Dizziness Whenever I stand up

I get dizzy a lot. Whenever I stand up, about half the time I have to hold on to something to keep my balance. I also kind of start to black out where I can t see or hear clearly. These symptoms are worse when I m hungry, but still happen when I m full. This has been going on for a little over a year now. While I ve never completely lost consciousness, I have fallen a few times. Is this something I can change? Also, I don t feel like it s vertigo, because the room is not spinning. I just feel faint and weak when I stand.

This can be orthostatic hypotension. You need to consult your physician and get yourself thoroughly examined.

Thanks for using HealthCareMagic.

Can be postural hypotension. But do not neglect. Please consult your doc. Let him have your BP in supine(sleeping), sitting and standing positions.
