Age : 37, getting repetitive spells of dizziness with the frequency of
every 2-4days. I have gone through ECG several time and it was all
normal every time. My doctor suggested to go for holter which also
done for twice in last month but no diagnosis yet. In the mean time
dizziness spells are continuing. My doctor is clueless and hence want
to know what should do next? I have shown general physician and
cardiologist both.

Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your mail with diligence.
Banglore has very prominent cardiologist and hospitals to name two I would suggest to XXXXXXX a cardiologist in XXXXXXX Hridulalaya or in Wakefied XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Baba Institute of Medical Sciences (Dr Dash here is on panel with a XXXXXXX and you can quote my name). In Hridulaya, you can XXXXXXX Dr XXXXXXX PV, with my reference.
What we look for in a patient like you is risk factors for coronary artery disease that is 1. Family History, 2. Hypertension 3. Diabetes 4 Smoking, 5. Cholesterol the complete lipid profile 6. Obesity and sedentary life style 7, Stress and specially in your case 8. Cervical spine x-ray. So apart from what doctors are working on can you upload any of these investigatiions you know had been done and copy the Holter report. I believe, a Tread Mill Test is in order but that is after seeing your EKG and if we consider dizziness a Tilt Table Test may be needed. Looking forward to hear from you after which I can reach a provisional conclusion but if during chest pain EKG and blood tests were normal then you have not suffered from a heart attack. You can upload investigations (if there is a problem in doing through health care magic) in my personal email address YYYY@YYYY I will be happy to answer your further query. Good Luck.

With Best Wishes
