Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting the query

Dizziness is a symptom of various underlying causes which needs to be thoroughly evaluated. The commonest causes of dizziness are:

1. Reduced sugar levels in the body (hypoglycemia)
2. Reduced or increased blood pressure (hypotension/hypertension)
3. Cardiac related problems
4. Electrolyte imbalance
5. Ear related issues,
6. Acidity
7. Migraine,
8. Refractive errors, etc.

It is difficult to find out the actual cause of dizziness, but, very easy to treat once the cause is known.

Hope I have answered your query; I will be available for the follow-up queries.
