Dizziness is one of the most common reasons for people presenting to Accident and Emergency departments, and to see a GP. Fortunately it is rarely serious in nature. So where do we start in trying to treat dizziness? Like the song says “I’m so dizzy, my head is spinning.”
Where the song was talking about feelings of love, the difficulty in diagnosing the dizzy patient is that the word “dizzy” can be used to describe a variety of symptoms of various conditions.
Symptoms can be in short spells lasting seconds, or last for hours, up to a constant feeling of dizziness. These are just some of the more common descriptions of a large variety of possible symptoms and causative factors.
Both young and old can experience dizziness symptoms and seeing a Physiotherapist trained in treating such conditions can help those suffering to improve their quality of life.
