Vertigo: Do you feel like the room is spinning around you? If so , you may have vertigo. See MD for full history physical and neuro exam. Evaluation for dizziness is complex and your heart rate and rhythm will also be analyzed. Are you on any medicine? If you feel like you are going to pass out or you have bled a lot from menstruation or have anemia or heart condition or epilepsy call 911. Good luck.
