Dizzy and numb feet: There are many causes of dizzy spells including medications, illnesses, diabetes, inner ear problems, neurologic problems, dehydration, heat illness, and many more. Numb feet can be caused by nerve injury to the feet, especially diabetes. Other causes are neurologic problems, excessive sensitivity to cold like raynaud's phenomenon, and others. These symptoms should be discussed with your doctor.
