Please see your doc: Good Morning, Im sorry you're feeling ill. Your dizziness, nausea and vomiting could be caused by an issue with the ear such as a middle or inner ear infection or something more serious such as a growth on the nerve of hearing and balance.It is important to see a doctor for an examination to rule out infection and other possible causes and get appropriately treated.
