Hi and welcome to HCM

Frequent dizziness can be due to many causes. Common ones are cervical spondylosis and Meniere's disease.

I would suggest that you should get an ENT examination done and also get a MRI of head and neck done.

You can take Betahistine 16mg thrice a day with gradual tapering down as you become symptom free.

Physiotherapy including isometric neck exercises will be helpful in case of cervical spondylosis.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
