    Twice now, for no good reason I have had an attack of dizziness and had to sit down immediately to keep from falling. Is this a sympom of a heart problem? I have high cholestrol but otherwise am in great health at age 71.5

    Hello BJA

     

    Firstly sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Dizziness can be caused by many things including a loss in blood pressure. I would suggest going to the doctors and asking for a heart stress test (it is easy, they just make you walk on the treadmill for a little while) and they will be able to give you a much better answer than anyone online who couldnt see you in person ever could.

     

    Thankyou for your question.

     

    sorry again about the delay.
