Depends: It depends on the specific cause. Having a tight SCM does not directly cause dizziness, but there are conditions that can cause a tight SCM and dizziness. It is somewhat a generalization, but most dizziness is either middle ear or intracranial related or from a system is cause such as low blood pressure, medication reaction, cardiac source etc. So, primary diagnosis must first be pursued.
