Hmm - can you clarify further what you have found just to clear this up... and to put my mind at ease.
When I get dizzy, I also get nystagmus (also known as 'dancing eyes'), which is involuntary - so are you saying this is likely the withdrawal? I had the same thing when I had my seizures coming off the duloxetine.
For the most part, it is not dizziness (as the in the vertigo sense) it is an intense headACHE, the odd zap or what feels like too much pressure in the head. The dizziness which the doctor thought was labyrinthitis dissipated, and aside from last weekend, has not returned.
But I am interested to know what these articles suggest...

My concern is that if the dizziness you experience id a side effect of the Citalopram then down the road you might have to consider a different AD. (God forbid)

That is a very strange hypothesis.
Given that I had all the dizziness and such when I was on the Lexapro, then did a 10mg CT, albeit with the citalopram, it was quite a jump. I think I am just going through a very unfortunate withdrawal. Even when the Citalopram reaches full level, there is likely to still be some residual effects.
I was fine on Citalopram for 12 years, so I hope it has not turned on me. The thought of having to find something else is horrific. If that were the case, I would opt for amino acids/supplements. I just don't think my brain can take any more meds.
