Expert:  Chandershekhar replied 7 years ago.

The causes of dizziness in you is likley to be due to the high bp which you are having.The BP should be controlled and kept below 140/90 by the use of drugs and taking precautions.

You should take less salt and oil in diet and also avoid smoking.The daily exercise and weight reduction is also advised.

The antihypertensive drugs like atenolol, amlodipine etc may be started if the bp is not controlled.

You should consult the physician/cardiologist for the further follow up.The high bp may also cause heart failure, difficulty in breathing and such symptoms.
