Dizziness and nausea when waking up in the morning

I am very dizzy and light headed when I wake up in the morning and once I sit up I am nauseated. My back and neck are very tight and sometime I have a slight headache. This lasts from a few hours to all day long, sometimes the nausea is really bad other time just a little. If I take 2 ibuprofen the symptoms subside but don't totally go away. This started a few months ago (not as severe) and went away but for the last 4-5 days it has come back and seems worse; the second day I thought I was going to pass out and I felt really bad most of the day. I still went to work but it was hard to concentrate and I stayed at my desk all day because I was so dizzy. Yesterday I felt much better but I was still dizzy and slightly nauseated and my back and neck were still somewhat tight. Today I took 2 ibuprofen as soon as I woke up (I was feeling slightly dizzy) and I feel pretty good right now; my back is still slightly tight and I feel slightly light headed. My neck has popped several time and is not tight.
I am 52, female, generally healthy and have never had any serious illnesses or accidents.

Re: Dizziness and nausea when waking up in the morning

Have you had your hormones checked? This is exactly how I feel going through perimenopause. I am taking bioidentical hormones. It helps but to be honest I still suffer. I am under extreme stress right now. We are packing up our house to move out. We are losing it to foreclosure. I wake up with dizziness, shakiness, sore neck and back ...and I also grind my teeth in my sleep. For me it is stress and perimenopause. Those are my two thoughts for you. There may be other reasons. But I just thought I would throw that out there for you.

All the best!!

Re: Dizziness and nausea when waking up in the morning

Sorry to hear about your house; that sucks.
Thanks for your advise; I hadn't thought that. I work for a government agency and right now I am deployed away from my home, I plan to see a doctor once I go back home but that won't be for a month or so (I hope). I am thinking about trying to sleep sitting up in my bed and see if that helps (if I can sleep that way). I dread going to sleep because I know I will feel dizzy ad stiff when I awake.
