Hi. I m and 11 year old girl and I get dizzy spells a lot. When I m sitting down or standing up it will feel like I m about to pass out. I get them about 2 or 3 times every two days. Is this normal? And I not what might I have? Do I need to go to a doctor?

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with orthostatic hypotension and have been taking generic Florief (Fludrocort 0.1 mg) since. More recently I have had to adjust my dosage to 1/2 every other night since my BP has sometimes been high. Last Friday morning s readings were good: sitting 121/68-70, standing 101/65-75. I took 1/2 pill at bedtime. I did not check on Saturday but Sunday am readings were 144/79-65 sitting & 121/71-71 standing. Today am: 103/63-69 sitting, 80/50-75 standing and at 5:40 pm 120/62-70 sitting. I am puzzled by why my BP readings are so erractic, sometimes HIGH and sometimes LOW. I get headaches & am dizzy when it is high and yet I am very dizzy when it is low. Any suggestions on how to keep it consistent?

Hi, i have a problem of every time i stand up, even if it is not too fast i get a bit dizzy and everything gets dark. Usually when I have a bit of low blood pressure this happens but only if i get up quickly. What seems to be happening here is even if i take my time getting up I get dizzy and blank and have to hold on to something before it passes, which usually takes around ten seconds. What is the problem it is worrying me? Thanks, Jenny.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
