There is a reason for your dizziness

15 Nov

Do you sometimes feel dizzy when you stand up? I do and I often wondered why. I just read an article where it says there could be several reasons why this happens:

You may have gotten up too quickly on your feet and this may cause a severe drop in blood pressure it causes dizziness or even fainting.

Normally when you go from sitting to standing, your nervous system temporarily compensate by narrowing your blood vessels and increasing your heart rate.  This is supposed to prevent this sudden drop in blood pressures says Mayo Clinic doctors.

Other possible causes could be:

     Too high dosage of blood pressure-lowering medications

      irregular heart beat or arrhythmia

      severe dehydrations.

The best thing for you is to check with your doctor and get things checked out.
