Uveitis And Dizziness
Experiencing unusual dizziness, not like vertigo, which I’ve had before. My head feels like it’s heavier than normal and my balance is affected.
I have recently begun experiencing severe dizziness and associated balance issue for unknown reasons. I am a healthy 44 yo female s/p craniotomy 18 ye?
Lady's Mantle: Lady's mantle has been around for a long time, but no studies document its effectiveness for any indication. None of my resources specifically mentioned "bladder issues, " but it's been used to normalize menstrual periods, aid wound healing, as a vaginal douche, as an anti-inflammatory ; to soothe muscle spasms. Rarely it can cause liver damage. No, it's not normal to feel dizzy.
I've been having problems with my BP being low but just recently I got several diastolic readings in the 40's systolic not so low I'm very dizzy.?
My resting BP is 100's/60's, but every once in a while when feeling dizzy, it's around 123/107. If I recheck a minute later it's normal again. Why?
Hard to measure: Uveitis commonly occurs only once in a persons lifetime and in that sense is cured. But many cases are recurrent, and affect both eyes. Each episode in such cases can usually be treated to the point of no evident disease, but recurrence can happen at various intervals. These are therefore treated, but not cured. Some are persistent, with poor response and require systemic therapy.See 3 more doctor answers
Many Causes: Many things cause sudden dizziness. It could be an inner ear problem, heart condition, low blood sugar, vagal response, nerve condition or simply dehydration. If it is a recurring thing, it is time to see your doctor and have it examined further. One time episodes can be a sign of something worse, so unless you are generally a healthy person, evaluation of your dizziness is important.See 2 more doctor answers
Ekg, BP, CT or MRI: The symptom of dizziness may be from a circulation problem, a heart problem or a neurologic problem. Your Doctor may check your blood pressure in different positions to see if the dizziness is from blood pooling in the lower part of the body, he will check your heart with an ekg.

Constant dizziness: Dizziness describes different sensations to different people. Do you mean a spinning sensation, a feeling of faintness, or a sensation of unsteadiness when you walk? These different symptoms can be caused by disruption of different parts of the balance system. Inner ear inflammation, a tumor along the hearing/balance nerve, heart muscle or rhythm issues, brain anomalies, medications, among others.See 1 more doctor answer
Dizzy is the catch: Dizziness is a non-medical term, which means at least 50 different things. Dizziness does not refer to any specific symptom. What is your meaning for this term? Light headeness, floating feeling, spinning feeling, nausea, unsteadiness, falling sensation, impending faint, ringing in ears, blurred vision, double vision, numbness-tingling? I've heard all these descriptions and more.
If you have had: Your primary care evaluate you for physical problems, your next step is to see a mental health professional.
Dizzy: Positional "postural" dizziness can be due to a number of causes. Most commonly would be either a vestibular (middle/inner ear) or causes related to hydration. The brain is very stingy when it comes to wanting blood flow and oxygen. There are mechanisms in place to keep the blood moving from the heart to the brain. Often dehydration disrupt this normal process resulting in dizziness.
Causes of Dizziness: Look my previous answers. Check all medicines. Make sure your circulation of vertebral and carotid arteries is ok. If you have issues with your ears is most likely related to that (neuronitis o laberintitis or benign positional vertigo or menieres disease). Get good hydration drinking fluids unless contraindicated. Do not expose to the sun. Make sure heart is ok. There are many dizzyness w/o cure.See 1 more doctor answer
Dizziness: Dizziness with standing is usually related to a sudden drop in blood pressure (BP) when the person suddenly changes posture. You may go to your GP and have them measure your BP while lying down, then sitting up and finally standing up. Also check the heart rate in the same position. Orthostatic hypotension is usually associated with an increase in heart rate and a drop in BP
