Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The dizziness produced on lifting the head up during gargling is due to the compression of the blood vessel supplying to the brain, which is termed as cervical vertigo. Most of the times it is a normal phenomenon which passes of gradually. If it persists then you need to consult a good spine specialist.
