I am suffering from dizziness and nausea

In the last couples days I have been having random bouts of both dizziness and nausea , with no real explanation. I did recently change my diet, though not drastically. I am a pescatarian and have recently started watching my carb count and eating less of them. I also donate plasma, though this has never affected things before. I am 21, female, and am not taking any medications save for my implant birth control Implanon. Would there be any explanation for this?

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your Symptoms suggest Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Kindly get yourself examined by a ENT Specialist to rule out BPPV. If it is confirmed you may require anti vertigo medications and epley maneuver. If not BPPV, you may want to get yourself examined by a Neurologist to rule out any Neurological cause for this. Avois stress and get adequate rest.

Wish you Good Health and Take Care.
