Pharyngitis: Difficulty swallowing is often due to inflammation and swelling of the throat. Do you have fever? Can you get your blood pressure checked? Dizzy feeling often accompanies an infection. If you have a fever and feel worse, an evaluation by a doctor is needed which will include an EKG. Meanwhile drink lots of green tea and water.
