Thank you for posting your query.

Dizziness may be due to some common causes, such as

1. Peripheral vertigo including BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). In this condition, there is dizziness, which is aggravated with change of head position. Treatment with betahistine tablets and vestibular adaptation exercises leads to improvement.

2. Central vertigo due to brain related causes- such as lack of blood flow to brain, infections, tumor, etc. In these conditions, usually there would be additional symptoms such as headache, double vision, slurred speech, imbalance while walking, etc. MRI scan of brain may be done to determine the cause.

I think in your case, the likely cause of dizziness seems to be the first one.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have more queries.

Best wishes,
