Patients frequently complain of “dizziness” and use this term to describe various symptoms. It can be difficult to obtain an accurate history of the symptoms, especially with the time constraints that clinicians often face. The symptom of dizziness requires taking an open-ended history. Direct questions often suggest symptoms to the patient and can lead to a wrong diagnosis.
