Hi there. Dizziness is feeling of spinning and can be due to diseases of balance organs of the inner ear or symptoms of a tumor or stroke. it can be due to high blood pressure, low blood pressure including bleeding disorders causing anemia, heart diseases like arrhythmias, attack, cardiomyopathy, medications like blood pressure drugs , antidepressants, metabolic disorders like hypoxia, hypoglycemia, dehydration. in women, internal bleeding or hemorrhage, anemia, infections, endocrine disease like thyroid, pituitary gland  and adrenals, allergies may cause wheezing, low blood pressure, can trigger sinusitis and resulting dizziness. Psychiatrist reasons like depression, panic disorder and hyperventilation also need to be excluded. Take care.
