Dizziness - Definition

May 2017


Definition


Dizziness is a term not frequently used in medicine. Dizziness is described as temporarily blurred vision and could sometimes approach a sensation of vertigo, that the space around you is moving, or loss of balance, which is a difficulty in maintaining a stable standing position. Dizziness is characterized by lightheadedness, blurred vision, and sometimes the feeling of being away for a few seconds, and fainting. Drug treatment, a change in blood pressure, breathing too fast, anemia, or low blood sugar can cause dizziness. The cause must be treated so that the dizziness disappears.
