Cannot Stand Up For More Than 10 Minutes?
Doctor, I am Dewi Rizquna, 17 years old, female, 163 cm TB, BB 48 kg. I have a history of heartburn from childhood. And I lack control over my daily eating schedule, because I am in college and not at home. Every time I buy food and stand in line while standing, if I start 10 minutes, I immediately go limp. Head feels heavy and dizzy, blurred vision, a bit dark and dizzy, difficult to walk and breathe. Is this really because of an ulcer? The problem is that every time I haven’t eaten and want to buy, when I queue there is no place to sit, it always does. Arriving at the cottage, I went straight to the room, lay down, and struggled. Please clarify 🙇🏻 u0026zwj; ♀️Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Limp, head feels heavy, dizzy, dark and blurry, dizzy, difficult to breathe, and lost balance, especially when standing long, most often indicates orthostatic hypotension or low blood pressure due to the influence of the position opposite to the direction of gravity. This condition can occur because the failure of the heart compensates for the accumulation of blood in the lower body during sudden changes in body position, thereby making blood flow to the brain decrease. Not only as you feel, orthostatic hypotension can also make sufferers sweat cold, palpitations, and even almost lose balance in more severe cases.
In addition to orthostatic hypotension, your complaints may also indicate dyspepsia (or often called heartburn), anemia, dehydration, hypoglycemia, cardiac weakness, valve or heart rhythm disorders, lack of exercise, hormonal disorders, viral or bacterial infections, vertigo, head injuries , brain tumors, cerebral aneurysms, migraines, electrolyte balance disorders, psychological disorders, drug side effects, alcoholism, and so on.
Although not always dangerous, this condition should still be examined directly by a doctor or internist. Especially if the occurrence has been repeated very often. Follow-up examinations, such as heart records, laboratory tests, X-rays, and so on may be done by your doctor so that you can provide the most appropriate treatment.
What needs to be done now is:
Regularly exercise every day, at least for 30 minutes the percentage, especially aerobic exercise If you want to change body position, do it slowly, while holding on, ask for help from those around you if you need to drink 2-3 liters of water a day, especially water Don't smoke or consume alcohol Do not also take any drugs Eat regularly variations of balanced nutritious food, small portions but often Sleep early 6-8 hours a day Hope it helps yes ..
