Depends on type: If your dizziness feels like you or the room is spinning, that could be an inner ear problem which may only last 1-3 days, but if more of a fainting feeling that could be dehydration/low blood count/stroke/heart issue so would be best to call Dr for advice on evaluation. Knowing your blood pressure & pulse rate is helpful. Do NOT drive yourself to Dr /ER when dizzy! Have family or friend take you
