Should I continue refereering soccer whilst the vertigo is around?

Are high blood pressure and vertigo two completely different things?

Yes, they are, David, though hypertension can cause dizziness. So can a heart condition.

Vertigo is a condition of the inner ear in which the world appears to spin, you feel nauseous, may throw up, and can be so bad that you fall over.

It is diagnosed by the presence of "nystagmus" of the eyes during an attack, or during a test known as the Hallpark Dix manoeuvre.

I would recommend a consultation with a neurologist to confirm you have true vertigo; the solution is some simple exercises called the Epley manoeuvres.

If you have a heart condition, often going with high blood pressure, then see a cardiologist just to be sure it's not threatening something more serious.
