I Feel It Too
I just got diagnosed with hypothyroidism and I am sooooo dizzy and have the worst brain fog. Guess what? My diet consists of mostely sugary stuff. I am anorexic and bulimic and purge most of my healthy meals but suck on candy in between meals. So, in essence, I guess most of the calories I do get is in the form of pure sugar. I think that is why we feel the way we do. I tried eating healthier but just get the urge to purge even more cause I get all bloated but candy all day doesn't bloat me. I know if I ate better and kept it in i'd probably not be dizzy but at this point I choose not to. You might want to try eating healthier-it might be what is causing the dizziness.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It will take 1-2 month. I would suggest you anxiolytic and psychotherapy sessions to combat these symptoms.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
