Hello ryanpmahaffey , greetings from healthcaremagic.com
I am Dr Sourav Chakraborty and i have gone through your case scenario . I expected a more elaborate details of your symptoms and declaration of any co-morbid condition that you may have like diabetes, cardiac ailments ,hypertension
, thyroid disorder
, longstanding sinusitis, longstanding ear ailments and whether you are taking actively any medications for the same. Also you have not mentioned your age . Some of the causes of light headedness are low blood sugar
, panic attacks, anemia and rarely can be a symptom of many other conditions, some of them serious, such as abnormal heart rhythm or heart attack
, respiratory causes like pulmonary embolism
and stroke. Do you experience occasional chest pain, a feeling of a racing heart, loss of speech change in vision ? or do you experience light-headedness while getting up too quickly from a lying or seated position ? If your answer is " Yes " please do visit your doctor to get yourself checked . Light-headedness often accompanies the flu, common cold
or allergies. Dizziness could be provoked by the use of antihistamine drugs or by some antibiotics or certain antipsychotics. You shouldnot neglect your symptoms and get yourself checked by your physician at the earliest. Hope i have been able to help you with your doubts and please do forgive me for grammatical errors , if any. Take care.
