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.

How can I get rid of these issues. Please suggest

For about a month now I have been feeling dizzy and nauseous every day. My 14 year old daughter has been feeling the same way. Two things I thought about were the fact that we homeschool so are home every day. We live in an old house that we rent. It seems that these symptoms have come about since the heat has been on every day and the house is closed up. The second is that we both suffer from anxiety and take medicine for this, but they are different medications.

my wife [53 - Chinese by race, born in Malaysia but now living in Singapore] suffers from dizziness and nausea to the extend of falling over. She is in Singapore hospital right now. She had a MRI scan but it showed NO abnormalities [yes they found a brain - lol]. They taken a blood test and determined that she has a D3 deficiency of 9 while 35 is apparently normal . I spend time this morning on the net but can t confirm her symptoms with D3 deficiency. She takes 6 x 1000mg fish oil capsules a day for the last year [Fish liver oils, such as cod liver oil, 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) provides 1,360 IU (90.6 IU/ml)] She has a 95% Asian diet, very little physical exercise, VERY little exposure to sunlight [tan is NOT hip in Asia]. She is overweight by say 15kg, [plumb but not FAT or obese]. I just like a second oppinion on the symptome versa the diagnosis please. Thank you Helmut Samerski

I am on my second shot of depo. I had no side effects after my first shot. My period stopped within a month with no spotting. Then shortly after my second shot, I started gaining weight consistently, I had spotting randomly at a month in, I have been experiencing fatigue and morning sicknes.
