Constant Dizzy/Lightheaded feeling

I have had constant dizziness and lightheaded feeling for about 2 weeks now. I have been hospitalized for food poisoning in that time and they ruled out anything being phyiscally wrong so that leads me to believe that it is a result of my anxiety. I am treated with Zoloft 50 mg and Ativan 1 mg as needed. The ativan seems to take away the dizziness.

Is this common to feel light headed and faint?? Also when i was in the hospital they had me on morphine for days and now i can't help but think im having some withdrawal. Im panicky and strange feeling

Anyone have any idea what this is or how i can help it??
