What causes dizziness when lying down on right side?
i have accident induced spondylosis and now tennis elbow in both my hand s . I terrible pain in both arms and went through physiotherapy last week . . Two days back i got up from the bed probably with a jerk and have developed giddiness. This occurs only when i lie down on my right side .
I understand your concern. This dizzines is a result of your spondilosis. Your degenerative cervical vertebrae is pressing the blood vessels, obviously stronger on the right side and this leads to lower short-term supply of blood to the brain which can cause dizziness. Try to avoid getting up directly from your rigt side. Try changing the position to the left to avoid the experience.
