Neurologist 's  Response
The reeling of head may be caused by problem with organs that are responsible for maintaining balance. These organs are cerebellum, inner ear and posterior columns. Your symptom is more likely to be due to problem with the first two. Since you are hyertensive and a patient of IHD so the chances of minor strokes are high in you. You need to undergo evaluation by a neurologist and subsequently MRI scan of the brain will be needed.
Depending on the cause found you will be started on treatment.
Good luck.
