How to treat dizziness while seeing lights flashing on eye?

From past 2 months I m feeling dizzy. I m fine if I don t exert myself. When I play snooker my neck posture is down and I feel dizzy and I m unable to play, as soon as I lie down I become fine. When I drive at night I feel dizzy when I see lights flashing on my eye and loud sound also makes me dizzy after a while, but again as I lie down I m alright. What should I do?

The first thing would be to get an MRI of your brain and an X-ray PNS to help rule out a few suspicions. Your condition could also be related to vertigo or an ophthalmological condition and so I would recommend an elaborate evaluation.

Photosensitivity can also be related to a number of systemic, chronic conditions. So a really elaborate evaluation will be required.

Best wishes
