Sudden Dizziness

Hi all,

I keep getting sudden dizzy spells that are freaking me out a little. I can be standing or sitting and at any time of the day. My BP is checked regularly and is always fine, my sugar levels are ok too.

When I get a spell while standing it feels like I'm on the funhouse ride at a fairground, where the ground moves under your feet. I have to hold on to things to feel safe.

Today I've experienced a spell whilst sitting at my desk for the first time. I got a wave of numbness through my head and then my head dropped a little liek I was about to pass out. Thankfully no one noticed! I doesn't feel nice at all.

Does anyone else get this or am I just weird?

Re: Sudden Dizziness

Hi,

Sorry to hear that, I had dizzy spells a few years ago it turned out both my ears were blocked one was 90% and the other was 70%. It might help to get your ears checked I felt my earing was ok but it just goes to show.

Also stress can give you dizzy spells to.

hope you get over this soon

Darryl

Re: Sudden Dizziness

Darryl's post makes sense to me, as I know that sinus/ear infections will cause dizzyness (is that a word?)

Re: Sudden Dizziness

Have you seen an ENT Dr. to see if you have some inner ear infection or sinus problem. I know when my sinuses are acting up I can get quite dizzy even while just sitting doing nothing. I'd definately check for those.

You said your BP was fine, but could it be at times it goes low and your not aware of it? Does it happen more when your hungry..low sugar? Talk with your Dr. as even if your BP or sugar goes low temporarily, it will happen.

I'm sort of leaning towards what darryl said.

BTW Snow...yes that is a word but it's spelled DIZZINESS..;-)

Well wishes....JJ...

Re: Sudden Dizziness

Thanks all, this is definitely something I'm going to get checked out, i'm still feeling a bit light-headed and wobbly. It's probably something very simple, like you've said . . my ears/sinuses etc.

P.S - JJ - Love the Care Bear pic!

Re: Sudden Dizziness

I have been getting these for a few years now. Only the last couple of days I have felt nausea. I am on Lisinopril for my BP but it is an extremely small dose of 10mg. My BP with meds is about 130/70. Without I am about 140/90. I had a dizzy spell today while at my desk. I have a BP meter in my drawer so I tested during the spell and I was totally normal. I do have an ear rumble that has been around for many years and it is constant. Normal doc visual tests cannot see any problems with my ears. The rumble is in the right ear. It does feel like I have water in my ear as when I chomp my teeth together I hear a kind of boomy echo just like when there is water. I am now thinking about visiting an ENT to get an in depth exam. If there is fluid in my ear, and it can be fixed, I will be so happy.
