Having lightheadedness and muffled hearing. Have pain in the left side of bottom of rib cage and back. Whats happening?

Hi recently when I stand up I sometimes experience lightheadedness and muffled hearing, also sometimes when lying on my tummy and lifting my head up (this one I have had on and off for years) I am 40 not overweight with normal blood pressure. I have also had a pain in my left side around the bottom of the ribcage front and back for a couple of weeks. Defo not kidneys, I can make it worse by bending my head towards my chest. I feel fine when being very active - just spent the weekend running around with v energetic nieces at adventure playground. Any ideas?!

Hi thanks for using HCM.

Your history suggest that you may have postural hypotension.Get checked for BP at lying and then standing for 30 s to 1 min from lying position. The pain at left side and back may be due to musculoskeletal pain. Take Tab Aceclofenac with Muscle relaxant(Chlorzoxazone) combination three times a day for 2 days. This will relive your pain. If not cured consult a doctor and take one xray chest PA view to look for any problem in lungs. Hope I answered your question.
Wish you good health.
