Sudden change in position may cause a sudden change in blood pressure causing postural hypotension.You need to get your blood pressure monitored.Also in some congenital cardiac diseases,similar symptoms may precede.You should get a cardiac check up if your blood pressure is found to be normal.

I have had a problem with my heart beat rate changing from laying down at about 70 to 80 bpm, then sitting 90 to 120 or so, then to standing around 146 to 165 and my monitor says EE for error if higher at times. I have been sick with many other symptoms, blurry vision off and on, no appetite, Major Depressive Disorder, Migraines. While preparing medical records I have for an attorney for social security, I noted one doctor had a CT scan taken in 2005 and it said I have a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst, but he didn t think it was anything important. I did some research and found several articles that lead me to believe this may very well be what is causing my problems.... I had also be reviewing cases of Neural Mediated Hypotension which I seem to have quite a few of the same symptoms as some of the writers. Could this cyst being over the nerve area leaving the brain cause me to have Neural Mediated Hypotension?

When sitting still I get a feeling like I m on a boat. Dizzy spells and shaky hands even though I ve had a meal and I usually need to eat something sweet to stop the dizziness.

My 16 year old daughter fainted yesterday at school about 30 minutes after taking Bayer asprin. Today, before giving blood at her school blood drive, a nurse checked her blood pressure and it was 90/62 (they let her give blood anyway). After giving blood, she felt very weak and could hardly stand up. Could her fainting be from the asprin or could it be a side effect of her low blood pressure?
