Frequent Dizziness, Dark Vision, Loss Of Balance When Waking Up From Sleep?
I want to ask, so I’m always dizzy, dark eyes, unbalanced, and depressed. The incident happened when I woke up from sleep.
Hello Elin, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Symptoms such as dizziness, loss of balance, dark eyesight that occur when you wake up from sleep are most likely due to orthostatic hypotension. Orthostatic hypotension is a condition of temporary drop in blood pressure that occurs due to a change in position (usually from sitting or sleeping to a standing position). Orthostatic hypotension can be caused by many possibilities, including:
Heart disorders such as heart failure, heart rhythm disorders, heart valve disorders, etc. Disorders of the endocrine system, such as adrenal hormone deficiency, diabetes insipidus, hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, etc. Electrolyte disorders Side effects of certain drugs Excessive alcohol consumption Other causes such as anemia, dehydration, pregnancy, post heavy blood loss, etc. Psychiatric disorders such as anxiety disorders, panic attacks, eating disorders, etc.
Some other possibilities that can cause symptoms similar to orthostatic hypotension include:
postprandial hypotension (hypotension that occurs after eating) vasovagal syncope, neurocardiogenic syncope, and other reflex syncope postural tachycardia syndrome, which is the occurrence of symptoms such as dizziness, weakness accompanied by an increase in heart rate (no drop in blood pressure) when standing Chronic orthostatic intolerance , namely the occurrence of symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting that occurs when standing for a long time
If you experience these symptoms very often, it's a good idea to check with your doctor to find out with certainty the cause. The doctor can perform blood tests, electrolytes, blood sugar, thyroid hormones, heart record examination (EKG), ultrasound of the heart (echocardiography), etc. to help make a diagnosis.
Some of the things you can do right now:
Make sure you drink an adequate amount every day (at least 2-3 liters a day) Prepare a drink at your bedside, drink it before you get out of bed and rest a sufficient amount, exercise regularly in sufficient intensity, do exercise at least 30-40 minutes a day Before you get up from the bed, try to sit for a while, stand while holding on until your dizziness is gone. Limit alcohol consumption. Eat enough balanced nutritious foods, don't go on a too strict diet
So much information from me, hopefully you will answer
