Hello!
Welcome on Healthcaremagic!
My name is Dr. Aida and I am glad to attend you!

Your symptoms could be related to orthostatic hypotension or an inner ear disorder.
For this reason, I would recommend consulting with your GP and performing some tests:
- complete blood count
- blood electrolytes
- a Head Up Tilt test for orthostatic hypotension.

If these tests result normal, I would recommend consulting with an ENT specialist to exclude an inner ear disorder.

Hope to have been helpful!
Kind regards!
