Are you having those for 2 days only?

Do you feel spinning sensation?

Do you take any medicine?

Did you have any test recently?

Do you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

had the dizziness about a year ago. lasted 4-5 day and was ok. had it again this past july. also lasted about 4-5 days. latest session started yesterday norning- monday oct 10-this time seems a little worse. maybe i'm constipated from what I ate. I'm a heart patient. I take 81mg aspirin, metoprolol 25mg, simvastatin 20 mg, and trilipix 135 mg for triglycerides. haven't had any tests lately. I did trrow up last night. no previous illness.
Thank you for the information,

The dizziness can be due to different factors.

There may be dehydration, loss of fluid, fall or changes of blood pressure, low glucose etc .

It can be the symptom of a neurological cause like stroke, or bleeding, cerebellar diseases.

It may also occur from anxiety or stress.

Anemia or electrolyte changes can also be factors.

Heart issues like low ejection, heart attacks, rhythm abnormalities can cause it.

In some cases there can be feeling of vertigo from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or labyrinthitis or inner ear problems.

I feel you should get an examination by doctor when you are having repeated attacks.

Doctor can then decide about tests after the clinical examination.

Pl take plenty of fluid to keep good hydration, adequate rest.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
