Hi Judee, vertigo is a special type of dizziness, where you feel everything is spinning and you can't balance. If you do have that feeling, it's not related to blood pressure. Vertigo is caused by problems in the brain or more often in the inner ear due to inner ear infection. If you have vertigo, you may choose to consult a doctor right away or watch it out for a few days. Some people may find the vertigo goes away in a few days, some may last for a longer time. If you choose to watch it out, try to stay in bed to preventing falling. If you go see your Dr. you can get medication that helps your balance.
