Ok.. earlier at work I blew my nose and felt very dizzy for some time afterwards.

Hi there,

How can I help you with this issue?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well..why did I feel dizzy ?
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 1 year ago.

Blowing your nose lets the pressure in your sinuses rise as well as your blood pressure. This might hav brought the dizziness. If you havn't checked your blood pressure for a longer period please do that within the next days.

Should I still be feeling. ... groggy roughly 12 hours after it happened ?
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 1 year ago.

No, you shouldn't. Do you?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not too badly. But I've felt better !
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 1 year ago.

Did you have your blood pressure checked lately? Do you have flu symptoms?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No to both questions.
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. Please have your BP checked, the dizziness might be a sign of high BP. It may be a simple viral infection, too. You will see.
