Dizziness and disorientation while standing up. Have a benign tumor in thyroid. Could it be due to it?

Almost every time I go from squatting position to standing or stand up from sitting, I get really bad head spins the point that I nearly fall over. Its been happening for couple years now. I have had blood pressure checked immediately after spell & it was perfectly fine. I ve ruled out medications as am not on any currently. Sometimes I loose control of my body & my legs & arms start to shake as if I m fighting fainting . If I m holding on to something I can t keep grasp of it. People have had to hold onto me before so I don t fall over. I have a benign tumor in my thyroid . Could it be to do with this?

It can be due to cervical spondylosis. Just get yourself checked by orthopedic surgeon. Also you can consult physiotherapist for neck exercises. Benign tumor in thyroid will rarely cause these symptoms.
Wish you good health.
