Can you describe what you exactly mean by dizziness? Do you feel lightheaded? Any balance issues? Or does everything around you seem spinning ? Any falls?

Any specific activity or posture when you feel dizzy? Like while getting out of bed or rising from a chair? Or turning your neck to specific direction?

Any other associated symptoms like noise in ears/ ringing? Any hearing issues? Do you feel your movements are well coordinated?
