What causes recurrent dizziness?

I was feeling dizzy and fell backwards, I had shortness of breath. Of course now my back hurts and the pain goes up and down my left leg, into my abdomen, and now I am feeling it in the right shoulder, neck, up to my head. I been having dizzy spells for a while now. I have the PCSO and I do not have blood pressure problems consistently or sugar. Any ideas.

Possible causes for recurrent giddiness may be due to BPPV or Infection or anemia or hypotension or hypoglycemia or seizure disorder etc. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Avoid high risk activities, use tablet Vertin thrice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

I have a very dizzy feeling when getting up from driving or just sitting in a chair at home or anywhere. The feeling is like I have been hit in the head. I have a feeling like I will fall down and it scares the shit out of my. It can last up to 10 minutes then leaves but while it is happening I cannot do anything.

I have multiple dizzy spells throughout the day. They only last one or two seconds but occur repeatedly e very day. I also bear a crackling sound like tiny bubbles bursting in my ears at night. This began after a very severe attack of vertigo that lasted all.most two weeks. It has now been six months and still having trouble. There was a period of time.e between the big attack and the beginning of the crackling and dizziness.

I feel very lightheaded at certain times of the day-not always. I am 73 and have never experienced this before the last 3 weeks. I had a physical last month and all was good-normal ekg normal blood pressure. the only medication I take is crestor 5mg I quit taking the Crestor after 2 days of this lightheadedness because it seemed to occur shortly after I had taken the medication. Symptoms have continued. no discomfort- just very lightheaded-like I might faint-I have never fainted in my life.
