Show 992: Overcoming Vertigo

In Stock
Learning when dizziness is dangerous and warrants emergency attention could mean early intervention in a serious situation.

Dizziness is a common problem, but not easily diagnosed. A little lightheadedness could be a reaction to dehydration or blood pressure medication. But when the room is spinning, walking can become difficult or even dangerous. A fall, especially for an older person, can have very serious consequences.

When does vertigo signal a potentially serious condition? Could it be a sign of a stroke or a migraine? We’ll find out how to determine if this symptom deserves an emergency department visit, and what can be done to correct the most common causes of vertigo.
