Brief Answer:
May be an ear disease or motion sickness

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXX,

Welcome to HCM. I have gone through the question and understand your concerns.

Certain ear diseases or infections like Meniere's disease can cause problems in the balance of the ear and lead to dizziness. Motion sickness as well occurs in a similar way. In Meniere's disease, there are changes in the fluid in the ear cavity which causes the dizziness.

One more possible cause is hypoglycemia but this is not likely since the dizziness continued even after you ate breakfast.

I think it would be a good idea to see a ear doctor to get your ears examined. A few ways this can be done is to test the auditory nerve which is responsible for balance.

Also see a doctor if you get a fever because this may indicate a viral fever.

I hope I have answered your query. Please post a follow up if you have more questions.

My daughter is 3 years old. We are from Nepal but have been living in Australia for last one year. She has been getting high fever which gets up to 40 C every 15 to 21 days. It was more severe in winter months here, she has had lots of check ups but nothing has been diagnosed. Many times she has had tonisilitis during fever. Now she is in fever but this time her tonsils are not swollen. Fever started from Wednesday 12 January and it is still high. I took her to GP yesterday and was told to wait before medication is given. She has been on penicillian for treating tonsilitis for last every fever. This may be viral fever so we are waiting. How long viral fever can be and what should be done if fever gets very high?
