dizzy when I blow my nose

I thought I had experienced about everything pertaining to inner ear but now this. When I gently blow my nose I feel like I am about to pass out. It feels almost like I'm about to have a vertigo attack. Anyone experience this & what causes it? Thanks.

Re: dizzy when I blow my nose

i know this is very common with a perilymph fistula which is what i have... straining, lifting, bending etc. can also cause dizziness.

i hope this helps,

christine

Re: dizzy when I blow my nose

I have this too, not the perilymph fistula, but when blow my nose I feel as if I am going to pass out, not sure what it is caused from other then the pressure of our sinuses and vertigo may play a part in it.

Oh, if you find an answer, post it so we can all know why this happens when we blow our nose.
Thanks

Re: dizzy when I blow my nose

It sounds like it may be a vagus nerve response. very common. You can search the web for vagus nerve for more info.

Re: dizzy when I blow my nose

I get dizzy (or extremely lightheaded) everytime I blow my nose also - it's a symptom of Meniere's Disease. It's not life threatning but there is no cure and it can get very frustrating to deal with on a day to day basis. Some good days and some bad - I definitely seem to be sensitive to barametric changes in the weather (especially when it's overcast or rain is on the way or in the vicinity).
