You need to see: a Gastroenterologist! There are a number of newer motility drugs which may help. Physicians with up to date knowledge (Gastroenterologists) will have the information!

A 21-year-old member asked:
Is my dizziness the result of ear infections or dental infections?

Probably not.: Many (most?) cases of dizziness in adults are not related to infection. As an ENT doctor, i often see dizzy patients that have been misdiagnosed elsewhere with ear infections (otitis media). With that said, ear infections and some sinus infections can indeed cause dizziness; dental infections should not cause dizziness. The best way to be sure is to see an ENT doctor.

A 34-year-old member asked:
I have a cancerous growth in my upper right lung. I had a biopsy on it and it came back benign. What could this mean?

Uncertain: A cancerous growth cannot be benign. It sounds like they found a lung nodule and biopsied it. If the doctor told you it is benign, then you need not worry. I would check back with your doctor.

A 38-year-old member asked:
What could cause fatigue, weight loss, anaemia, pelvic pain & dizzyness?

Consider tumor.: Weight loss and anemia can contribute to both fatigue and dizzyness. The question is is the anemia related to the pelvic pain. Hypothetically the answer is yes. Tumors of the sigmoid colon, rectum, bladder, uterus ovaries or prostate can cause anemia and the related symptoms although high on the list are colorectal cancers. See your md for possible colonoscopy and/or ct scan of the pelvis.
