Q. I have had some nasty allergies all of my 72 years. Usually, my head gets clogged up. Recently, my ears became involved and I experienced vertigo for the first time. Is this common?
We have to define terms first. Vertigo is the feeling that either you or your surroundings are spinning. It is more than being just lightheaded or dizzy, because you are subjected to the illusion of movement.
If you feel your body is moving, you have subjective vertigo. When you sense that your surroundings are moving, you have objective vertigo.
Musicians Roland Kushner and Roger Latzgo and will perform a benefit concert, 4 p.m. Sept. 15, Trinity Episcopal Church of Bethlehem, 44 E. Market St., Bethlehem.
A reception follows the concert, a benefit for the Trinity Church Soup Kitchen. A donor is expected to match revenues from ticket sales.
