What could be the cause of sudden dizziness ? My boyfriend has narcolepsy. Meds: lilyfluoxitine. Its when he gets up. Not feeling nauseous though.

Several ideas: I am not sure whether the narcolepsy is related to the dizziness. I have 3 possibilities for the dizziness. Dizziness is a very non-specific symptom.

Consider monitoring: Palpitation that do not show up on an ecg, with a normal echo in a 21 yr old are generally quite harmless. A holter monitor or an event recorder would be a way to record all your heart beats over several days or weeks to define exactly what it is you are feeling. Try limiting caffeine and energy drinks. ...Read more

Bloodwork & heart tests all came back clear. What could be causing my dizziness and migraines? Have a history of GAD. Ears are normal, no infection.

GAD can trigger tension and migraines headaches & dizziness. Altho it isn't a direct cause, treating it may lessen their frequency & severity. Dr. Anne ...Read more
