Without further medical evaluation, the dizziness could be indicative of several problems. If you have had a recent cold or ear infections, this can cause dizziness. Dizzines can be also be a symptoms of many different neurologica disorders such as MS (Multiple Sclerosis). Typically MS is seen in young woman. It could be something very benign related to your inner ears or be a condition called BPPV benign parozysmal positional vertigo. In either event, you should be evaluated my a physician.
