Connect with Dr. Heather Campbell and DizzyDX, a product of Enhanced Clinical Insight, LLC:
“Symptoms of dizziness might include lightheadedness, brain fog, spinning or rocking, imbalance is often under the category of dizziness and that could come from a lot of different reasons. Some types of headaches can be associated with dizziness, especially certain types of migraines, ear fullness can create a sensation of some sort of disequilibrium. If a client comes and reports dizziness to a healthcare provider, the very first thing that needs to happen is to help the client describe what they’re feeling in different terms because dizziness itself is not going to help a healthcare professional choose a useful way to help a person.” – Dr. Heather Campbell
