You may not be eating enough and therefore have low blood sugar. Best to go to a doctor and have a blood test since it is happening often. If you are on any medication it could be caused by that in and of itself. If you get dizzy and then eat some sugar and it goes away then you have your answer. Please be checked to make sure you are okay.

It could be low blood pressure. Get up slowly and in stages, to give your heart time to adjust.

Every time. No it's not common. Possibly a problem with inner ear. But much more likely a blood condition: extremely low blood pressure, anemia, dehydration. But I'm not a Dr go check them.

To echo a lot of other posters here, go to a doctor and have it checked out. It could be a number of things. Are you stressed about anything in particular? Getting enough sleep? Those things can contribute to dizzy spells.

lets see, your a woman, aged 22-25... more likely than not your low in iron! Go to the doc, he will do a blood test. and if your low, u just take iron supplements. I have low iron and I didn't do anything about it so I became anemic then took a lot longer to get the iron levels back to safe levels. So your better off going sooner rather than later!
