Since I was a child I had been getting dizzy spells, exspecially when I'm scooped over and stand up. It hasn't been bad enough to get it checked out. But on occasions I still get these dizzy spell or I kind of black out, but not pass out. Could inner ear problems cause this? Has anyone else gone through these lind of spells?

I had this problem also for years. I don't know what it was that set him off but I had gone to a new doctor in town, he was oriental and on the "short" side height wise. He asked me if I got dizzy spells when I stood up and I said yes - he said, "Tall girl, high altitudes". He then sent me for a blood test and found out I had low blood sugar. When I adjusted my diet I stopped having the dizzy spells - unless I cheat. I recommend you see a doctor!

I got this for a long time and when I plucked up the courage to go to the Doctor it was just wax in my ears , a few days with drops to soften it then a painless syringe and it was gone m , Mt mum gets this and it is her blood pressure and because she gets up too quickly , Don't suffer in silence please go the Doctor and get your mind put at rest . Only takes a minute xx

You say that it isn't bad enough to have it checked out, but you say that you have been having this happen to you since childhood. You definately should bring this to the attention of your physician. Better to be safe than sorry.

Several years ago I had an inner ear infection and even though the infection left, I now have frequent dizzy spells caused by it. Have your doctor recommend some exercises for balance the next time you go in for a checkup. That sometimes help. I also have found that wearing a magnetic necklace makes the dizzy spells less severe. It can't hurt to try one and see if it works in your case.
