Strange balance issues

Hi there,

This is my first post, so I'm I apologize in advance if I've inadvertently disregarded any of the guidelines put forth in these boards.

So today, I got out of bed kind of quickly because I was late for classes. I run up the stairs, only to find, once at the top, a very strange sensation of my balance being out of kilter (kelter?). I'm not sure how to explain it, but it felt like my balance was impaired, almost like being buzzed from alcohol. It's disorienting and the sensation definitely feels like it stems from my head, but it does go on to affect my walking/balance. I do find the feeling is augmented by sudden movements like going up/down stairs. It's it's really nothing overly serious, but it is easily noticeable. As the day progressed, I felt slight feelings of queasiness/nausea (nothing serious at all, just only barely discernible), something I don't experience on a regular basis. As of right now, the nauseous feelings haven't made any appearances in a while.

I have heard that a lot of one's balance is dependent upon the working of the ear, so is that a possibility?

Minor Anxiety/Panic are a part of my history (starting about 10 months ago), but I don't believe there is any connection. The balance issue has not spurred on any form of anxiety or vice versa.

I realize that this only just happened to me and it is quite possible that tomorrow I'll wake up without any further symptoms, but I'd still like to hear some opinions.

Kind Regards

Re: Strange balance issues

Getting out of bed and rushing upstairs can often cause dizziness as your blood pressure will be low after sleeping. Have a drink and some breakfast in future - give yourself more time. As for it happening later in the day, are you eating enough? Your blood sugar could be too low, or you could be dehydrated. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about if you've only just noticed it.
