I have been dizzy for the last 9 months. what should I do ?

I ve been dizzy for the last 9 months..At first we thought it was from a fall I had.? Could my dizzy spells I have everyday alot be related to the blockage in my heart?All I have to do is just turn over in bed and I feel as though I m going to pass out. I ve not mentioned this to my Heart doctor. Should I ?

UMMMM??? YES! You might want to mention it to him. You are worried enough to ask it here, you should be worried enough to ask your doctor. He is the expert, and, if you have a heart doctor, you should NEVER keep any of these symptoms from him. I hope you get better.

Hi, I am a 26 year old female. I had my last health check up 4 months ago just before I left India and came to the UK and all the reports were normal. For almost a week now I always feel dizzy and tired. When I sleep, I dont get up for atleast 12 hours(unintentionally) and still feel sleepy. Is this due to the change in food habits? Or can there be other reasons? What is the solution for this?

My husband blood pressure, gets very high in the mornings. He also experiences light headiness & dizziness throughout the day. He is on Lisinopril with HCTZ. He had surgery abot 4 years ago to remove a acoustic neuroma tumor that was on his hearing nerve & pressing on his brain stem. He has been suffering extreme ringing and dizziness for the past 4 years, but now the symptoms are much more severe, especially with the light head & dizzy spells & blood pressure. Help!!

I think I have orthostatic hypotension but I am not sure. When I stand up I get the normal dizziness but my vision also fades to black for a few seconds. Sometimes I get tunnel vision. I am a runner so I thought it could be having a runner s pulse, but no one on my team experiences vision loss or as much dizziness. I am not dehidrated either. Is there anything I can do to stop this? Or do I need to see a doctor?

I am 20 years old, and have Addison s Disease. Recently I have had rapid heart rate, orthostatic hypertension, petachie spots, fatigue, mood swings, pain in legs, head aches...etc What is most concerning is the high heart rate, it stays in the 80 s at the least at rest. And it is very difficult to get up after sitting, my heart starts racing and pumping harder. Here are some blood test results: at 12:27 PM WBC 4.0L RBC 4.92 Hemoglobin 16.4 Hematocrit 47.5 MCV 96.6 MCH 33.4 MCHC 34.6 RDW 12.1 Platelets 178 Neutrophuls 41.9 Lymphs 43.6 Monocytes 10.3 Eos 3.5 Basos 0.7 Neutrophils (Absolute) 1.70 Lymphs (Absolute) 1.7 Monocytes (absolute) 0.40 Eos (Absolute) 0.2 Baso (Absolute) 0.00 eGFR - unable to calculate due to inappropriate age/gender/creatinine value glucose 76 BUN 14 creatinine 0.9 sodium 138 potassiu, 4.5 chloride 102 carbon dioxide 28 calcium 9.7 protein 7.1 albumin 4.1 globulin 3.0 bilirubin 3.0 alkaline phosphatase 49 AST 13 vitamin b12 487 CT scan recently done with no tumor on adrenals, adrenals actually couldn t be seen due to my lack of fat they say. I take 0.1 fludrocortisone and 30mg hydrocortisone. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
