There are many different causes for dizziness, ranging from low blood pressure to inner ear disease to compromised blood flow to the brainstem. Based on the type of dizziness you are having, your PCP will be able to narrow down possible causes and determine an optimal course of treatment.

Why im so dizzy?

Causes of Dizziness

Look my previous answers. Check all medicines. Make sure your circulation of Vertebral and Carotid arteries is ok. If you have issues with your ears is most likely related to that (neuronitis o laberintitis or Benign Positional Vertigo or Menieres Disease). Get good hydration drinking fluids unless contraindicated. Do not expose to the sun. Make sure heart is ok. There are many dizzyness w/o cure.

Sweat a lot & dizzy?

Can be many things

Open-uri20120810-11413-e6rt9o
Why a person, who was ok before, would start to sweat a lot and get dizzy, has many possibilities. It could be anemia, low blood pressure, being out of shape, having had a heart attack (sometimes people have a heart attack but don't know it), heart failure, thyroid imbalances, lung disease, various cancers, effects of medications, etc... It means a visit to one's doctor to check for disorders.

How to stop dizzyness?

Some thoughts

Vertigo
How to stop dizziness depends on the cause. If you are dehydrated - then it would be important to hydrate well with water. If you get dizzy after going from lying to sitting or standing, then it would be important to take your time and do this slowly. If this is a chronic problem - it warrants medical evaluation. Take care.

Dizziness after eating?

Several poss. causes

Open-uri20130121-3316-htwefd
Dizziness after eating can be associated with a number of medical issues, most commonly postprandial hypoglycemia, where blood sugar levels drop after eating. Other causes include postprandial hypotension (low blood pressure after a meal), kidney or thyroid disease, and gastritis or reflux. There are others but this is a good place to start. I would rec. a visit to your doctor for further tests.

Does TMJ cause dizziness?

IT CAN

Logo_jb_2
A TMJ/TMD issue can create ear problems and dizziness. I would first consult with an ENT Dr. and let them determine if the problems stem from a specific ear ailment. You may have both TMJ and ear issues.
