It is possible: that your relaxing bath is lowering your blood pressure and when you get up you feel dizzy. Check w/your doc to be sure. Peace and good health.

Different reasons: There could be different reasons for this symptom. You may be relaxing in the tub causing your heart rate & blood pressure to drop which when you suddenly stand to get out of the water causes a pooling of blood in your legs and perhaps coupled with a change in temperature from the tub to the air makes you dizzy. There could be other causes. Monitor closely- check with your doctor if it persists

Tinted glasses: Until you can do something more definitive try sunglasses for yourself. If appropriate you could see about getting tinted glass to cover the light fixture. See if your employer would consider a dimmer switch. If you are overly sensitive to the light compared to your colleagues you might want an eye exam to make sure it is not something going on with the eyes www.Medac4u.Com.

Stop taking the meds: If the diagnosis was made by a primary care physician or urgent care and she is taking antivert/meclizine... She should stop the medication which can prolong recovery. If she is continuing to have symptoms, she should see an ENT and get a "balance test" (eng) to confirm the diagnosis. She may also need an mri.

?ear infection: Our inner ears are often the cause of a "vestibular" cause of dizziness. With a fever, you may have an inner ear infection, that is affecting your balance center. See you dr. For an eval, good luckl.

Why do I feel tired and dizzy if I skipped a meal?

Dr. Robert Kwok

Doctor can check : A primary care doctor can check to see why a person would be tired and dizzy after skipping a meal. Healthy, normal people can have mild such symptoms from skipping meals, with the "dizziness" due to not having enough fluids to drink. Significant symptoms may be related to low blood sugar due to not eating. The doctor will need a complete diet diary and symptom diary, plus some usual blood tests.

Does lazanopam help with dizziness!?

Maybe: There is no cure for dizziness. Serious disorders of the ears or brain need to be excluded. Then a trial of treatment is reasonable. Any treatment may improve the condition, do nothing, or make it worse. The only answer comes with trial and monitoring effects.
