My dizziness started yesterday which is caused by my ongoing TMJD. I get dizzy when I get out of bed and when I go in bed and some position changed while in bed.

No, I only get dizzy for a little bit but quickly resolved until I get up again. When I get up, I slowly get up tiny movement at a time but still get dizzy and stumbling my way out of bed. I'll sit up a little bit at the side of bed until my dizziness stops.

Right now, I'm sitting in bed and I could feel some kind of swinging in my head.

I've been through so much with my TMJD problem, so when this dizziness started yesterday, I just thought that it's one of those scary symptoms. I just reassure myself that it wont kill me. I just tell myself that I've never heard of someone dying of dizziness.

I hope you will find the cause of your dizziness. It is very scary.

Why were you given antibiotics? Antivert works wonders for dizziness (vertigo).

Also visiting an Ear, Nose & Throat doctor would be in order.

Do you have allergies as this can cause dizziness as well.
