Many causes!: Dizziness has many possible causes, some minor, some serious. It could be a medication side effect, an ear infection, lack of fluid or food intake, a serious problem in your brain. Without more details it is impossible to narrow it down. If you have constant dizziness get seen right now. If you have intermittent dizziness but it has lasted more than two days, get seen. Don't drive.
