Dizziness can be split into two different categories – lightheadedness and vertigo. Most of us have experienced lighttheadedness, where we feel as if we are about to faint. If you lie down, this feeling usually disappears. If it doesn’t go away, lightheadedness may provoke nausea and vomiting.
Vertigo, on the other hand, is a type of dizziness where a person feels like he or his surroundings are moving, even though there is no movement. This induces a feeling that you are off balance, spinning, falling, whirling, or tilting. Severe vertigo may induce nausea or vomiting, and possibly throw the person off balance.
