Sounds to me like a bit of Labyrinthitis but I'm not really sure. Google it to find out if your symptomes match. It can come out of nowhere, one day your fine the next you feel like your on a merry go round that doesn't stop. Becareful with the effexor xr it crazy stuff, it most likely will help the dizzness but when your ready to come off of it you have to wean. I've been on it twice and it was harder for me to start it then wean off.
