Suffering from headaches and dizziness.
I have been experiencing headaches for the past few weeks. They are not overly painful, but they brought up some concern for me. They are located all over my head, not centralized to one spot. I have pressure in my temples, behind my eyes, and the back of my head tends to be sore. The top of my...

Nausea, dizziness, sleeping more

dizziness, taking Stemetil
I keep getting recurring dizzy spells, mostly when I am in bed and the whole room seems to spin, although I do get it a little whilst I am up. This seems to occur every few months or so - can you please tell me what might cause it - I do take Stemetil when I have it and these seem to help a bit .

Sudden dizziness. Reason?
I m 19 years old, 5 2 , and weight approx. 140 lbs. I don t have any notable medical history (but mostly because I don t go to the doctor very often). My problem is really sudden and terrifying dizziness bouts that happen occasionally. I ll be sitting in front of the computer or in bed reading,...
Hi, I've been experiencing from what i would describe as dizzy spells for quite some time now (as in a few years) they come and go and are quite random however 9 times out of 10 they will occur within a minite or so of sit-standing, from what i can recall they tend to occur more in the afternoon than in the morning and i dont necessarily get them everyday. I might get a couple in a day then not have any for a while... So it makes it hard for me to put my
Finger on what actually causes it. Basically when i experience these "dizzy spells" i get the sudden feeling of warm blood rushing kind if like a heat flush but i dont sweat. Everything goes brown - i lose my vision for roughly 5-10 seconds then it the brown slowly fades and i regain full vision. I feel like im going to lose my leg in and i often have to grab onto something close by. Whether that means i fall against a wall, or i press up against something, or i just stand completely still and try not to collapse. A couple of times i have been close by to the couch or bed and ive allowed myself to just collapse into it and i havent felt a thing, it could of been the floor and i wouldnt have known. Ive never actually lost consiousness. A couple of times ive been in mid conversation and tried to keep my composure and to my knowledge i have but i dont know if my eyes deviated or anything... I must admit i dont drink as much water as i should on a daily basis and i do have 1 or 2 cans of diet coke a day. I eat relativley well (im a recoverying bulimic) and i dont exersise all that much anymore (i used to do a lot of sport and fittness) but for the past 6 years its slowly decreased. I'm a 21yo female and am roughly 162 cms tall and weigh 62-65 kgs (at the moment im 63 but my weight can fluctuate between 2-4kgs a day this is not uncommon to me and has been something that i can always remeber to be the case) I take a stimulant for concentration (PRN i take it when i need it) usually 15mg of dexamphetamine once daily 3 times a week (for uni) but there are more days i dont take than i do and ive been on this for about 7 years and i dont really think its related. For the last 1.5 years ive had to start wearing glasses - not so much for close up thing but things are generally blurry in the distance. Also as a kid i constantly had ear infections (swimmers ear) due to always being in the pool and had my ears suctioned out a few times, i havent had an ear problem in years and years though. I as a young adolescent always had a BP on the lower side (90's on 40 sorta thing) but in recent years its usually 110/120 on 80ish and my HR is usually in the 100's (probably due to the stimulant) but even of i havent taken it for days/weeks etc my HR is usually >90. Also lately - last 2/3 weeks my legs and feet feel like they might have a DVT in the sense that i cant keep them still for too long even if im sitting, driving or lying flat due to a warm discomfrot feeling as if the circulation isnt great. I dont get pins and needles if they are flat and not crossed but as soon as i cross my legs within a few minutes i have pins and needles. Just then (after dinner) i did a portural BP woth an electronic cuff and sitting the BP was 114/67 and HR 111 then standing 98/63 HR 125 i struggle in the heat (hot days/ hot showers and baths, i get really weak, light headed, lethargic and floppy- sometimes unable to support my own weight) im not really sure what other relevant info i can give but more than happy to answer questions to give you a better picture.
Do you have an associated nausea, vomiting, ringing ear, hearing difficulty associated with this? Perhaps the dizziness is related to benign vertigo (which is not concerning).

I dont no if its related but I had sex with my fiance unprotected and today I have felt dizzy and now I feel dizzy weak and sick what could this be ?
Hi and thanks for the query,
I am afraid they really do have no relationship. Maybe you got a psychological issue. If not, you might have to consult a doctor. Thanks and kind regards,

Hi Thanks for using HCM.
At your age this may be probably due to hypoglycemia or due to any infection. Take plenty of fluids, nutritious diet and do out door exercises. For head ache take paracetamol. If it continues then get back for other options of management.
