Several dizzy spells

For about 2 years now I have been having severe dizzy spells. Lately I have started blacking right out and hitting the floor.  When these spells happen when I am standing my right leg keeps collapsing. I have had my blood pressure checked and it is all fine. I suffer from severe diabetic neuropathy for the last 8 years

You need to be worked up for syncope or passing out spells. You need to go to the nearest  Er and get admitted. You will be worked up for neurological and cardiac causes and will get an ekg, carotid ultrasound, echo, you ll be placed on a heart monitor while in the hospital and maybe even go home on one if nothing is to be found. But this is serious and you need to be checked out. Also please don't drive till further instructions from your physician

Hello~You may have a pinched nerve in your  neck, this can certainly cause the dizziness and passing out. I suggest seeing a chiropractor, he/she will take an x-ray of your neck and will be able to determine if this is the cause. If it is a few adjustments should have you feeling better. Also, you mentioned being diabetic, you may need your meds changed, you may even be having small seizures.
