Brief Answer:
High blood sugar levels

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
Your blood sugar levels are marginal. You should get a postprandial sugar levels done and tell me if you are taking any medicines.
You should get your blood pressure checked.
The dizziness can be due to low blood sugar levels after exercise or blood pressure changes.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Brief Answer:
Benign positional vertigo

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information
Lifestyle measures are enough to control the marginally high blood sugar levels.
For vertigo, you should do vertigo exercises. As the vertigo is episodic, it is probably positional vertigo and can be managed with exercises.
Send me the reports you have. This will help me to diagnose and suggest you better.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Thanks Doctor !
That is what I am being told by other doctors also ..but I have not been diagnosed at a doctors office with this..but because I was just told about my blood sugar levels...i keep thinking that is the cause of this dizziness.
Does this cause numbness because sometimes .. i feel numbness in my lower jaw maybe for 10 seconds sometimes in my hands ..sometimes in my feet...you know different parts ..but only for short 10 seconds or so..
thank you XXXXXXX
