Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
When your ECG and Chest X-ray are normal it means you don't have any major problem. The cause of your dizziness is the low haemoglobin levels only. Even if you have started taking iron therapy now, it will take at least 15 days to improve.

Hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!!
The dizziness is mostly because of the anemia you have because of iron deficiency and please get your blood pressure checked once during your dizziness episode just in case to rule out hypotension, or you can get your blood pressure checked in lying down and standing position to rule out postural hypotension since you say it is more early morning when you get up from bed.
