Without evaluating you, I cannot say for sure what is happening. However, we do see dizziness and fluctuating blood pressure and heart rate quite frequently among adolescents, especially because of growth and hormonal changes. It is most important that you are drinking 32-48 ounces of fluid a day (not soda) plus having a salty snack (not chips), not skipping meals, and not having caffeine. This tends to help the large majority of teenagers with this problem. If you are still having this problem, though, you should see a pediatric cardiologist for further evaluation and consideration of medications.
