I am 23 years old. I just started noticing this crazy feeling that comes over me. It has been happening for about a week or so now. For instance, I can be sitting completely still and all of a sudden I get this dizzy feeling that causes me to close my eyes.
The other day at work, I walked to the water fountain and on my way back, a dizzy spell hit me but this time it was different. I couldn't feel my feet hitting the floor. It freaked me out. The feeling that I get when I am dizzy is kind of like the feeling that comes over you when you are in an elevator. That is the best that I can explain it.
Any suggestions?

  • Bless you....i certainly know how you feel with Dizziness....there are many causes .I would suggest a visit to your doctor.Sudden drops in blood pressure and suger levels can cause the dizziness you explain....is there anything you are eating or drinking before these spell's happen?I really would be inclined to visit the doctor....you could even have an inner ear infection that you are not aware of....have you been through any stress or axious related problems of late etc etc etc....the list is endless ...hope this helps x
