I randomly feel nauseous and dizzy?

I randomly feel nauseous and dizzy?

Nausea AND sizzynes: All seems to point towards the middle ear, or other neurological disorder. you should go to see an ENT specialist, or a neurologist. Often individuals with balance disorders feel dizzy, faint or light-headed. However, some people have the sensation that they’re floating or going to fall, while still others have confusion or trouble standing and walking. Sometimes balance disorders are accompanied by nausea or vomiting (vertigo). Due to the complexity of balance disorders, a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment is often required. Patients may be given a thorough series of highly specialized tests such as video nystagmography (VNG), which tests the inner ear and how the brain utilizes this information to maintain balance. Additionally, exams of inner ear, hearing tests, a review of medications and other assessments are given as needed. Many times, patients can be treated without surgery, but those who do require surgery will have care provided by a team of specialists. Other treatments may involve vestibular rehabilitation, which helps the brain readjust and recalibrate to an injury, dietary changes (especially for patients with Ménière’s disease) and drug therapy which may include anti-emetics to reduce nausea and vomiting. ...Read more

I'm nearly a week late for my period and I keep feeling ill and light headed. What do I do?

How about testing?: A simple and quick pregnancy test that I believe you can purchase from any pharmacy in the UK will likely give you an answer as to why your period is late. I take it you're sexually active? I don't know if there are age restrictions on purchasing items from the pharmacy such as pregnancy tests in the UK. If that were to be negative then, retry in 1 week. Perhaps, your period will come by then. ...Read more

Hi, I've been feeling ill for the last few weeks, keep feeling light headed, dizzy spells, twinges of head aches, wierd sensation in head and jaw?

Possibly allergic: If you are young and otherwise healthy, most likely explanation would be sinus congestion. Are you reacting to an allergen?

The dizziness could be vertigo, which can come about when your Eustachian tubes are blocked off. Would still see MD. ...Read more
