i feel dizy when i lay down and wake up, why?
Hi. This is usually due to a problem of the internal ear , which contains the balance apparatus. Due to swelling or imbalance in its fluid contents one gets dizziness either on getting up and lying down. Get checked by an ENT / Neurologist, Who would do a clinical examination , which is very important in cases of dizziness to find the underlying cause. He may advise you scan accordingly.
 
Ive been laying down for about 3 hours now and cannot fall asleep i feel like i have shortness of breath it started roughly an hour ago
Shallow breathing usually occurs when one is awake, if on lying down and awake the shallow breathing then can cause breathlessness. Do go for a brisk walk for a while and then go for sleep. This would solve your problem.
 
Why would you get dizzy when you lay down and get up in the morning,and feel nervous
You could have postural hypotension. Your Dr would need to check your blood press on lying and standing to see if there was a significant drop. He may also want to do some general blood work. If it was postural hypotension I would be happy to discuss its management with you.
