WHAT DOES LIGHT-HEADED MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Lightheadedness

Lightheadedness is a common and often unpleasant sensation of dizziness and/or feeling that one may be about to faint, which may be transient, recurrent, or occasionally chronic. In some cases, the individual may feel as though his or her head is weightless. The individual may also feel as though the room is "spinning" or moving. Most causes of lightheadedness are not serious and either cure themselves quickly or are easily treated. Keeping a sense of balance requires the brain to process a variety of information received from the eyes, the nervous system, and the inner ears. However, if the brain is unable to process signals from all or some of these locations, if the messages are contradictory, or if the sensory systems aren't functioning properly, an individual may experience lightheadedness or dizziness.
