Why does it feel like my head is rushing?

Head feeling odd?: Please send another question to healthtap, with some details to describe your discomfort. Do you mean that you feel too much blood going to your head, or do you feel light-headed as if not enough blood is getting up there (may occur with a bit of dizziness and the vision graying out and then coming back)? New illnesses with fevers often cause such head sensations. Send us another question! Thanks.

Why does it feel like the blood is rushing to my head when I laydown flat?

Why does it feel like the blood is rushing to my head when I laydown flat?

Because it is: When you lay down, 500-1000ml of blood volume which had previously been stored in the legs is released from the pull of gravity and can contribute to the perfusion pressures of the head and brain, and gravity is no longer decreasing the pressure of blood rising to the head. The brain rapidly compensates for this but the facial vessels much less rapidly so you can get a transient flushing.

Vertigo - BPPV: If you have the sensation of the room spinning when you lie back, get up, or move your head suddenly, it sounds like you may have benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. There are many other causes of vertigo, and your provider can perform a simple maneuver in his office to see if you indeed have bbpv. Bppv is caused by an inner ear condition which is usually easily corrected.

Blood work: This symptom is very nonspecific. I m curious about your prior medical history. I wonder if your blood pressure is dropping or if your temperature is stable. I would also recommend blood tests for blood sugar levels or blood count or thyroid function.

What could be the. Cause of a head rush feeling and then feeling you might pass out?

Postural hypotension: If this happens when you stand up it might be from low blood pressure where the blood doesn't get sufficient supply to the brain and it can cause you to pass out. Blood pressure is a vital sign and is thus very important. See your md and get a diagnosis. You wouldn't want to fall and hurt yourself from this condition!

Is a head rush a dizzy type of feeling in the head?

Tricky: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, "Head rush" means different things to different people. To me it is: http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/Stendhal_syndrome more commonly lightheadedness which can be from low blood pressure or low blood sugar (each of which have a LOT of causes) dizziness like the room spinning (most often due to inner ear).
