Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to an inner ear disorder.

Another possible cause to consider would be lisinopril adverse effects. When did you start taking lisinopril?

For this reason, I recommend first consulting first with an ENT specialist for a careful physical exam and labyrinthine tests.

Some blood lab tests are also necessary:

- complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation
- thyroid hormone levels for thyroid gland dysfunction
- blood electrolytes.

It is also important performing a cervical spine X ray study in order to exclude possible chronic degeneration of the cervical vertebral column, which can lead to dizziness.

Hope to have been helpful!

Wishing good health,
