I agree with people saying this is a sinus issue. I had this in January, exactly- down to that dang annoying dizziness. Mine went away within a few days and I didn't see a doc, so I'll give you tips on how to beat it. Lots of chicken noodle soup and LOTS of water. I mean lots, like even more than the daily recommended amount. It helps wash it out of your system and makes your throat feel better. I didn't take any medicine either so I know these two things will help. Plus get some rest and try to stay calm. (:
Actually, I did take one Aleve when I got a sinus headache with it, but that was it. Get better soon!
