Orthostatic hypotens: What you have, is an autonomic cardiovascular dysfunction which is also known as orthostatic hypotension.

Bp drop: By being down so long your body adjusts your blood pressure lower. Then, when you stand up, your pressure drops low enough that you have the symptoms. Try sitting at the bedside for a minute before standing.

No matter what I get dizzy when I stand up. My vision goes black and I almost collapse every time. What's going on with me?

No matter what I get dizzy when I stand up. My vision goes black and I almost collapse every time. What's going on with me?

Go to your doctor: It sounds as if you have orthostatic hypotension (low blood pressure with standing). The dizzy feeling is due to the fact that you are about to faint. The vision is going black because you are temporarily not getting enough blood to allow visual system to work. You should see your primary doctor very quickly.

Anxiety, Dizziness: I commend you for your concern for health. I understand your anxiety.

I occasionally get dizzy especially in summer for no reason and I get blurred sight or even worse I get a dark vision and I can't see a thing?

I occasionally get dizzy especially in summer for no reason and I get blurred sight or even worse I get a dark vision and I can't see a thing?

Possible migraine: Your symptoms suggest a possible variant of migraine headaches. Are the vision changes bilateral or just in one eye? Do you have any headache associated with your symptoms? There is no way to actually make any kind of diagnosis here without a thorough exam. I suggest you see your primary care doctor and have a complete eye examination, preferably with an ophthalmologist, who is an MD.

When I stand up sometimes I get really dizzy & there's this weird tingling feeling that covers my body then my vision starts to go black & I fall why?

When I stand up sometimes I get really dizzy & there's this weird tingling feeling that covers my body then my vision starts to go black & I fall why?

A few reasons.: Standing up fast will leave your blood at your feet and away from your brain. So try to stand up a little slower. If you have heavy period you may be a bit anemic which could contribute. Finally you must keep up with your hydration or this will repeat. If all else fails give your doctor a call.

Low blood sugar: Your symptoms could be the result of low blood sugar or just a low calorie intake. Not eating enough during the day can definitely cause these symptoms. You can become nutrient deficient. Also, if you aren't drinking enough water these symptoms can occur. Make sure you are getting enough calories and eating a variety of healthy foods.

I have been experiencing dizziness, slight headaches and vision loss for a few seconds right after I get up. What could this be?

Blood Pressure chang: Commonly blood pressure changes occur with changes in posture. You should make sure to be well hydrated and check your blood pressure and heart rate in different seated or standing positions. Sometimes during periods of rapid growth, there is an abnormal response called POSTURAL ORTHOSTATIC TACHYCARDIA (POTS) or alternatively ORTHOSTATIC INTOLERANCE, or Neurally Mediated Hypotension. See your doc.

For the past few weeks my skin will get itchy and red with bumbs. When this occurs my vision becomes somewhat blurry with dizziness.?

Probably: Not directly related. The skin symptoms sound like hives. The vision symptoms sound like a vaso vagal reaction. Without a thorough exam, it would be difficult to tell online.

Sounds like POTS: It sounds like you suffer from POTS (Paroxysmal Orthostatic Hypotension Syndrome). There are many possible causes. See http://www. Dinet. Org/index. Php/information-resources/pots-place/pots-overview and http://www. Dinet. Org/index. Php/information-resources/pots-place/pots-causes Ideally find a holistic doctor to assess and treat.

Get about 7 1/2 hrs sleep/night. I get days I am extremely tired & whenever I am tired, my vision blacks out often & I feel dizzy a lot. Is this normal?

NO: This is not normal. You should see your doctor to get checked to make sure you are not anemic or have a cardiac problem or other causes of dizziness such as neurological or otherwise. Best of luck and please do not ignore this.
