Dizziness is feeling faint, woozy, weak or unsteady. It is rarely a signal of life-threatening condition.
Vertigo is a type of dizziness that creates the false sense that you or your surroundings are spinning or moving. Dizziness has many possible causes, including inner ear disturbance, motion sickness and medication effects. Conditions such as infection, injury, or poor circulation can be underlying causes of dizziness and vertigo. Your dizziness triggers, how it makes you feel, how long it lasts and any other associated symptoms can provide clues for our physician to determine the possible causes and treatment options.
