User :   what kind of details
User :   ?
Doctor :   Did you get your blood pressure checked in recent past ?
User :   yes last week it was 138 over 80
Doctor :   Did you also get your Blood Sugars tested anytime in recent past ?

User :   Im getting blood work Friday for my depokte levels and lithumn
User :   5"5 180 pounds very muscular
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Did this one minute dizziness happen only twice or more than that ?
User :   last week when I did the heavy set and tonight when i was yelling.
Doctor :   Ok , you need to understand that dizzines can be caused due to different reasons like : Doctor :   1. Vertigo, which I totally rule out in your case.
Doctor :   2. It can be also due to less electrolytes or Sodium and other salts
Doctor :   3. As you mentioned you are on anti-convulsants which cause Giddines & Blurred visions or sometimes even shakiness, seizures.
Doctor :   Hope you have followed ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   So there might be a need to change the drug dosage or change to other anti-convulsants after you discuss with your treating doctor.
User :   Sp its nothing to do with the heart
Doctor :   4. The recent dizziness also might suggest a slight change in your Blood Pressure in the last week or so, so might be you need to do a B.P. Check.
Doctor :   5. I would not immediately conclude that it is a heart related issue but would not rule out.
User :   or nothing to do with a tumor in my head
Doctor :   I advise you to observe the work out time & see if you have any pain, dizziness or any other symptoms over a period of time for the next week. If you have any you have to go for a Stress E.C.G.
Doctor :   AAAAAAA you need to be very confident about yourself , I feel that Tumor would be not in the differential diagnosis as you do not have Headache, Vomiting, Blurred vision or Pupillary contraction. So please do not be panicky.
User :   I have had a pain in the back of my neck on the right side for a month now and the doctor referred me to
Doctor :   Hope I have answered your query.
Doctor :   Ok, please go on.
User :   im back
Doctor :   Hi welcome back , please proceed .
User :   the phsical therapist said i have a pnched nerve or muscle spasms
Doctor :   Is the pain at the back of the neck, superficial or deep inside the head.
User :   right side of my neck on the bottom of my head
Doctor :   I feel it must be a muscle spasm or a nerve compression or pinching and I might have to agree with your doctor & physical therapist. The two symptoms might be totally unrelated and different. As you see tumor involvement is rare in the area you are specifying.
User :   ok..than no need to run up the emergancy room than
Doctor :   No, no t at all.
Doctor :   You need to speak to your treating doctor about the drug dosages as they have a definitive side effect of dizziness in long term usage or excess dosage.
User :   Thank You..are you in the usa or out of the country
Doctor :   I am out of XXXXXX
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me.
Doctor :   Hope you get well soon. Take care.
User :   thank you
Doctor :   Bye for now.
