What could be making me feel dizzy?

Asked by talljasperman (21858points) October 23rd, 2014

When I stand up to go pee I almost pass out and my head feels like it is draining blood. Some times I feel this way from lying down. The doctors gave me a blood and urine test, as well as a heart test. I get a CT scan soon.

You are doing the right thing to be evaluated by health care professionals. I wish you the best of good luck!

I get that feeling when I stand up too quickly or bend over ti get something and straighten up and I have low blood pressure (85/55 +- 10). Also when my heart is in atrial fibrillation my blood pressure at the hospital was recorded at “55 over too low to measure”. Thankfully my heart has remained in normal rhythm for almost 1½ years.

Inner ear problems like Labyrinthitis or Benign Positional Vertigo.

It could be low blood pressure. Allergies can also cause it .When sinuses are blocked it can cause dizziness.
I am glad you have doctors checking into it.
