Many reasons: There can be many reasons for this. A common reason includes orthostatic hypotension from dehydration, in which case adequate hydration and getting up slowly and pausing for 15-30 seconds before walking may help. Another reason can be new medications. If this persists or gets worse, you should see your PCP. Further reading: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/dizzinessandvertigo.html ...Read more

Not okay: From your description, it doesn't sound like your grandmother is okay. At the very least, she's very anxious. If the er doctors examined discharged her, they must have given suggestions for follow-up care. Were medications prescribed? You could call her physician and ask for help. Also, er doctors (like any of us) can be wrong. If you're concerned, return to er for a recheck. ...Read more

Possibilities...: I would need to have more information to give an accurate answer on what this could be.If this just started and you are also having fever this could be related to a virus. The most important thing is drink fluids in order to avoid dehydration and rest. Other possibilities: gastritis, indigestion, pregnancy, among others. If symptoms persist go to an urgent care center for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

See a local doctor: There are many causes of these symptoms, pregnancy being one, and reaction to medications, anxiety, viruses as well as a plethora of neurological problems. Start with the most probable, is pregnancy possible, if so test for it. If medication or food intolerance, check for it too. If you still cannot determine the cause, see a local doctor.
