Spinning round fast... lol Seriously its.... Vertigo, Disequilibrium and Pre-syncope are the terms in use by most doctors. Dizziness is sometimes a symptom of a balance disorder.

Hi, I started feeling really dizzy today whilst walking my dog - and it hasn t stopped, when i tilt my head back, when i lie down, when i stand up, when i walk. It s really frustrating! When i was walking it felt like i d spun in circles and tried to run ... the gravity of earth pulling me sideways. But when i lay down it s a whole room spinning feeling that you get after you ve drunk copious amounts of alcohol ... please help.

I woke up and was sweaty, I felt sick and was puking up bile. I sat down and the room began to spin. It wore off after a while and haven t had the feeling again. I am 72 years of age. I weigh about 16.5 stone. I suffer with high blood pressure and am an active golfer. I like the occasional glass of red wine.
