Hi!
Well yes, stroke, brain bleed can be a cause of dizziness, and since you have a previous history, there is no harm in getting this evaluated. However, usually this dizziness is accompanied by some neurological sign like numbness, tingling, loss of sensation etc.
The cause could be hormonal imbalance due to attaining menopause.
You need to get examined to rule out a few things such as low blood pressure, postural hypotension (fall in blood pressure, cervical spinal nerve compression, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), severe anemia, an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), GERD or gastric reflux, and internal ear infections.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP to run tests and examination to clinch a diagnosis.
Take care!

Thank you for your ideas on my little problem Doc, i have seen my GP and he has diagnosed me with BPPV. I am very relieved it is nothing serious . He has tried Epley manoeuvre on me but i`m not sure it has worked so he will try it again in a few days. If  this fails he will refer me to the balance clinic at my local hospital. Many thanks
