<p>Hello Eileen,</p><p> </p><p>I am so sorry you are feeling so rough.</p><p> </p><p>This could be one of a number of things.</p><p> </p><p>Have you any idea what you blood pressure reading is? I am thinking it could be low which would cause these symptoms. One way of checking if you do not have the equipment to check it yourself, is the following:-</p><p> </p><p>When you next feel dizzy, lie flat on the bed, no pillows, just completely flat. Raise your legs up as high as you can manage on pillows, cushions or whatever you have to hand.</p><p> </p><p>Remain like that for at least 15 minutes, then bring your legs down so that your whole body is completely flat. Remain like that for a further 5 minutes or so and then gradually sit up very slowly. Sit on the edge of the bed for a few minutes and then slowly stand.</p><p> </p><p>This will have brought your blood pressure back up if it is low and you should be feeling much better.</p><p> </p><p>If that doesn't work then it isn't your blood pressure causing the problem. Next we must look at middle or inner ear infections. Very occasionally this condition will be treated by antibiotics from your GP but more often than not it will just be the symptoms which are treated by a tablet called Stemetil or Prochlorperazine which is it's other name.</p><p> </p><p>These tablets should stop the dizziness and stop any nausea caused by the dizziness.</p><p> </p><p>My advice would be to see your GP either way and let him/her check you over to get to the route of this problem as dizziness can be a symptom of so many things....none of them anything to be frightened of though I hasten to add.</p><p> </p><p>Thank you for your question and if there is anything else which I haven't covered I will be happy to do so. I have sent you a detail request message which should enable you to get back to me without further charge.</p><p> </p><p>Please may I ask that if you are happy with my answer, could you be kind enough to click on the accept button? The reason I ask is that although you have already paid your deposit, if the answer isn't accepted we don't get our percentage. Thank you so much.</p><p> </p><p>Love Mel.X</p>
