It seems from the history that you are having dizziness without headache.
Since you have undergone CT scan and blood tests and all have come normal I would like to consider hypotension or hypovolemia or hypoxia secondary to carotid artery atherosclerosis as cause.
As of now you can take anti vertigo drugs and require further evaluation to find out the underlying cause and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
