Need professional advice for dizzyness and faint abroad!

I have recently moved to Macau, china in the last 2 weeks. For the last 3 days i have felt dizzy and faint all day. I have taken paracetomal and ibruprofen for the last day and drank plenty of water but it wont go away. I literally feel like im drunk the whole time (im not, i only drink a few times a year)

Can anyone help me or give me any advice to make me feel better or tell me what this could be? any help would be greatly appriciated.

    Is there a doctor you can go and see? Would be much better than an internet diagnosis!

    You have only mentioned being dizzy and faint so I wonder why you are taking paracemotol and ibuprofen which are for pain and inflammation. If anything they would make the dizziness worse. You really need to see a doctor. In the meantime consider if you have any other symptoms, and also be specific about the type of dizziness. Is it always there, is it brought on by certain movements, time of day, etc.

    It could be so many different things, and I really think if this is a first time for,this happening you should go and see a GP there.

    I concur with the others, go to a doctor as soon as is reasonably possible.  If you have only an inner ear problem, which should be determined by someone qualified, you may try to return to daily activities, but it could be something much worse, like blood pressure or stroke.  You don't want to mess around waiting and trying other things until you have seen a doctor.  Then, if the doctor says it's not life threatening, try what every you like, lord knows not much helps in relieving the symptoms of inner ear inflamation, so go to the doctor and then look for other help.
