Hi This last week I have been having one case of sudden vertigo that lasted an hour and half, then days of mild dizziness, and some eye spasms also. I have normally low blood pressure, not a lot of energy it comes and goes. I don't eat much red meat, take a few vitamins, but not every day.
I'm usually a problem free person, no major issues, have been told my blood cells needs more water etc.non smoker, 1 drink per week on average, two coffees a day. Healthy weight 68kg 176cm height blood pressure about 110/70

Thanks for posting your query.
Having mild dizziness with some eye spasms may be associated with many reasons which need to be ruled out one by one in your case-
1. Abnormal position of the neck- avoid using a pillow for a few days and see if it improves.
2.Migraine headaches are also associated with dizziness. Do you have any associoation with headache?
3. Inner ear problems- due to inflammation or miniere's disease- Can be ruled out on examination by a specialist.
4. Stroke causing compromised blood supply to the inner ear. This can be ruled out by your general physician after looking for all the risk factors.
5. cervical spondylosis- usually associated with pain in the neck.
6. Metabolic conditions such as hyponatremia
You need to rule out the above conditions and then get the treatment according to the diagnosis.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
