    Dizzy feeling

    Has any one experienced dizziness during menopause, and also just a vertigo feeling?

    Yes but it wasn't connected to menopause.

    My dizziness started when I was about 30 and it took me several years to figure out what was causing it. And the solution was relatively simple. I have always had good blood pressure but a little on the low side, like 100/50 when sitting/resting. When you sleep at night your blood pressure will go even lower. And if you happen to be dehydrated, it will go way too low at night. So I would sometimes wake up dizzy.

    The solution: make sure to stay properly hydrated.

    Strange thing is: If I got real dizzy, drinking water didn't seem to help but it does help to prevent it from happening in the first place.

    What causes dehydration to happen to many people, especially older people, is bladder control issues. They don't like frequent urination or lack of control, so they try to solve the problem by drinking less water.


    This is just one reason for dizziness and of course there are other reasons.

    Have you had a thorough work-up from your doctor?

    Is it positional, when standing after sitting for a long period of time, visual or turning your head quickly?
    Is it constant and when is it worse?

    I have not gone to my doctor over this yet, it is not constant, happens periodically throughout the day, position has not been a factor, I can have them setting , standing, walking...and I donít think itís dehydration I drink water all day long. itís about to drive me crazy...so I guess Iíll go get checked

    Definitely best to have it checked. Make a well prepared list of symptoms, when it started, meds, diet, etc.

    Please keep us updated on how you're doing and about the appointment.
