Dizzy Head Rotates When Changing Positions?
Hello I want to ask why if you want to sleep and want to tilt to the left the head rotates and the pillow position is already high … Blood pressure 160/90 how to overcome it … Thank you in advance
Hello Aprillia, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Dizziness when a position change can be caused by several things:
1. Peripheral vertigo (BPPV: Benign Positional Peripheral Vertigo): ie vertigo or dizziness due to changes in the position of particles in the ear. This change in position causes a disturbed balance and complaints of spinning dizziness. Before dizzy spinning usually begins with complaints of nausea to vomiting. This spinning dizziness is usually triggered by changes in body position, for example from standing to sleep and vice versa, and is triggered by crowds, noise and blazing sunlight.
2. Central vertigo: vertigo due to abnormalities in the brain such as the blockage or abnormalities in the brain in the part that regulates balance or the cerebellum.
3. Headaches due to secondary causes, for example an infection in the brain that can cause complaints such as spinning dizziness.
4. Other causes such as abnormalities in organs that regulate body balance such as eyes, skin, and others.
To find out more about the diagnosis of your complaint, you should check with the nearest neurologist.
Things you can do to reduce spinning headaches when you go to sleep or change positions, include:
1. When going to make a change in position, you should give a moment about 3-5 minutes to be quiet so that changes in the head and ears that affect the balance of the body can work well first.
2. Avoid crowded places and noise because it will trigger dizzy spinning
3. Avoid blazing sunlight because it will trigger dizziness too
4. Take antivertigo medication as directed by your doctor
Blood pressure 160/90 is a high blood pressure. Normal blood pressure is blood pressure below 120/80 mmHg.
High blood pressure can cause several complaints such as dizziness, headaches, weakness, chest pain, and so on. High blood pressure can also cause complications to various organs and bodily functions such as causing strokes, heart attacks, kidney disorders and so on.
To overcome high blood pressure should begin with improving lifestyle such as
1. reduce eating salty and fast food,
2. increase exercise at least 3 times a week, for 30 minutes each time you exercise
3. Avoiding stress or burdensome thoughts
4. Get enough rest 6-8 hours per day
After lifestyle changes are not able to reduce high blood pressure, you should consult a specialist in internal medicine to get the right treatment. Do the doctor's advice and take medicine according to the doctor's recommendations.
Thus, hopefully useful :)
