Customer Question
I've been experiencing standing...

I've been experiencing standing up from sitting, getting woozy ( BP) maybe, low sugar possibly, however I have tho hold onto something because I go thru leg tremors, arm tremors and other body shakes for about 45-60 secs. I have fallen many times because of this.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Have you been feeling dizzy or lightheaded?

Yes, and Monday made a week since my doc appt

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

He's got it all. This is new. Approx a monthish. No, I didn't tell him. We've been focused on my mother (throat cancer)

The symptoms you are describing are of postural or orthostatic hypotension.

In this situation blood pressure drops when a person stands up from sitting position and blood supply to brain decreases this is why there is dizziness and falls.

This has a number of reasons but most commonly this is caused by blood pressure medications.

He needs to see his doctor who would measure sitting and standing blood pressure to see if there is any drop in blood pressure or not.

His medications might need to be changed.

Let me know if you have any questions
