When To Seek Emergency Care for Dizziness
Dizziness can occur as a result of low blood sugar, inner ear infection, poor circulation, low blood pressure, dehydration, injury or Meniere's disease. It could also be a side effect of medication. Experts recommend seeking emergency care if you experience dizziness with any of the following: severe headache, limb weakness, loss of consciousness, blurred or double vision, difficulty walking or talking, numbness or tingling, hearing loss, chest pain, or rapid or slow heart rate. These symptoms may indicate a more serious problem such as stroke, heart attack or a brain tumor.
