In brief: Peripheral vertigo?

A feeling of dizziness may mean a lot of things.
Do you feel movement? Peripheral vertigo causes us to feel movement in excess relative to our movements. It is common with bending over and picking something up. It may improve with sitting or lying still. It also gets worse with turning the head sometimes. Sometimes other causes could be involved- low blood count, dehydration are examples 2
