My 30 year old daughter has had off and on dizzy spells where she has to grab onto something or she will fall. She now says that when trying to write something, she has been trying to write one letter but actually writes down a different letter. She said it is right in her head but she cannot write it correctly. She said she just doesn't feel right. This does not happen all the time, she just experienced the writing problem today, but has had the dizzy spells for a while now. Anyone have a thought as to what this might be? She does not have any medical insurance, works part time at a school and they don't offer it to the part time people. If I take her to an urgent care, I just want to know what to ask them to test for. Thanks so much for the help.

Hello and welcome to HW. I am sure you are very anxious about your daughter but my best advice is to have her seen by a physician. My daughter had issues with inappropriate speech once and was dizzy and lightheaded. Her problem was eventually dx as atypical migraine.

There are many medical conditions that may be causing your daughter's sx. To be on the safe side do take her to Urgent Care for a professional opinion.

Again a warm welcome,
