HI I have gone through your mail and as you said that you had faced few episodes of being dizzy in your past and type of tendency you are again suspecting. As you said that you are not having B.P.P.V.You have asked weather just thinking about dizzy may cause dizzy? For your this question I would like to say YES, because psychological factor are also included in the list of causes of vertigo.But as for as diagnosis is concern we should rule out other causes of vertigo and if no pathological cause could be detected than only one may think about psychological vertigo.You are advice to go for these basic investigations like- (1) E.N.G., (2) C.T.scan head with comments on C.P.angle, (3) Audiometery - pure tone & impedance. After this you should go for physical examination by Physician, E.N.T.specialist, Ophthalmologist and lastly Cardiologist and clinical co-relation of recmonded investigations to find out cause of your dizziness.
