I'll try to help you and we must go systematically. Your problem may be trivial like something with your eye muscles.. But no. Because you have other symptoms like dizziness and headedness that may indicate a damage in blood circulation. By the way, do you have a low blood pressure?
Especially for lightheadedness is caused by a momentary drop in blood pressure and blood flow to your head. Please,remember this.
Also, allergies, , stress ,anxiety, virus, can lead to these symptoms. Sometimes a bad rhythm of heart can provokes it, like you have mentioned palpitations.
On the other hand, inner ear disorder, injury of head, decreased blood flow to the brain, noncancerous tumors of the brain, or cancer lead to loss of balance status.Here's three quick advice to help yourself for what I said above.
1} Lie down for 2-3 minutes in these cases and slowly standing up.
2 } Drink mineral water with 7,4 and more pH.
3} Drink ginger tea , at least 3 cups on day.
But now , I'm going to tell you what I really think about your situation.
It is true that I thought about blood circulation problems you for sure have,but because you speak about difference in pupil size, I suddenly realized that you may have a neurological problem too. It is matter of direct inspection. So , I strongly recommend you get a MRI analysis.
Unequal pupile, called also Anisocoria, sometimes may be "normal", or caused by external factors,but in companion with headache and palpitation, involves cranial nerves. Causes may be any lesion of the third cranial nerve that leads to dysfunction of oculomotor nerve.
I give you an easy example, carotid dissection can be caused even by minor trauma such as turning the neck and this may leads to ischemia to eyes. Dysfunction of thyroid gland may leads to orbitopathy. I stop here, hoping that you'll follow my advice given from bottom of my heart.
If you can manage to shut out the rest of world, please, don't hesitate to make a few sacrifices for yourself and your family, to leave the misery status
wishing you the best of the best health
