Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
There are many causes for these problems. Firstly you should rule out anemia by doing complete blood counts as dizziness and headaches in 21 years is the common presentation in Anemia. Other causes could be hypocalcemia and can be diagnosed by doing blood calcium levels. Other cause for giddiness can be vertigo and this occurs cause of middle year causes and need ENT examination.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
