I bent over to pick something up off of the floor and when I straightened back up I got dizzy and my eyes seemed to cross and get weird and I couldn't control them. It took a few minutes before it stopped after I was led to a place to sit down. What could cause this?
Dizziness can have different sensations. If your dizziness feels like you are spinning or the room is spinning (and especially if associated with nausea or vomiting), this might be due to an inner ear problem. I would recommend that you contact your primary care physician.He or she might refer you to an ENT for further evaluation and treatment. I would strongly caution you not to drive or operate heavy machinery while dizzy as you might injure yourself or others.
