Could dizziness be a sign of heart disease ?

i've had blood tests for anaemia, thyroid function, kidney function, cholesterol level - the doctor said my platelet level was slightly high but nothing to worry about -is that true or should i insist on more tests? some days i'm not dizzy at all other days i feel as if i may fall over.
