I was just looking...

I was just looking to find info on dizziness. Not often but once in a while I get a strange feeling of dizziness. It's just a wave because it doesn't last.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Just a wave of dizziness

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

Oh there's lots. I have copd, diabetes 2, and have had a triple bypass. I have controlled high blood pressure and controlled high cholesterol.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Just had my blood tests in February and they took my blood pressure then. It's well controlled.

I'm 60 years old. I've been getting these waves for about a year. I never remember to say anything to my doctor because they don't happen very often but it did happen today.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The dizzy feeling can be due to many reasons.
Fluctuation of blood pressure, glucose can cause it.
Anemia, dehydration can be factors.
On standing from sleeping posture there can be fall of blood pressure.
Heart issues, rhythm abnormalities can lead to the symptoms of dizziness.
It can occur from anxiety or stress or a neurological issues too.
BPPV or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is a common cause for vertigo & dizzy feeling.
It is due to displacement of inner ear crystals.
Repositioning can help to correct it.
I would advise to get an examination by doctor.
Till then,please try to keep well hydration by taking plenty of fluid.
Anxiety, stress needs to be avoided.
Please remain at rest when the episodes occur.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
