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?

Hi,I have a unusual issue that causes muscle fatigue, general fatigue, and slightly elevated blood pressure. I have been to the E.R. once, and they checked my blood, but said everything came back perfect . I know the doctor said something about checking for sodium potassium and thyroid stuff. I don t know what else though. I ve had this issue for about 3 months now, and it started simply with slight weakness in my upper legs, then as the the day would progress, it would move into calfs, neck and shoulders, etc. Now, anytime I try and walk up stairs,my legs burn, I have out of breath, and it s just very uncomfortable.

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
