hello,
it is not clear by your question if u feel dizzy only when their is a bout of cough or otherwise also, because if it with a bought of cough it is just because of a normal physiological response of the body to persistently increased intrathoracic pressure leading to poor venous return leading to decreased blood supply to the brain. in short your brain is momentarily receiving less blood than required leading to dizziness their is nothing to be alarmed about. but if it persisting without cough also you should see a neurologist.
