Possible: I would check your sugar often, write it down & review it with your doctor. It may be that you need additional medication or advise about your food & exercise. You're young so you could use this to step up your diabetes control & live a better quality & healthier life. ...Read more

Frequent headaches for 10 years, 2 weeks tingling in lower legs and arms. Last night dizzy while sitting down. Brain tumor? Or due to stress?

Frequent headaches for 10 years, 2 weeks tingling in lower legs and arms. Last night dizzy while sitting down. Brain tumor? Or due to stress?

Headaches: The headaches for the past 10 years make a brain tumor unlikely. Albeit a small slow growing mass could manifest this way. The dizziness and the tingling in the arms and legs are nonspecific and require a careful history and physical examination. An MRI of the brain and cervical spine may be indicated. A neurologist can help with headaches and better define the cause of the dizziness and tingling. ...Read more

I've been getting dizzy spells quite frequently in the last couple of weeks.  I sit down but the dizziness continues.  I'm a 54 yr old female.  What c?

Exam: You may be suffering from benign positional vertigo, assuming you are not fainting or having any seizures; however, this can also be caused by multiple medical conditions like anemia or hypoglycemia. I strongly suggest a medical examination and you can use OTC DramamineII ( Dramamine-2) to stabilise your inner ear until seen. Please only use as directed: 1 tableet AM/PM ...Read more

Bedrest 4 over a month. No sitting up. Now I'm sitting up & I get swimmy dizzy head that lasts until I lay down again. This normal?

It's common: after a prolonged period of bed rest. You need to start gradually becoming upright & give yourself a chance to adjust. The longer you have been flat, the longer it takes. You will adjust quickly to being upright. Good to hear you are working your way until being up on your feet. Just start slow. Don't sit up fully, just part way, and then wait. And don't stay up too long. Progress from there. ...Read more

Do I have bppv? Dizzy when laying down but only lasted for like and hour or two. The. Nothing and i feel fine. I can move my head and roll over. Bppv?

Prolbably not: Bppv is typically a disease of the elderly. It causes brief dizziness produced by certain head movements. If you have prolonged dizziness, then periods of no dizziness, you have a different cause. At your age, migraine headaches are a possibility. An MRI of the brain is recommended to rule out other causes. ...Read more

Age 16. 2 or 3 times a day, I get dizzy and blurred vision, and sometimes I fall, other times I have to sit down. Lasts around 3-5 seconds?

Age 16. 2 or 3 times a day, I get dizzy and blurred vision, and sometimes I fall, other times I have to sit down. Lasts around 3-5 seconds?

Is it vertigo?: There are many causes of this and there is no substitute for a physical exam and interview by a thorough doctor to help figure this out. When that is not available, you have to consider whether moving your head makes this feeling worse. A common cause of these symptoms is peripheral vertigo. This causes short episodes of symptoms like yours and it often feels worse with certain head movements. ...Read more
