In brief: Dysfunction

Eustachian tube dysfunction can cause light-headedness.
This could be caused by either too much fluid backing up in the ears and not draining appropriately. Your ears are also responsible for your body's balance and equilibrium and you could have vertigo as well. You would want to make sure that this is fully evaluated to rule out more dangerous causes of dizziness.
