Thank you for posting the query.

The cause of dizziness in your husband could be due to:

1. Blood clot (haemorrhage) in the brain,

2. Concussion- after head injury, concussion ca lead to dizziness.

As of now, symptomatic treatment with betahistine would suffice.

Dizziness would subside in a few days.
