BPPV?: It sounds like BPPV. This is caused by small stones in the inner ear moving from utricle to semicircular canals where they are not suppose to be. They send false signals to the brain and make you feel dizzy. This can be treatable. See an ent doctor. If you have more questions contact me on my Virtual Practice at www. Healthtap. Com/dryetimyan

I get extremely dizzy and nauseous when I lay on my left side to the point if I wasn't laying down I would pass out. I have neurofibromatosis.

I get extremely dizzy and nauseous when I lay on my left side to the point if I wasn't laying down I would pass out. I have neurofibromatosis.

May be inner ear: Most patients experience some hearing loss with acoustic neuroma which can occur particularly with nf2. However dizziness and nauseous feeling can occur from vertigo that can be related to virus affecting the inner ear. Usually related to laying on affected side. In your case the problem would be on left side. I would see doctor for evaluation and examination.

How come I get dizzy everytime I stand up after sitting or laying down?

How come I get dizzy everytime I stand up after sitting or laying down?

Dizzy standing up: Your blood pressure changes when you stand, but should quickly normalize so that you do not notice. Occasional dizziness may be minor. When you have frequent postural hypotension, this adjustment does not happen as quickly and you notice the drop (dizziness). Your doctor can check your baseline blood pressure and make sure you do not have other issues that may contribute to postural hypotension.

What can cause u to get dizzy like u r on a ship at sea and it only happens when u r laying down and should I be worried about it?

Is it positional?: When you say "get dizzy...and it only happens when u r laying down" do you mean that the feeling comes on when you are lying down from either a seated or standing position? Does it also happen when getting up from a lying position? Sounds like BPPV or "benign paroxysmal positional vertigo." You should touch base with a neurologist to help you.

Orthostatic hypotens: Orthostatic hypotension develops with abrupt getting up from a lying position. You need to make your movements slower and sit on the edge of the bed for a minute before standing, giving your body time to adjust. Also you shoul hydrate yourself well.

As soon as I get up from laying down, I get dizzy and my head start to hurt. Is this normal?

As soon as I get up from laying down, I get dizzy and my head start to hurt. Is this normal?

No: The main thing you worry about here is cardiac issues. I would recommend you have a cardiac workup to be safe. Beyond cardiac, you may have decreased blood pressure when standing, or orthostatic hypotension, still need to be assessed for this. You may be dehydrated as this can mimic many of the same symptoms. Hope that helps!
