Dizziness - liability to sudden and unprovoked or unprecipitated episodes of disabling dizziness
Sudden is defined as 'without sufficient warning to allow safe evasive action when driving' and disabling is defined as 'unable to continue safely with the activity being performed'.
e.g. Meniere's disease, labyrinthine or other brain stem disorders
