1. No

4. good

5.blood pressure medication (do not remember name - bottle at home - believe it begins with an "N")

6.only a colonoscopy on 4/30/10

I have not seen a doctor yet.

Thanks for all the additional details. Having gone through your descriptions, this problem does not seem to be related to the colonoscopy. Theoretically there could be many possibilities for such a problem, but in our case I think that the doctor may want to consider this possibility:

Orthostatic hypotension

Kindly have a look at this web resource which provides authentic details and might be helpful to you:

Having said that, I think that your doctor may also want to rule out BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) and cervical spondylosis.

Please discuss these issues with your doctor, as it might help.

I hope that this information helps answer your query. Please feel free to inquire if you have any remaining concerns/ doubts, as it shall be a privilege and a pleasure to try and help as much as I can. Best wishes.
