This can be a serious problem and you need to have someone drive you to the ER.

For example:

Inner ear infection.


Heart rhythm problem


Medication effects

Nervous system dysfunction

Benign vertigo.

And other more rare causes....some very serious.

Any new dizziness needs immediate exam, testing and treatment based on exam and testing.
