Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Sleep deprivation can cause dizziness commonly.Chronic sleep deprivation can cause tiredness, lack of attention, poor performance in addition.Dehydration is another common cause of dizziness.Inner ear inflammation known as acute labyrinthitis is another possibility--which is a benign cause and resolves over time.Other causes include high or low blood pressure, high blood sugar, heart arrythmias.So likely benign, but better to see your doctor also for clinical evaluation.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for asking further questions!This is the link to my profile:
