Vision Woozy Leaning Head Pillow Cause
I get double vision and feel woozy after leaning the back of my head on pillow or couch back. What could be the cause of this?
Low blood flow: In some patients the blood vessels that run in the back of your neck to your brain (vertebral arteries) can be pinched by the spine, especially if you have arthritis. This can cause symptoms when you put your head back as the blood flow to your brain is diminished. It could also be caused by spasms of the muscles themselves. You should start by seeing your primary care doctor and getting an exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Circulation issue: The back of the neck contains the vertebral arteries, the blood supply to the back of the brain, hearing, balance and vision centers.
