She does need to see a doctor to find the reason for feeling dizzy. It's unpleasant, scary and can be dangerous - she could fall and hurt herself. Some medications for hypertension can make people feel dizzy.

Last June, my now 71-year-old mom became disillusioned and didn t know where she was. She was talking out of her head , too, not making any sense. A Cat scan showed nothing. Now, she is continually dizzy and has pressure in her head all the time. Her doctor contributed it to high blood pressure. He claims it to be Accelerated hypertension, and has been treating it as such. No meds are helping. She is still dizzy all the time and the pressure is still there. All the doctor does is keep switching meds to see what works . I m fearful of a tumor. She s been in and out of the ER so many times, and no one or nothing is helping. I would appreciate your advice.
