Thanks for posting your query.

The overuse of a bioidentical cream of progesterone 7 months ago is not likely to cause a persistent dizziness even after so many months.

The other causes of persistent dizziness are high blood pressure, low blood pressure, cervical spondylitis, anemia, and low blood sugar, use of sedatives, tranquilizers and antidepressants, electrolyte imbalances, thyroid hormone disturbances, diabetes, middle ear disease.

Uncommon reasons can be due to brain reasons or arrhythmias and cardiomyopathies.

My purpose of telling you the causes is so that you don't take your symptoms lightly and consult your doctor and get yourself physically examined along with various investigations.

I hope you understand.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.

Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
