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

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.

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
