The dizziness or feelig weak or fainting may be due to many reasons. There may be dehydration , loss of fluid or fall of blood pressure . Heart rhythm abnormalities may also lead to the attacks of dizziness or faintness. It may also occur from anxiety or stress or any neurological cause. When you are getting it relieved by taking sweet foods or drinks it can be due to hypoglycemia or low blood glucose or dehydration. Take adequate fluid to keep good hydration. Avoid excess caffeine & alcohol. .You should have an examination by doctor too & do some tests to find out the precise cause.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your early recovery.
