Q: My husband has gone through quite a few tests recently and the doctors cannot seem to find anything. He gets very dizzy and nauseated and has on occasion passed out. This seems to happen most often when he is in large buildings or malls. One doctor suggested that it may be an eye problem.
He has recently had cataract surgery and valves put in for glaucoma. He has an appointment with his eye doctor but it is a long time from now. Could you please let us know if there are any eye problems associated these symptoms?
A: Dizziness where the room seems to spin is known as vertigo. Sometimes it is confused with lightheadedness which is more common. If it is vertigo associated with nausea, there is often an inner ear - vestibular (balance) system problem. Passing out from vertigo is uncommon. Passing out from lightheadedness is more common. Neither of these should be directly related to the cataract and glaucoma surgeries. All medicines can have side effects, so this is one area to look at if all medical tests turn out normal.
