Extreme Dizziness Or Lightheadness With A Heavy Head

Janey Says:

When I wake up in the am and sit up I am immediately in a state of vertigo. Often times the same thing will happen when I lay down at night, even though I am flat on my back - everything spins for a few seconds. I can't seem to find anything that will stop these sensations. I often have them throughout the day without any warnng.

Have either of you consulted your respective doctors?

These symptoms could be caused by several health conditions, including postural hypotension, which is caused due to sudden drops in blood pressure when you change position suddenly.

Ref: Postural Hypotension Information

In some cases, this can be caused by dehydration, certain medications, or even illnesses.

Are either of you on any medications? How much water do you drink in a day?
