Waking up everyday feeling faint, giddy, lightheaded and shaky- is this hypoglycemia? I'm an otherwise healthy female! Thanks.

Some thoughts..

Sugar
What you're describing can be caused by dozens of things: blood pressure, blood sugar, thyroid, hormone changes with pregnancy. I've had patients really concerned about low blood sugar with symptoms of lightheadedness. I tell them if they have a glass of orange juice and the symptoms go away, it could be the sugar. Some people will even check their sugars with a glucometer. Best of luck!

Lightheadedness, unbalanced, feeling of unreality. what could cause this?

Stress hormones

Stress
These are common symptoms of anxiety/panic due to the stress hormones/adrenaline of the fight or flight response. A psychologist trained in CBT can teach you emotional self-help skills to control this response.

I'm feeling really dizzy, I smoke cigarettes, could that be causing my lightheadedness?

What type of cigs?

Open-uri20130909-18801-u27wd1
Nicotine cigarettes don't usually cause dizziness, but could since nicotine provides a stimulant brain effect increasing BP and heart rate. Other types of cigarettes like cannabis could certainly cause dizziness. Even e-cigs can have weird effects with the vaporized substances in them. Bottom line: why smoke anything at all? Best to see your doctor to evaluate your dizziness & light-headedness

Arrthymia

Pounding_heartbeat
The carotid arteries on each side of the neck are the ones that throb with a rapid heart beat. Your dizziness with it is concerning. It may be a hot flash if you are perimenopausal, but I would call the doctor anyhow to check into any possible cardia problem

Sudden feeling of lightheadedness and weakness, BP 119/74, Pulse 111. Should I be worried? Possible causes?

Dehydrated?

Lightheadedness
You may just be volume depleted, particularly if your light headedness occurred when you stood up. Drink extra non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic liquids. If your symptoms persist, see your doctor to get evaluated.

Dr. Vanja Kondev answered:

Light headedness due to switching from 10 mg to 20 of paxil? Fourth day of 20 and its still strange feeling.

Paxil

Paxil
Changes in standing blood pressure are common with Paxil. In most cases it does improve in the first week after a dose change. If it persists please consult with your physician. Change in dose or a different antidepressant might me considered at that time.

why does anxiety case lightheadedness and offbalance feeling i take 20mg of celexa but still get this feeling?

40 mg may help

Psychotherapy
Celexa maximum dose is 40 mg daily. Doses greater than 40 mg are associated with serious cardiac and other side effects: and do not improve your response. You might consider a consultation to evaluate the medicine and perhaps adding psychotherapy ...the best approach
