DISCLAIMER: We do NOT consider ourselves "dizzy" experts, but provide the following info as a service to patients. As we are an ENT practice, we will only perform the appropriate testing and evaluation to see if the ears and/or allergies are a cause of a patient's dizziness. Anything more needs to be arranged through your primary care physician or another specialist. Generally speaking, a neurologist is the specialist able to provide the most comprehensive evaluation of dizziness.

Dizziness described as sudden episodes that lasts only seconds to minutes (never more than 30 minutes) followed by periods of relative normalcy...

...that occurs even if you are sitting totally still.


This situation suggests a non-ear etiology. A cardiac arrhythmia, vascular insufficiency, or small TIA may be causing your symptoms. It is perhaps best to see your primary care doctor or even emergency room and get a full cardiac, neurological, and vascular workup.
