Can low blood pressure cause you to feel dizzy with eyes closed when lying down and fine every time else, like bending head side or down. ?

Probably not

Head
If low blood pressure is source of sensation you are calling dizziness, it would usually worse when you are upright. There are certain types of vertigo and disequilibrium that are worse when you have your eyes closed. Consider an evaluation with your PCP about whether your blood pressure is low or other causes for these symptoms.

What causes heart palp., dizziness, diff. breathing while lying down/bending? 30m & no caff.drugs or alc. Norm holter, blood work & stress test.

Multiple reasons

Holter_monitor
if you are not overweight. there could be multiple reasons. the best way however to diagnose this is to have an event monitor (not a holter) in this way will be able to correlate your complaint with what ever the cause is. further recommendations will be based on the results.

Pressure feeling in head and face, gets worse when lying down or bending down.

Orthostatic headache

Face
Orthostatic decrease of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure thus leads to compensatory dilatation of pain sensitive intracranial venous structures which in turn causes orthostatic headache and facial pain/pressure. Rec. see a pain management or orofacial pain specialist for comprehensive evaluation.

When I am lying down or bending over a lump on a vein on the neck from the left side appears. Not seen when standing. Can this be treated?

Usually normal

Veins
When you bend over, there is more pressure on the neck veins so more blood expands them and when you stand back up or lie down, they are smaller. The lump can be checked out by your Doctor but is probably just a variation in the vein wall thickness. We don't do vein treatments of neck veins. People that lift weights and have low body fat can have prominent veins in their necks and arms.

Why does my left neck vein bulge when I'm talking, laughing, lying down, bending down, or just when I'm sitting upright? It's very visible.

Jugular Venous Distension: Most of time is normal in some individuals. The question is whether or not there is something compressing it nearby: Sup. Vena Cava Syndrome or whether or not there is a disease in the heart or lungs that increases the pressure in the venous system (Congestive Heart Failure, Pulmonary Hypertension, Pulmonary Emboli, COPD, lung cancer. Get checked for Lung and heart.

Can neck pain cause vertigo and dizziness when bending head and neck over or to the side? Or when laying down? It's not bppv (as told by my ENT)

Yes

Head
Usually you have inner ear issues but occasionally the vertebral artery can be compressed by spurs in the neck can lead to these symptoms. CT of the cervical spine or MRI would be helpful

Dr. Brian K. Kelly answered:

Weird dizziness when laying down but no dizziness when bending head up back or side. Do you think it's neck related? I don't think it's bppv help

Vertebral artery

Head
If you have neck problems, the cause of dizziness can be benign or related to an interruption of blood flow in the vertebral artery. If this is a new problem, see a Neurologist.

If I lay down longer than 8-9 hours (asleep or awake) I develop a severe headache. Worst when lying down or bending over at the waist. Whole head hurts, but feels worse at back bottom of skull. Advice?

Positional headache

Headaches
Postural headache is usually associated with low intracranial pressure. Headaches with a postural component need to be evaluated to exclude a lesion in the posterior fossa or a condition with low CSF pressure. Rec.: see headache specialist for further investigation.

Why do i have severe low back pain when standing or bending but none at all when sitting or laying down?

Instability

Low_back_pain
It sounds like some form of instability. The spine cannot bear the normal loads of carrying your body when upright (standing) or bending (even higher loads). Sitting and recumbency lowers the stress. You should see a spinal specialist for evaluation and treatment options.
