hello,
it is not clear by your question if u feel dizzy only when their is a bout of cough or otherwise also, because if it with a bought of cough it is just because of a normal physiological response of the body to persistently increased intrathoracic pressure leading to poor venous return leading to decreased blood supply to the brain. in short your brain is momentarily receiving less blood than required leading to dizziness their is nothing to be alarmed about. but if it persisting without cough also you should see a neurologist.

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.

I have the feeling of numbness in my head along with a constant headache, nausea and sudden feelings of being on fire. The heat starts from my back to my chest and head. I don t have a fever. When sitting still I get a feeling like I m on a boat. Dizzy spells and shaky hands even though I ve had a meal and I usually need to eat something sweet to stop the dizziness.

doctor1 MD

Then it turns into a slight headache. I am on blood pressure medication Procardia XL and have been on it since August. What could be my problem?
