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.

after sex i very suddenly became light headed, spinning out and dizzy and had to sit down. also had intense lower abdominal pressure and pain/discomfort (during and after sex) and constipated feeling (small possibility of being due to slightly changed eating habits past couple of days). also had a light sweat and felt very hot, but 10 minutes later after it subsided i became very cold and clammy...? i used to get dizzy spells due to low blood pressure but this one lasted about 10 minutes and was much worse.
