What causes dizziness and headache?

Hi I have been having head aches and dizziness on and off for 8 months now. The dizziness is hard to describe I am not dizzy where I can t waLk I just feel dizzy but I m not weird I know. I just started wearing the invisalign braces 10 months ago. Could this be from that or is it a tumor?

Hello,

First of all, you should measure your blood pressure and if it were high, you should take the anti-hypertensive drug and do an ECHO on your heart to assess the ejection fraction.

Second, if you are a woman, you should know that the dose of the oral contraceptive pills or the hormonal replacement needs to be adjusted with a gynacologist.

Third, you could do a CT brain to ensure that you do not have a focal brain lesion. The invisalgin braces cannot cause dizziness, but if they caused infection in your mouth, they could cause a headache.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dr/Mustafa, Neurologist
