There are elderly ladies who occasionally say they nearly fell because they got dizzy.. what is dizzy? why does it afflict so many? Why do we accept it as if it was part of normal?
What if anything can be done about? This is a serious inquire, as it is just past over by most ...
Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Dizziness is a term that is often used to describe two different symptoms: lightheadedness and vertigo. Light-headedness is a feeling like you might faint. Vertigo is a feeling that you are spinning or moving, or that the the world is spinning around you.
There are probably many symptoms for each, but some common ones are: 1) a lack of oxygen to the brain. 2) pressure changes or fluid on/in the inner ear. 3) low blood pressure.
Of course, then the task of finding the cause of whatever symptom fits the specific individual is a deeper matter entirely.
I experienced dizziness which appeared that it was going to be chronic since I was plagued with it for at least six months before coming across the solution.
This problem was little crystals that build up in the inner ear and are commonly called 'ear rocks'. After obtaining the simple exercise to loosen them, it only took ONE session to dislodge them! No more dizziness upon standing or when lying down!
How wonderful to have such a simple and free way to eliminate what appeared to be a life alternating (for the worse) situation. During those six months I really got the sense of what 'being old' felt like.
As stated above, many possible reasons. But ear rocks can simply and easily be eliminated as one of them right at the start. It's the exercise where you lay across your bed and hang your head over the side. Specific directions should easily be found on the internet. If needed, I'll be glad to write out full instructions.
