Hi,

'Dizzy' suggests that you feel as if your head is spinning. Some people feel dizzy when they get to the top of a very high tower and look down.

Hi Bryan,

In addition to Alan's answer you might be interested to learn that your question should read "What does dizzy mean?" Also, it's probably a good idea for you if you start using a dictionary if you want to learn the meaning of new words.
