Remember to get up s: Sounds like you had an episode of orthostatic presyncope. When we maintain a position of sitting/ laying for a period of time, our body gets used to a certain blood pressure. When we then stand up, the blood rushes down to our feet with decreased blood flow to the brain. If we get up too quickly, the vessels have not had time to constrict and we get dizzy or faint. Rising slowly should help. ...Read more

Feeling tired, worse with an ongoing headache for the past couple of weeks. Lightheaded even while laying down. Sweating or just hot, blurry vision?

Blurry vision?: Go see your eye doctor! If my vision changed, I wouldn't wait another second wondering why. As for other symptoms, may simply be due to dehydration from heat/sweating. Try consuming enough water to make urine pale & clear. If that's not enough to make you feel better, it's time to see your Family Doc. But in mean time, go see Ophthalmologist or Optometrist (whoever you can get appt with first). ...Read more

Many things: It could mean many things. It could be as simple as you not getting exercise regularly and you are "deconditioned". It can be much more serious to be due to your heart not getting enough blood flow. I would see a doctor about this. If it happens and doesn't get better when you sit back down, you may want to go to the er via ambulance as it could be your heart. ...Read more

See your doctor: There are good treatments for hyperhidrosis (sweating too much). First, make sure you are not on a medicine that contributes - some anti-depressants commonly cause this. Before stopping them, however, discuss it with your doctor. Injecting Botox can be extremely helpful. Also there is a chemical called drysol that can be applied before bed and works great as well. ...Read more

Excessive sweating of a toddler while at sleep. And cold to touch, starting from his head down to back. What's the real problem?
