Yes they can: Allergies can interfere with normal nasal and ear function which then causes a problem with a structure known as semicircular canals. These are part of the ear and help tell your brain where your head is located.
Dr. Nayla Mumneh
Allergy and Immunology 29 years experience
Allergies: Allergies can cause dizziness if your nose is congested. You need a nasal spray or see an allergist for adequate control of your allergies.

Allergy to HIV meds: Drug allergies can occur to virtually any medication. The symptoms vary greatly. Rashes are a common sign of drug allergy, but so are joint pains and many other symptoms. Most reactions are side effects and not allergies.

Vasovagal: It sounds like your blood pressure drops when you bend over or cough... In the normal sense the body is reacting more than what it should. Also you might have to get your blood pressure checked to make sure it is not varying significantly in different positions like laying, sitting or standing. Lastly positional vertigo is a possibility.
