Brief Answer:
GIDDINESS ?CAUSE needs investigation

Detailed Answer:
Wishing you a speedy and complete recovery .
Giddiness/chakkars recurrent with associated vomitings SOS can be due to many reasons , for which few investigations are to be done .
May i suggest
1. Get your blood pressure check regularly . take medication if bp is low /high. As low/high bp can also cause giddiness.

2. Get CBC/bi sugar / serum sodium /serum potassium / as occasionally low sugar /sodium can also cause giddiness esp. early morning

3 Get your xray cervical spine to rule out cervical spondylosis

4. If above all are normal , get a complete heart checkup .as heart arrythmias can also cause giddiness .

5 If heart checkup is also normal , get a detailed ENT check up to rule out benign positional vertigo .

6.If ENT exam is also normal get a MRI BRAIN .

7 Till that time take symptomatic treatment like BETAHISTINE/ CINNARAZINE / ANTIEMETICS etc.

Hope this answers your querry

How long can I retain a 153/100 Blood Pressure and be safe? And...? My blood pressure is 153/100 and has been like that since my Dr. visit a few months ago (my last dr visit before that was 3 years ago). How long is it safe for my bp to be this high? My dr didn t prescribe any meds, although in his office my bp was 154/95. He also said that I needed to lose weight and eat less salt. I m 5 5 and 169 lbs My other question is, if my weight has any a lot to do with my bp being high would I be able to take a diet pill. A few years ago I was on phentermine 37.5mg and had dramatic weight loss within two months (then had a baby, and packed on some weight) so I thought If I got on the pills I could loose weight quickly and lower by bp. Thanks

I am a 26 year old male who has been on high blood pressure medication (enalipril 20mg) for about 5 years. Lately I have taken in interest in really controlling my BP so I have monitored it multiple times daily and often have readings such as 134/69 and 127/72(not bad readings). I have really been working hard at exercising and dieting and having a much longer happier balanced life. The problem I am having now is coming across a new term ( pulse pressure ) not pulse rate. They say that if you take your systolic and subtract your diastolic you get your pulse pressure and that it should be in the 40 range or it could be a sign of stiffening arteries. Could anyone tell me if I should be concerned with this or if the result of these recurring high pulse pressures are not significant. I averaged out 14 BP readings over the course of 4 days and the average PP is mid 50s, should I be worried?
