What is the difference between the symptoms of vertigo and symptoms of orthostatic hypotension?

Motion vs. lighthead: Vertigo is defined as "the sensation of motion in the absence of motion." this will lead to the feeling that either you are moving in some way (spinning is common) or your environment is moving. People with orthostatic hypotension do not typically complain of motion, rather they feel as if they are lightheaded or as if they might faint. ...Read more

Bubbling feeling at lower abdomen. Symptom of?  Also accompanied by dizziness. Low blood pressure by nature.

Abdomen pain: You may have a lot of stress which could be upsetting your stomach or eaten something that did not agree with you. The dizziness is likely from not eating and drinking enough. I would drink 32 to 40 oz of water and see if your dizziness does not resolve. You are probably dehydrated and the dizziness will go away once you are rehydrated. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

Yes disease: At 5'2" and 194 pounds, a person has at least one major disease in need of evaluation and treatment... obesity (unless the excess weight is muscle). Her primary care doctor can check further to see why the obesity is there, and to see if there is a hormonal imbalance. The orthostatic hypotension may or may not be related (either directly or indirectly) to obesity. ...Read more

Have first case of vertigo, low blood pressure. Why is this usually?

Have first case of vertigo, low blood pressure. Why is this usually?

Not related: Vertigo ("spinning" type dizziness) has several causes primarily related to the inner ear and cerebellum. Low blood pressure (which may be normal for you) has several causes but the two problems are not related. Abnormally low BP can cause the type of dizziness in which one feels as though they could faint. Fainting is not part of vertigo. Hearing loss, ringing & nausea may accompany vertigo. ...Read more
