Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Do you just have the dizziness when you get up and begin walking around, or is it all the time you are on your feet?
Thanks so much.
Your diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) is a little low and that is the most likely reason for the dizziness. The top number and pulse rate are within normal ranges. It isn't at a serious low, but enough to cause symptoms in some people.
When you have been sitting down it is important to get up gradually. Sit on the edge of the chair for a minute. Then slowly stand up and hold onto something for another minute. Only then should you being to walk around, always making sure there is something to hold onto.
You need to contact your cardiologist who may want to change your medications slightly so this isn't an issue for you long term.
Please let me know if you have questions.
