Dizziness, tingling sensation in tongue, head spinning. Causes and treatment for symptoms?

Today i have been experiencing dizziness all day consistently. It has not increased or decreased. Every time i get a dizzy sensation i get a tingling feeling in the front of my tongue . The same thing happend to me last month which led to the ER. There were no tests done and I was sent home. I woke up the next morning and was fine. Im very concerned because the spells are so intense i feel like im going to pass out. Just to verify the dizzy consists of my actual self feeling like its spinning rather than the room spinning.

Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms require further evaluation. Episodes of dizziness along with tingling in the tongue could represent posterior circulation ischemia (lack of blood flow to back of brain). So, an MRI along with MR angiogram of brain should be done to diagnose that. In the meanwhile, you should be on aspirin to prevent further ischemia and strokes.

Risk factor evaluation would include tests for BP, sugar, cholesterol and homocysteine.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
