Dizzy and exhausted

My16 yr old son had a headache for a few days then got so dizzy he could do nothing but lie vertically. We had to have an ambulance bring him to the hospital. He was dehydrated from throwing up every tmr he tried to sit or stand up. Now has been in hospital for over two days and can do nothing physical other than lie in the bed. MRI and cat scan are fine. Blood and vitals are good. ENT doctor can find no issues. Trying steroids but do not appear to have an impact.

No sign of any arterial infection. Doctors have contacted CDC with no information that has helped

Any suggestions on next steps? Any prior experience with similar situation?
