  • It could be an inner ear problem, it could be hormonal (I love it when docs say that!), it could be a million things. I had a bad dizzy problem about 15 years ago and they stuck me in the hospital for tests for 3 days and they never found anything. I had it for months. I hope you feel better quickly.

  • High or low blood pressure can cause that. Along with inner ear infection, any kind of infection in your head, or even the beating pattern in your heart which is my case. I would go see the doctor no matter what the cause they might be able to do something.

  • Go to the doctor to get it diagnosed. If it is an infection you'll want to get it taken care of before it gets even worse. Good luck!

  • I get dizzy spells every now and then. It's like the room spins a little when I lay down, get up after a few minutes, or if I look to the left or right while laying. There are little bones in the ear that will get "nudged" out of place, and it messes with your balance. The condition is called vertigo. Not sure if that's what you're going through, but just to let you know, mine goes away on it's own. It can last anywhere from a few hours/days to weeks/months.
