(HealthDay News) -- Occasional dizziness should not be a major concern. But if you feel this way often and it begins to interfere with your daily life, you may have a balance disorder, the National Institutes of Health says.
More than 40 percent of Americans will visit a doctor for an episode of dizziness at some point in their lives, the agency says.
The NIH suggests visiting your doctor if:
- You often feel dizzy or unsteady.
- You feel like you are moving when you're standing or sitting still.
- You lose your balance and fall.
- You feel as if you're falling.
- You feel lightheaded, or as if you will faint.
- Your vision becomes blurred.
- You feel disoriented, losing your sense of time, place or identity.
