My head hurts, get dizzy when I walk around or stand up?

See your doctor: If these episodes are consistent, you may be having heart issues. Rapid changes in position can cause reduction in flow back to the heart that most people can compensate for, but you are not. You might need an echocardiogram to rule out heart issues. You may just be "out of shape" but you need to talk to a doctor to get started on finding out the answers. ...Read more

Why do I get blurry vision shaky and dizzy when I stand up and start walking?

Why do I get blurry vision shaky and dizzy when I stand up and start walking?

Blood pressure chang: You are most likely experiencing orthostatic hypotension. This is where your blood pressure at rest fails to increase upon standing, resulting in less oxygen to your brain which then leads to your blurred vision, dizziness, etc. Make sure you are well hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, and talk to your doctor if you take any diuretics or medicine for high blood pressure. Stand slowly and wait. ...Read more

Was on bed rest few months. I have began to stand up but walking, turning body, looking down I get lightheaded/dizzy. That normal after bed rest?

Yes: We put women who have pregnancy induced hypertension on bed rest to lower their blood pressure. We have receptors in our neck called baroreceptors that raise our blood pressure when we are upright. In some people, especially the elderly, these don't work well and it takes longer for their blood pressure to reset when they stand up. ...Read more

I am on 10mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) for anxiety. For 8 weeks I felt brilliant. Now each morning I get up feeling jittery and irritable. Out walking today I got dizzy?

I am on 10mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) for anxiety. For 8 weeks I felt brilliant. Now each morning I get up feeling jittery and irritable. Out walking today I got dizzy?

Go to psychiatrist.: I believe that you have been so anxious and depressed that the reuptake of Serotonin made you feel initially brilliant. There are 2 possibilities: you still feel depressed that you may need more Lexapro (escitalopram) or you are now getting too much Serotonin. Go back to your doctor and he can adjust your dosage. Check your blood pressure to see whether it is too low. ...Read more

I passed out two weeks ago, ever since I've had a head ache and I get dizzy even if I walk a bit? Why?

Urgent care / ER: Head trauma? Might have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (tinnitus, difficulty concentrating, irritability) then maybe post-concussion syndrome. Improvement in symptoms is based on many factors including severity and location of the concussion. Go to urgent care or an ER for evaluation. Http://www. Webmd.

Why do I get dizzy and loose feeling in my right leg? Happens when I walk and my head is tilting frequently.

Head tilting: Forward resulting in neurological symptoms obviates a careful assessment. If you have leg numbness and not just dizziness that suggests either a problem with blood flow to the brain (most likely posterior circulation) or an issue with slight traction on the spinal cord (as can be seen in many conditions including demyelinating disorders) The barber's chair sign is seen with MS. See a neurologist. ...Read more

Possible Heart: Your heart rate should not drop during exercise.

When standing on a queue or taking a walk in the mall most of the time I get dizzy. I went to my doctor and said my blood pressure is fine.

Most often there: Will be some dysregulation of the blood pressure, possibly due to issues with the autonomic nervous system, and repeat measurements of blood pressure needed in various situations--sitting, standing, after exercise, both arms--to try to document this. Making sure you stay well-hydrated to maintain volume in the vascular system is important. Evaluating your inner ear is also a good idea. Stay well:) ...Read more
