Nevertheless, it won't hurt if you go see your dr to have your ears and blood pressure checked and your blood tested. (on a similar note, my son got dizzy after riding the roller coaster 10 times in a row!). ...Read more

See doctor soon: Blacking out spells are bad news. Go get that checked out right away. That is more likely to be a heart arrhythmia , not an inner ear problem. ...Read more

Retinal problem?: Floaters could signal a retinal problem, which could be a big problem if related to trauma. See your doctor ASAP for a more complete evaluation, and ask if any imaging or a referral to an eye doctor is appropriate. Hope this helps! ...Read more
