are you there?

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The dizzy feeling can be due to many reasons.
Fluctuation of blood pressure, glucose can cause it.
Your blood sugar is OK.
Anemia, dehydration can be factors.
On standing from sleeping posture there can be fall of blood pressure.
Heart issues, rhythm abnormalities can lead to the symptoms of dizziness.
It can occur from anxiety or stress or a neurological issues too.
BPPV or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is a common cause for vertigo & dizzy feeling.
It is due to displacement of inner ear crystals.
Repositioning can help to correct it.
I would advise to get an examination by doctor if the symptom continues.
Till then,please try to keep well hydration by taking plenty of fluid.
Anxiety, stress needs to be avoided.
Please remain at rest.I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
