Reason For Vertigo After Laying Down With Eyes Closed
Can Mucinex (guaifenesin) D or major anxiety cause a feeling of dizziness when laying down with eyes closed? Had MRI and vestibular testing and normal.
It is possible that anxiety can cause symptoms of dizziness, but Mucinex (guaifenesin) probably would not.
It is helpful that your tests were ok, that eliminates a lot of causes.
Perhaps not it is time to get some therapy for your anxiety and some PT exercises for your dizziness. ...Read more

Last two weeks, feeling faint when I'm trying to get up from laying down, having problems concentrating, and sometimes vertigo while turning my head. During vertigo my eyes gloss over and I black out.

Dizziness, head hot and tingly, sensations moving down to upper chest and back. It's very hot, yet I have no fever. When eyes closed: room spins. Help?
Vertigo?: If you experience rotatory movement of the environment around you or you around the environment and/or feel as if the floor is coming up to meet you when you look down this suggests an abnormality in your semicircular canals (part of middle ear), or cerebellum. You should see a neurologist or ENT doctor and get evaluated. ...Read more

Tapering Valium down to 1mg and getting "dizzy" feeling. Like being pushed to one side or eyes not in sync with body. Not vertigo. Is this normal?
Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, valium tapering should be done under supervision because withdrawal from sedatives can lead to seizures, even fatal ones.
Valium is, however, one of the easier drugs to taper due to its relatively long half life.
The symptoms you describe are not typical. Could be serious withdrawal cannot say. ...Read more

Woke with this weird sensation in my head. Like my head was double the size. Pain when moing eyes and dizziness. Settled down now, what could this be?
Get checked if it...: Recurs. This sounds like meningeal irritation, but the cause isn't specific, could be dehydration, viral cold (headache but not life threatening), migraine (meningeal inflammation is a normal part of migraine). Start with drinking lots of fluids, not oversleeping (8-10 hours of sleep is healthy), and avoid rebound headache (using only-as-needed migraine meds every day). Good luck! ...Read more
I've had dizziness for about 2 days now and it only occurs when I look up or down or when I just move my eyes up or down what could it be?
Look straight!: You may have and overly active oculovestibular reflex. Often when people look up and down, side to side, they have no problem, because they're doing it slowly. So you may want to look up and down, side to side, do so slower to avoid dizziness. Then if it's a problem and you're having issues with vision, you need to see an eye doctor. Otherwise, talk with your PCP first. ...Read more

See your doctor about having a monitor placed to tell what is going on when you feel bad. ...Read more
My son is 24 and he's been having pressure under eyes, nose, one nostril clogged, dizziness, and heavy head and pressure going down in neck. Any clue?
Sinusitis: The symptoms are pretty consistent with a viral sinusitis. I can not explain the pressure going down the neck. If the symptoms get worse after 5 days or not better after 10 days, you son should be placed on an appropriate antibiotic. Also consult and ENT doctor for a specific diagnosis. ...Read more
What would cause a feeling of vertigo for just a split second with eye movement up or down? Seems happen when scrolling on phone. MRI clear. ENT clear.
Imbalance: Sounds like you may have an imbalance in the semicircular canals which are activated by eye movements. The brain will be activated then, in an asymmetric fashion making your brain think that you're spinning in a certain direction. A neurologist or Neuro-ophthalmologist can help you. Important to figure out what's CAUSING those eye movements as well. ...Read more

Vertigo, painful lipoma (calf), burning nerve sensation (off/on) leg, numbness in face around eye (left). Rash behind ear down neck.
Downward presure in head, crawling senstaion in brain, some stabbing pain in eye or ear, light headed, off balance, dizziness?
Odd Sensations: I recommend consulting your medical doctor to be sure there is no physical cause for odd physical symptoms such as dizziness, feeling off balance, pain in the eye or ear, pressure in your head. If no clear diagnosis emerges, consult a licensed psychotherapist to rule out and work with underlying anxiety. Rapid, shallow, anxious breathing can cause similar symptoms. ...Read more

No: Sleep is a beautifully orchestrated, highly conserved, complex body function with several brain systems working in concert. It is a vital restorative process that among other things helps with memory consolidation, metabolic function, immune competence, and growth. Quiet rest does not achieve the same brain state as sleep. Sleep is just as important as diet and leading a non-sedentary lifestyle. ...Read more
I have been having bouts of vertigo, other than bppv what could it be? Also my eyes don't move when this happens.
Vertigo: Eye movements and the inner ear are connected inside the brain. Many of these connections originate in the brainstem. Thus, it makes sense that some vertigo is associated with abnormal eye movement. Check with your local ENT doctor and ophthalmologist soon for a complete examination. ...Read more

BPPV: There are 2 possibilities. Benign positional vertigo (BPPV) which is caused by loose calcium carbonate crystals of the inner ear. Or if when you look up, you are extending your neck, this may be cervical vertigo which is completely different. BPPV is an otological problem and cervical vertigo may be a muscle or cervical disc problem. ...Read more
I've been having a spinning sensation when I move too fast, when my eyes move- sometimes just randomly when I'm still. Am I experiencing vertigo?
Unfortunately yes: Vertigo refers to an illusion of movement which is what you describe. The most common cause of vertigo is inner ear disease brought about by a viral infection (labyrinthitis), head trauma (benign positional vertigo, postconcussive syndrome), or meniere's disease (triad of vertigo, tinnitus, and sensorineural hearing loss). Please see your doc for further guidance on the proper diagnosis and rx. ...Read more
What causes vertigo when immediately I opened my eyes at morning and disappeared with closing. It has repeated several times until got out of bed.
You're an enigma: LOL. I say that in a good way. I have no explanation off the top of my head because it's 99.9% the other way around. Vertigo that begins with movement from bed and stops when the head stops moving. Also, I know of vertigo with eye movement. But you're talking lid opening to activate and lid closure to deactivate? Dude...I wanna party with you! I will be doing a literature search and get back ...Read more
I get a weird vibration feeling the the back top of my head for a few seconds where my eyes unfocus and I experience some vertigo. What is it?
Too vague to know: First of all, this part of the website doesn't answer the question "What is it? " That's diagnosis, which (read the disclaimer) is something that the docs who answer these questions don't do. Second, the vertigo SUGGESTS (that's as far as I'll go) an inner-ear problem. See your doctor. If he/she can't figure it out, referral to an ORL doc may be considered. ...Read more
Today I had a very brief moment of double vision. Less than a second. I did not have vertigo, just felt like my eyes were crossed. Is this serious?
Double Vision: Blurry vision can seem to be double and is difficult for some people to differentiate between the two. Lasting only seconds is not a concern, notice if the double vision is with one eye only next time. ...Read more
When I watch tv or look at a busy object my eyes start to feel like a kaleidescope and I get dizzy. I have positional vertigo but could this be it?
Good question: Positional vertigo is the result of loose calcium carbonate stones in the inner ear moving with change in position. The symptoms you are describing are consistent with a group of non-specific entities called visual vertigo, phobic postural vertigo, and is collectively called chronic subjective dizziness (csd). You need a full workup to rule out inner ear vestibular disease. Ent visit. ...Read more
My girlfriend has had vertigo-like symptoms (she describes a swooping sensation, can lose slight balance) as well as bloodshot eyes. What could it be?
See doc: No reason to wait. ASAPGet a more detailed answer ›
COULD BE: With eyes open, you can fixate on an object and compensate for vestibular imbalance. With eyes closed, things can rapidly deteriorate. You need to uncover causation. See an ear, nose, throat specialist and get tested. ...Read more
