Dizziness is a reaction to movement and is associated with vertigo. Is light headedness and occurs when the body, eyes and inner ear send different messages to the brain at the same time.
It can also be a result of the brain not enough blood. It usually manifests with: partial loss of vision or double vision, loss of coordination, numbness, slurred speech, weakness, ringing in the ears, vomiting, and general confusion.
Both at the same time
One can trigger the other interchangeably. And treating one can heal another.
A headache with dizziness can be symptoms of a head injury, a muscle trauma in the neck, earache, mouth problems and jaw exhaustion or prolonged sun exposure.
If they are also associated with fatigue, it is likely that the person suffers from anemia: decreased red blood cells which prevents proper distribution of oxygen to the cells.
Also, they can trigger migraine symptoms or be the same: it is a severe headache that can last more than 72 hours. People suffer from migraine when there is a sudden change in serotonin levels (lowered or increased), consume certain types of beverages, foods or chemicals or suffer from depression.
What to do to relieve the symptoms?
Barring any trauma, injury or infection, the first thing is make sure to rest properly. A cool, dark, quiet room can sometimes be more powerful than an analgesic.

- Drink plenty of water to keep your body well hydrated.
- Place a cool cloth on your head.
- Use relaxation techniques.
- Avoid sudden changes in posture.
- Get up slowly and sit for a few moments before standing.
- When standing, make sure you have something to cling.
We can find relief in herbal medicine. Some recommended teas are:
- Willow Bark decoction of 30 g per liter of water for 25 minutes (avoid allergic to aspirin)
- Melisa Infusion: 1 cp of dried plant per cup of water
- Infusions of relaxing plants like chamomile, Tila, Hops and Lavender
