Standing up and feeling breathless and dizzy vision is blurred. Had been going on for 2wks ald. Cause of this and possible steps to take?

Get a medical exam: These symptoms could be a sign of many conditions from heart problems to anemia.

This is similar to standing up too fast and feeling lightheaded and getting dim vision briefly (orthostatic hypotension). Get a medical exam to get all possibilities checked! ...Read more

I am virgin, 22, having vericocele and feeling heavy pain on the bowls. I have visions. I don't want to get married like doctor said. What should I do?

New Doctor: Marriage is not a treatment for scrotal pain or 'heavy' bowels. I am sorry but beyond that your question is difficult to answer. There is no medical term that is easily defined by the word "heavy bowels". That statement is so ambiguous that I cannot comment on.

It can happen when dehydrated or when normal compensatory mechanisms are not functioning. ...Read more
