Brief Answer:
Hernia and dizziness are not related

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir.

Your fiance's symptoms are possibly due to either-
Ear problem (positional vertigo or inner ear imbalance-vestibular insufficiency) or
Cardiovascular problem or
Anaemia.

Hence she requires further evaluation and detailed work-up to identify underlying cause. Kindly consult ENT surgeon for further examination and planning standard of care.

Umbilical hernia is mostly (99%) asymptomatic and doesn't cause any problems and is not related to dizziness. However it has to operated only if required.

Hope this answers your query.
