Dizziness for 3 weeks - no headache

Hello all:

I have been feeling dizzy especially when I walk since last 3 weeks, no headache, no ache or pain, just dizziness.

I am:
*Mild moderate hypertensive in range of 140/85 - take Micardus Plus 80 mg in morning.

*Was just diagnosed diabetic when I saw the doctor for dizziness (was 235 fasting glucose test) - gave me Glucophage 500 one in morning & one at nite

*ENT gave me Stugeron (cinnarizine) day & nite to help with Benign paroxysmal peripheral vertigo. Med works for an hour or two but the dizziness comes back & does not subside when I walk.

Q. Should I be worried that I still have this dizziness even after 3 weeks?
Q. Could the Glucophage dosage be too high for me that causes the drop in blood sugar causing more dizziness?
Q. Any other things I could suggest to my doctor?

thanks for your time

Check out BPPV on www.mayoclinic.com for home treatment option for this condition as well as its causes and risks. I hope this helps. The condition can come and go so the positional maneuver at home makes this treatment option more feasible.
