Health Tip: Why is the Room Spinning?

(HealthDay News) -- Dizziness typically isn't a serious problem. Most of the time, dizziness resolves itself or the underlying cause can be treated fairly easily.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine offers these common reasons for dizziness:

  • Standing up too quickly.
  • The flu.
  • The common cold.
  • Allergies.
  • Low blood sugar.
  • Vertigo.
  • Problems with the inner ear, such as Meniere's disease or labyrinthitis.
  • Irregular heart rhythm, stroke, brain tumor, multiple sclerosis, or significant drop in blood pressure. These less common but more serious causes require evaluation and treatment.
