In brief: No idea

Anything is possible.
"food poisoning" is a very general term and may cover numerous illnesses. What did you eat and when? Who else ate the same foods and are they ill? Do you have any GI symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain). Need more info.

Dizziness can be due to so many things, such as an inner ear problem or benign vertigo. If you aren't nauseated and vomiting, you probably don't have food poisoning.
