By dizzy you mean?: People use the term differently but classically dizzy refers to the spinning sensation, usually associated with nausea, that occurs when the balance organs in the inner ear are disrupted like when you would purposely spin as a kid until you couldn't walk a straight line. Called vertigo. We test for it by dropping the head of bed down with neck rotated and watching for specific eye movements.

Ekg, BP, CT or MRI: The symptom of dizziness may be from a circulation problem, a heart problem or a neurologic problem. Your Doctor may check your blood pressure in different positions to see if the dizziness is from blood pooling in the lower part of the body, he will check your heart with an ekg. The tests for neurologic problems would involve some king of imaging or the brain including, MRI or Ct scan.

Doctor can check : A primary care doctor can check to see why a person would be tired and dizzy after skipping a meal. Healthy, normal people can have mild such symptoms from skipping meals, with the "dizziness" due to not having enough fluids to drink. Significant symptoms may be related to low blood sugar due to not eating. The doctor will need a complete diet diary and symptom diary, plus some usual blood tests.

Maybe: There is no cure for dizziness. Serious disorders of the ears or brain need to be excluded. Then a trial of treatment is reasonable. Any treatment may improve the condition, do nothing, or make it worse. The only answer comes with trial and monitoring effects.

Specialist: Suggest seeing a neurologist and a Ear-Nose-Throat specialist. Dizziness could be caused by an inner ear problem or by a nervous system problem.
