Brief Answer:
Since when you have this dizziness?

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

There are many causes of Dizziness . From Simple and easily treatable causes to serious ones .

Common causes are :

1. Low or High Blood pressure .
2. Low levels of Sodium in blood .
3. Anemia.
4. Vitamin Deficiency.
5. Problems in Heart.
6. Problems in Inner ear.
7. Problems in Brain.

In my practise I would recommend my patients to do one set of tests which are as follows :

Complete Hemogram, Serum TSH, Serum Vitamin B12, ECG and Blood pressure testing .

If these tests come normal then I would advise them to get a Ear check up by an ENT doctor and if that turns out to be normal I will advise for MRI brain.

You can follow the same method .
