Welcome. The best answer I can give is to find a general physician or Internist to guide you in the right direction for further testing and treatment. Some medications can cause dizziness in some people. Best to have a doctor help you sort out what is what.
Each new symptom should be reported to a doctor who will keep an eye on you and address your concerns.
