I want to ask, for the past few months I have often felt dizzy when I stood up after sitting, or from a lying position and kept standing, it was like a temporary blackout, my vision turned black and my head felt heavy. and usually at night I also like sudden shortness of breath, like someone is pressing my chest

Hi Nadesk. The condition you experience in general can be caused by:

1. Orthostatic hypotension where this occurs due to changes in systolic blood pressure >/= 20 mmHg in position changes where heart problems, the use of certain drugs, can increase the risk of this condition

2. Iron deficiency anemia

3. Dehydration, especially if you don't drink enough fluids

4. Thyroid disease, especially hypothyroidism

Consult your doctor about your condition for treatment and further information. A physical exam can be helpful where a blood test can help if needed. What you can do is

1. Maintain the intake of food that comes in to fit a balanced nutrition

2. Increase the consumption of water

3. get enough rest

Specific treatment depends on the underlying cause. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
