Hmm...: Depending on the site in the brain where a potential tumor is... The symptoms can be varied... Often, most tumor are discovered because symptoms are persistent. Dizziness is very non-specific... Vertigo would be more specific. When someone is taking Claritin (loratadine) and sudafed, they can get dizzy

Brain tumor: The extent of the dizziness (imbalance or vertigo) associated with a brain tumor is largely based on the location of the tumor, the type of tumor, and the medications used to treat the symptoms of the tumor. For example, an acoustic neuroma can cause dizziness or imbalance. An elevated Dilantin level to prevent seizures can cause imbalance too. Discuss cause of the symptoms with your neurosurgeon.
