I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
Your blood pressure is not that high to cause dizziness.
Your fasting blood sugar is also normal.
However, you do have sinus congestion.
This can cuse dizziness commonly as sinuses are air spaces meant to lighten the head weight.
When tey are congested the balance may be affected.
Besides, acute labyrinthitis inflammation of the inner ear balance organ will not be seen from the outside.
The diagnosis is made by presumption when non other conditions present.
Other possibilities can be cardiac arrhythmia --you should at least feel some palpitations, or a stroke --dizziness should be worsening progressively even if no other symptom present.
I have a murmer.. but that has never been an issue.
ok murmur is often benign.
I did a baseline EKG several years ago, nothing special
However, a worsening murmur can be suggestive of heart valve problem.
an echocardiogram should be consider to investigate a murmur.
ok, how long to put up with this before I seek additional attention? opinion of course.
you can try a decongestant like sudafed 60 mg every 6 hours to see how you fare over next 2-3 days.
If no signs of improvement, then you should see your doctor.
fair enough. thanx! I'll give it a shot and see if it improves. Since there are no other symptoms, ie. racing heart/radiating pain or palpitations.. I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX is heart related.. just very annoying is all :/
yes i understand.
Does not sound alarming currently.
