Does mastarbation reduces eyesight and memory or cause dizziness ?I m 20 years old....

Not Likely, But...: I am not aware of any data that suggests those side effects from masturbation per se. That said, talk to your doctor about it as it may represent an underlying issue that gets aggravated from the body's physiological response to masturbation and orgasm. I hope that helps! -- dr. Z (the healthy mind). ...Read more

BPV Benign Vertigo: We have 3 small "stones" on each side of our head. They float in c-shaped tubes or canals. These canals are lined with fine hairs which then transmit the position to our brain. These stones and tubes act like the bubbles on a level a carpenter uses. If a stone "sticks" then conflict arises in our brain which makes us dizzy. Sounds like one stone on one side is the culprit. ...Read more

Ive been using tabacco for years. Lately smoking is causing me to get extremely dizzy, for years i hardly felt the effects. Chew does not cause this.

Ive been using tabacco for years. Lately smoking is causing me to get extremely dizzy, for years i hardly felt the effects. Chew does not cause this.

Smoking MANY years?: Really, MANY years? And you're only 17 years old? That's impressive but you're really playing with fire...or in this case, TOBACCO of dangerous proportions. The symptoms you're describing may have something to do with the smoking or may not. If the dizziness comes on consistently immediately smoking or shortly thereafter and clears when you stop then, it's the tobacco. You need to see a doctor. ...Read more

I am diabetic 5 years & facing dizziness from noon everyday till night for 1 year. I take Novomix 30, no oral medicine. Does Diabetes cause dizziness?

Diabetes can cause..: ...dizziness but it's generally not quite as specific with the hour it starts as you've mentioned unless NOON is when you wake up every day and perhaps you don't sleep until midnight...in which case you're saying that you're "dizzy" the whole time you're awake. Are your sugars under good, fair, or poor control when you check? You should check with your doctor on this as other things can be afoot. ...Read more

Two years ago, i got severe dizziness when i woke up morning from bed and then i stand and i saw the whole room rotates in a circular motion and fast.

Dizziness: If this was a one time event it is likely that you had some pressure on your inner ear, generally caused by pressure in the middle ear arising from a clogged eustacian tube that is caused by dysfunction of that tube or congestion usually from allergies.Many times holding the nose closed with the fingers and gently blowing opens it.If you still have the symptoms ask your doctor about epley maneuver. ...Read more

I just found out I have chylmydia. Im pretty sure i had it for years now. My WBC and platlet were high and I have been dizzy. Could this be the cause?

I just found out I have chylmydia. Im pretty sure i had it for  years now. My WBC and platlet were high and I have been dizzy. Could this be the cause?

Probably not: Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease and is often discovered on pap smears or blood test however many women do not even know they have chlamydia. Chlamydia often is found in association with trichomonas. It can cause a gray watery discharge but would not elevate the white count and platelets and cause dizziness there maybe other reasons for this if it is a severe infection the white count could be affected but in general it is a local problem that can be easily treated with antibiotics. ...Read more
