I have been having dizzy spells the last few days, they have been coming and going. I can remember having dizzy spells from time to time and mostly from allergies when I ears would get stuffy and my nose would be a little stuffy. But for some reason I cant make my mind believe it is from allergies this time. My tummy has also been feeling yucky from the antibiotics the doc put me on after getting my wisdom teeth taken out.
I also got messed up with my lexapro and forgot to take it while I was laid out in pain from taking the wisdom teeth out.
So do you think it could be from not taking my meds?? From the antibiotics??? from the allergies???
Or should I be freaking out on panic mode about what strange illness I might have????

Thank ahead of time ya'll

Honestly, it could be every single one of those things. Probably not a strange illness, though. Just allergies, forgetting your meds, wisdom teeth recovery, antibiotics (often make people a little queasy).

A couple of weeks ago I had not a real sinus infection, but inflamed ones due to allergies. I got kinda dizzy at times. Anxiety will also cause dizziness. I haven't experienced that too much, but I hear of it a lot on here. Occam's Razor or whatever: the simplest answer is most likely the correct one.

I agree with Debaser re the probable causes. Don't freak out, no no,  not good. I hope it gets better quickly.

If you find that it does not improve, don't freak out but give your physician a call. :)

Take Care.

I too suffered from a horrible dizzy spell yesterday evening while walking with my husband. I had one so bad I had to stop him and grab ahold of him to keep from falling. I swayed way to the right. I have had a problem with major stuffiness in my head and headaches and teeth aches and some pressure and a little aching in my ears for over a week now. We were down in Florida at the beach for a week through last Saturday and took several dips in the gulf and slept in a bed where the air from the vent was blowing down full upon us and between that and riding in the car with the air full blast I stayed stuffed up and had several come and go sore throats, and came home with it. I am just hoping that it is that and not heart related as women have dizziness with heart disease. But considering my entire head has pressure and is stopped up I am assuming it is sinus and allergy problems.

It also could be from your teeth alone.  I was adopted and my biological mother took drugs while she was pregnant with me, which left no enamel on my teeth.  I have had serious dental work over the years and sometimes I don't think people realize what having dental work done can effect.  You actually have sinuses (so I am told) that run from your face to the back of your neck and shoulder.  Plus alot of times if you are in the dentist chair with your mouth wide open you can have muscle spasms etc, I have had this as well as the dizzy spells after dental work.  Also, sometimes takes a few days for the sleepy drugs to exit your system, also a possible cause for the dizzy spell.  Good luck and I hope you feel better.
