Dizziness with the Cold?

Is it normal to feel dizziness and malaise with the cold? I've had to cold before but never with these symptoms. I feel light-headed, drunk-like, and haven't had much energy. Is this normal?

It might just be a variation of the flu. These symptoms usually happen to me when I've been lying down for long periods trying to fight my crappy cold, then I get up too fast. OR...you're not drinking enough and you're dehydrated. Your body needs alot of fluids to fight a cold.

Yes, my dad recently came home from the hospital. He had bronchitis and before I took him in he was acting..drunk! I was really scared for the way he was acting. But is home now and fine. I had never known him or anyone to act that way with a cold/flu. He complained constantly of being dizzy also. Hope you're better now

a sinus or ear infection can cause those symptoms too.
