Hallo Bernadette
We get two kinds of dizziness - a feeling of wanting to faint (caused by low blood pressure, anemia, heart rythm problems, low blood sugar) and a feeling of being off balance (the earth spinning) which can be related to middle ear disorders or neurological problems, usually associated with a feeling a nausea. Please let your doctor examine him to see which could be the problem. He may need blood tests, ECG or referral to ENT specialist.
