Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
In high blood pressure sudden fluctuation in blood pressure levels might cause the dizziness you felt.Excessive high or low levels might be responsible.To avoid such episodes, take your medicine regularly, keep track of your B.P.levels once a week and drink plenty of water.

Since 3 weeks ive been suffering from episodes of sudden dizziness that does not last more than one minute but that is followed by nausea and sometimes palpitations and rapid breath.I have done some blood tests incincluding cbc, ferritin, vitamin b12, TSH, T3and T4. All results were normal. What could be the reason behind such repeated episodes of dizziness? Note: such symptons appear once or twice a week and less when I am relaxed.

Hello Doctor Rynne, I was just doing the dishes and out of nowhere I got really shaky and dizzy and I thought I was going to throw up. I laid down on the couch long enough to feel sturdy enough to get back to my bedroom, but I still feel a little out of it. What is going on?

Hi today at work I experienced a sudden bout of extreme dizziness and nausea. I had to call my wife to pick me up and could barely walk to the car. I had to lay perfectly still with my eyes closed for several hours before I began to improve. This happened about a year ago in similar fashion. The next day I still felt shaky but could work. I am 61 and in good health. What is the possible cause of this sudden attacks?
