Dizziness on lying down or standing up, feeling of giddiness, difficulty in working out. What could be the cause?

Hi, recently I ve been getting dizzy whenever I lie down, or if I stand up from lying down to fast, it feels like the room is spinning half way, it only lasts about 1-3 seconds then stops, I ve been getting this feeling for around 1 week, I don t feel dizzy when standing or walking, it s only when I lie down. I ve had this before, it usually lasts around 1-4weeks, then it goes away for around 3-4 months. This has been the 3rd bout of dizziness on a separate occasion, with months in-between. I can t work out what it s related to, I m starting to think it s something different entirly. I m a 17 year old female. And I can t afford to visit the doctors right now. Any advice?

Hi there,

You might want to get your blood pressure checked as you might be haying hypotension(low blood pressure). I would also suggest you get your hemoglobin levels, blood sugars and thyroid levels checked as anaemia, thyroid disorders, low sugar levels etc can also present with symptoms similiar to what you are experiencing. Kindly do visit a doctor. Meanwhile eat healthy and drink 8 glasses of water a day.
