Feeling dizzy, sharp pain in leg and discoloration on face. CT scan clear. What's wrong?

I have light dizzy spells all the time about a week ago I started having heavy dizzy spells and I get shooting pins and needles running through my legs and had to sit on the ground. I also lost all colouring in my face. I was with a relative who is a nurse the first time it happened and she got me a sugar drink and a banana and i picked up quite quick. I went to my doctors and had a ct scan done which was all clear but now im just wondering what else could be going on?

1st cause might be ANEMIA- loss of coloring on face, dizziness
2nd- cholesteatoma, but it is least likely as you have not reported any ear complains. and if history of ear discharge and/or deafness is there then chance of choleasteatoma is there.

so first get done your Hb level, then complete physical examination by physician, your treatment will decided after it...

if report comes normal then start betahistine (vertin) 16 mg three times per day for 1 wk.
