What causes lightheadedness especially when moving around or bending?
Vertigo and orthostatic hypotension
Thanks for using HCM.
The lightheadedness that you experience while moving around or bending could due to vertigo or orthostatic hypotension.
Vertigo could be as a result of conditions like benign positional vertigo, inner ear problem like Meniere's disease or nerve problem like acoustic neuroma.
Orthostatic hypotension is a condition in which there is a drop in blood pressure when there is a change in posture. This could occur when you are dehydrated, when you have problems with heart , hormones or nervous system.
Hot flashes and muscle wekaness are common in post menopausal women.
You can discuss with your physician about these possibilities and get tests done.
I hope that answers your question.
With kind regards,
