Do Dizzy Spells require Medical Advice?

User Profile
when i was a teenager, i used to get dizzy spells in which my body would sway back and forth and i would start to go backwards at a fast rate, and i had no control whastsoever over it. it caused me to bang into things, after which time i fell. it hasn't happened in 3 or 4 years ( now i can stop myself from banging into things when i get dizzy spells), but my stepmom said that that is not normal and that i should ask a doctor about it. do you agree, or do you think i should just not worry about it because it's been so long?

Yes, this condition requires medical advice. You can visit a neurologist and an ENT-specialist. It seems that you are experiencing obvious problems keeping balance.
