Hello from JustAnswer.
How long have you had the dizziness?
Have you noticed anything that makes the dizziness better or worse?
For example, is the dizziness worse when your nerves are worse?
How much weight have you lost Over what period of time?
Have you had any evaluation for the dizziness or weight loss?
What medicines are you taking, either for these symptoms or for other medical problems?
I had asked for additional information and have not heard back.
The most common cause of dizziness and a swimming sensation of short duration is from inflammation of the inner ear, frequently from a viral infection. There are many other conditions to consider if there have been symptoms for a longer period of time.
At present, it may help to use an over the counter medicine, meclizine, which is primarily marketed for motion sickness, but also can help ease symptoms from inner ear inflammation.
