Hi, Dizziness is lightheadedness, feeling of fainting, being unsteady, loss of balance, or vertigo - a feeling that you or the room is spinning or moving happens when you change the position of your head, usually not serious and either quickly resolve on their own or are easily treatable. Causes may be a sudden drop in your blood pressure may be due to shock, low blood sugar levels, dehydration from vomiting, diarrhea, fever, or other causes, getting up too quickly from a lying or seated position mostly in elderly people. Heart problems can be serious. Some You need to avoid sudden changes in posture, If you are thirsty or lightheaded drink as much as  fluids like glucose water, fruit juice and If you are unable to keep fluids down from nausea or vomiting, you may need intravenous fluids ehich can be given at hospital.
Most times benign positional vertigo and labyrinthitis go away on their own within a few weeks. During attacks of vertigo from any cause, try to rest and lie still, avoid sudden changes in your position as well as bright lights. Some vertigo can be reduced by physical therapy. Be cautious about driving or using machinery. Medications include antihistamines, sedatives, or pills for nausea. If still you face proplems see your doctor for check up and investigation if necessary. Take care.
