From the Back Cover:

  • When you turn your head suddenly, do you feel sick to your stomach?
  • Do you often become dizzy when you get up too quickly from a chair?
  • Have you ever felt a sense of motion when you're standing still?
You're not alone. Whether it's fainting, imbalance, or spinning sensations, these disorders affect 76 million Americans at some time in their lives. Feeling Dizzy explains what can go wrong, what physicians can do to diagnose and treat problems, what you can do to help yourself, and how you can finally regain your sense of balance. The first complete book on the subject written from the general reader, Feeling Dizzy:
  • Identifies and explains the three types of dizziness: vertigo, imbalance, and fainting.
  • Describes treatment options, from medication or surgery to therapy and rehabilitation.
  • Outlines self-help options, including relaxation techniques, biofeedback, and exercise.
