Maybe reversible: Would ponder that you are dehydrated, and dizziness is due to postural blood pressure drop. Other causes could be included. Perhaps start with increasing your liquid intake. Medications can also cause this. If faintness is associated, contact your physician. Might discuss this more fully here at HT with one of our Concierge physicians.
