(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.
- Low blood sugar.
- 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.
