2 types of dizziness: Assuming one has no fever, there are 2 types of dizziness: one where one feels the world is spinning (vertigo), the other where one simply feels lightheaded. The 1st is usually caused by a problem with the inner ear semicircular canal; an ear/nose/throat doctor can help. For the 2nd, often, simply drinking 1-2 tall glasses of water or Gatorade will raise the BP if a low BP is the cause.
