Blood flow: When you stand up, there can be a temporary decreased in blood flow to the brain. The blood vessels have to tighten up a little bit, and the heart has to pump a little harder. Getting dizzy or light-headed when standing up is called orthostatic hypotension. The first step to try to make this better is to drink plenty of fluids.

Motor and non-motor: The classic symptoms of parkinson disease are related to movement- tremor in the hands when they are resting; slowness (bradykinesia); stiffness (rigidity); and balance problems (postural instability). There can also be many non-motor symptoms such as depression, memory problems, and insomnia. I recommend seeing a neurologist, particularly a movement disorders specialist.

Headache prevention: Depakote (valproic acid) is one of several medicines that can reduce the intensity and frequency of headaches (including migraines) when taken on a regular basis. Stopping the medicine could cause a re-emergence of prior headaches.

Brain injury: If the brain does not get enough oxygen, a lot of problems can occur, such as dizziness, memory loss, seizures, and unconsciousness. If the brain is deprived of oxygen for a prolonged period of time, permanent damage can occur and is called anoxic (or hypoxic) brain injury. Someone with this condition is usually very sick and may be in a coma.

Stress/ immobility: Anything that stresses the body, such as physical illness, mental stress, or the strain of surgery, can worsen RLS and other movement disorders. You may also not be able to move around as easily due to the hip surgery. The worsening will hopefully be transient, but discuss with your doctor adjusting your medicines if the symptoms persist.
A 41-year-old female asked:
Dr. Aaron Haug

Nerve problem: Shooting pains up and down the legs are often related to irritated nerves. This is also known as sciatica. Bulging discs in the lower back (lumbar spine) can be the cause of this sometimes.

Possible: It is definitely possible. Ocular migraines have been reported in children as young as 2 years old. A thorough eye examination should be performed to exclude other possibilities.
