From this study (1 day ago):
I want to know if all of the above taken daily is the cause of my dizziness which gives me no warning, but swoops in an last for a few minutes with a slight headache over the eyes afterward.
I have been to my internalist, cardiologist, 2 dizziness doctors, 2 neurologists, and no one has asked or checked on my medicines. None can tell me why I get dizzy. So I am taking it upon myself to try to find out. All vital signs have been checked and am given a clean bill of health.
