Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. You need a thorough check up to look for the cause of dizziness. Firstly, you should rule out pregnancy by doing urine for pregnancy test in case you have missed your periods. If that is negative, then a peptic ulcer/gastritis should be ruled out. For the same, you will need to undergo an upper GI endoscopy. A low haemoglobin is also one of the common causes of giddiness in women as this can result from excessive menstrual bleeding.

If you have any associated ear pain or ringing in the ears, then you should consult an otolaryngologist also to rule out. Without a physical examination and investigations, it is very difficult to diagnose. I sincerely hope this helps. Take care.
