My husband came home from work today telling me that during his work day, he became quite dizzy and unable to walk without bumping into walls. His facility has on site medical staff that were able to take his blood pressure . His reading was 158/100 on left arm and 154/92 on his right arm. The dizziness began at 12:30pm today and lasted until approximately 3pm . Can you offer any suggestions?

Hi meganvella,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Your husband has slightly raised blood pressure and it is not a likely cause for his symptoms but he seems quite sick.
Possible causes can be a severe infection, Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, infection of inner ear-labyrinthitis, dyselectrolytemia.
He should get examined by a physician and should get a detailed investigations if needed as soon as possible.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
