When I lie down to sleep, I feel dizzy, and feel nauseated.

Customer Question
When I lie down...

When I lie down to sleep, I feel dizzy, and feel nauseated. No, the room is not spinning, just feeling dizziness when I lie down.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I'm on blood pressure medication: lisinopril, amlodipine, carvedilol. I'm also Type 2 and I take insulin; novolog and lantus. I remember mentioning to a doctor when I went on emergency for HBP. He gave me a prescription for vertigo to take when needed.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

I just took my BP and it's okay. Also my blood sugar is okay. I had a surgery for Subdural Hematoma on June 17, 2017 at the Reston Hospital in Northern VA. My CT Scan taken on 8/24/17 and read by my Neurosurgeon on 8/28/17 was okay.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm 76, female. with tinnitus for many years, perhaps 15 or more years.

Your symptoms of dizziness on lying down are likely due to internal ear inflammation.

Following are the common causes in your age group;

1) Acoustic neuroma
2) Vestibular neuronitis
3) Inner diseases; mainly these are autoimmune disorders and may have other issues associated like arthritis.
4) Benign Paroxysmal positional vertigo.
5) Migraine
6) Meniere disease.

7) Neuropathy

8) Orthopedic disorders (cervicogenic vertigo)

Following are the investigations which will clinch the diagnosis;

1) audiometry,
2) vestibular tests.

The most commonly performed vestibular tests are as follows:

Electronystagmography (ENG)The rotating-chair test, also referred to as sinusoidal harmonic acceleration (SHA), Computerized dynamic posturography (CDP).
3) blood tests for autoimmune disorders,
4) computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

5) The saccadic test
6) The gaze test
7) Pursuit eye movements test
8) Optokinetic Nystagmus test
9) Head shake nystagmus test.
10) Positional nystagmus testing
11) Bithermal calorie test.
12) Rotating chair test.

13) An alternative to the rotating-chair test is the active head-rotation test,

14) Computerized dynamic posturography

An ENT specialist and a neurologist with a Rehab specialist in tandem are involved in the investigative work up and care.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

You are very welcome.

You may take Dimenhydrinate (Dramamine) which is likely to help.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
