Lightheaded x 6 yea: Would follow up with ear nose throat doctor, ask about tests of vestibular function and vestibular physical therapy. Would also check tilt table test ( cardiology) for autonomic dysfunction and POTS syndrome, if you get a fast heart rate when rising from lying position. May also consider MRI or head and testing for Lyme which can affect Romberg.
