Brief Answer: Dizziness & reason. Detailed Answer: Hello, XXXX. Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum. I would come up with these possibilities for this dizziness & lightheaded symptoms, these includes. 1 Hypo tension , diagnosis can be confirmed by physical examination of blood pressure at the time of this type of episode.We call it as postural hypotension . 2 Hypertension , diagnosis can be confirmed by physical examination at the time of dizziness and lightheaded symptoms.
