Dizzy and seeing things that aren't really there I have been slightly dizzy, my head sometimes feels heavy, and i sometimes see things that aren't really there. What are some things i could have? Please help.

I : I recommend that you have a neurologic evaluation. Seeing things that aren't there could be a visual hallucination. There could be a problem with brain function. With disorders like schizophrenia, a person would be more likely to hear sounds that weren't there than to see things. ...Read more

Can being dizzy and heavy headed be due to cold or is it hay fever feel really horibble :(?

You may have both: Severe allergies/hay fever can make you miserable..I can attest to that. I do my lawn and if i don't clean up---rinsing my eyes/nose and use some meds, i can be sure to suffer for few days. Having some hayfever and then having a cold on top can really create some misery for me..Congestion, headheavy, can't breath, nagging headaches and dizziness...I feel your pain. U should consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been having dizzy spells and my head feel real heavy and my neck is tight?

I have been having dizzy spells and my head feel real heavy and my neck is tight?

Dizziness again: My least favorite symptom is dizziness because it is a vague non-medical term meaning many different things to different people. Head heaviness and neck tightness however are not vague--they are common symptoms usually due to either a muscular problem (including stress) or structural problems of the spine. Try simple stretches of the neck etc, if this doesn't work out in a week, get it checked. ...Read more
