I have been experiencing mild dizziness for over a week that seems to hit randomly. Sometimes accompanied by blurred vision.Seems more like a loss of balance than anything else and lasts only a minute or so.However, this seems to be happening several times a day. If I hold onto a fixed object when it hits, I am ok until it passes. I have had these dizzy problems before but never more than once or twice a year. I have gout-like pain in left toes and ankle for the last week also (no swelling, just pain). Yes I have had gout flare ups before.
I am more worried about dizziness as I drive an hour to and from work and work in outdoor environment on asphalt/concrete. Could those conditions cause random, mild dizzy sensations?
Thank you for your help.
