Dizziness is a general, non-specific term often used to describe a variety of associated symptoms, such as feeling faint, lightheaded, nauseous, weak, or unsteady. If your dizziness is creating the sense that you or your surroundings are spinning, then that is more accurately called vertigo.  Dizziness is a common reason for doctor visits and is certainly uncomfortable and/or annoying to experience, but it's unlikely to represent a serious, life-threatening condition. There are many ways to overcome dizziness at home, but be aware of the "red flags" that signal the need for medical intervention.
