There are various possibilities for your symptoms.First of all anemia has to be ruled out as it can cause all the symptoms that you are having.Pls get HB and peripheral blood film done to rule it out. Important causes of dizziness include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or hypotension (low blood pressure) .Pls get yourself evaluated for that also.
Some other causes of dizziness are dehydration, infections,TIA,inner ear diseases,endocrine disorders like thyroid, adrenal glands, and pituitary gland disorders,anxiety and panic attacks,blood pressure medications,pain relievers and some antibiotics.Cervical spondolysis,vertebrobasilar insufficiency and carotid sinus syndrome can also cause dizziness.
I sincerely advise you to consult a physician/ENT surgeon and get these possibilities ruled out.Investigations like blood tests,blood sugar levels,CT scan head and neck and MRA may be needed to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
