Dizziness is a feeling of lightheadedness, unsteadiness, or a sensation that you are about to faint. It is a common symptom that can result from a variety of medical conditions, including those related to the heart.
There are many potential causes of dizziness, including low blood pressure, low blood count, dehydration, inner ear problems, anxiety, and certain medications.
When it comes to cardiac problems, some of the potential causes of dizziness can include heart rhythm abnormalities, reduced blood flow to the brain due to a blockage in the blood vessels, or a decrease in cardiac output due to heart failure.
The treatment for dizziness will depend on the underlying cause of the symptom. If the dizziness is related to a cardiac problem, treatment may involve medications to improve heart function or manage heart rhythm disorders. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary.
