I'm just curious. What is the causes for dizziness in different positions.?

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.

Does dizziness cause nystagmus?

Maybe: Dizziness is a very ambiguous and subjective word that can mean many things. Nystagmus is an objective finding. That means, a good doc can examine a patient and determine if they have nystagmus. It means the eyes are rhythmically moving in a particular direction.

Can hypocalcemia cause Dizziness?

Can hypocalcemia cause Dizziness?

In the extreme: Hi. You should be being treated with calcitriol and calcium for your hypoparathyroidism. If you don't take your calcium & calcitriol, your calcium can get very low, and if very low, dizziness can ensue. Be safe, treat your hypocalcemia. I recommend you run your calcium at or just below the lower limit of the normal range, so you don't have too high urinary calcium and risk kidney stones. Good luck
