Get this checked!: At 87, falls can lead to hip (and other)fractures and an enormous reduction in one's quality of life. Have your mother seen by her primary care provider for a complete physical exam. There are many conditions that can cause wooziness - anemia, heart rhythm problems, blockages in the arteries of the neck, etc. Best to diagnose and treat before a serious event occurs. Good luck.
