Dizziness is a feeling of imbalance, which leads to a disturbance in movement and standing, as well as a disturbance in the protection of the head position.
Dizziness is often not indicative of a serious health problem, but this must be confirmed by a doctor, especially if the dizziness is accompanied by other symptoms such as fainting spells and headaches, or if they occur repeatedly.
According to Dr. Muhammad Samaha, a consultant brain, neurosurgeon and spine surgeon, young people may suffer from constant dizziness; Because of the inflammation of the semicircular canals in the ear that are responsible for balance, and because of the drop in pressure, especially in women, as well as weakness in cerebral perfusion in the elderly, as cerebral perfusion in patients over the age of 50 may lead to hardening of the arteries and persistent dizziness.
