Hello Jennifer Hallinan,
I would definitely find out the reason for this. There are many doctors out there from all nationalities. I would prefer speaking with a female doctor who has gone through menopause, if at all possible. You may get the most from someone who has more experience with this.
You may also want to refer to a registered dietitian.
Until then, please refrain from anything that causes dizziness.
Good luck and please let us know how you all make out.
