Thanks for the query

It could be neurological issue or a cardiac one. Depending on what the examination findings reveal it has to be evaluated for. PLease get him to a good physician to know where exactly the lesion is. The examination of the ear should nt be missed out

Hi, For the last two days I have been suffering terrible dizzy spells. The first time was yesterday when I was getting gas for my truck and almost passed out. I became extremely shaky and couldn t walk straight. I went home and had my roommate drive me to the ER. There they did a blood, and urine test while checking my blood sugar and blood pressure. When I saw the dr he said that I was dehydrated due to having a very concentrated urine sample. Today I have been drinking plenty of water and have also eaten food. I however am still getting terrible dizzy spells and it seems like when I have to do a bowel movement these spells come on. I have to work in a couple days and cannot afford to loose my job, please help me understand what s going on. Thank you

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
