Overcoming Legs Not Strong, Standing For A Long Time And Almost Fainting?
Excuse me, I want to ask, why have I been standing too long (when facing him) I like to suddenly feel dizzy, nauseous, my vision becomes blurry, and almost always faints. How to fix this? Thank you
When standing for too long, the force of gravity will cause blood to collect in the lower body (legs). The accumulation of blood at the bottom will lower blood pressure and reduce blood flow to the heart which can automatically reduce blood flow to the brain. Decreased blood flow to the brain can cause these symptoms of dizziness and fainting. Normally, the body will compensate by increasing the heart rate and constricting blood vessels. But in certain circumstances, dizziness can still occur because the regulation of blood pressure regulation is disturbed.
The circumstances that cause this include:
Dehydration / lack of fluids, especially if standing in hot places
Previously low blood pressure
Hypovolemia (decreased blood volume)
Heart problems in pumping blood
Effects of drugs
Besides anemia, low blood sugar, fatigue, too long lying down, old age can also cause dizziness when standing. To find out the real cause, of course, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor. Given that this incident has often happened, it's a good idea to see a doctor. The doctor will check your blood pressure and perform a physical exam. If necessary, the doctor will also perform blood tests or other related examinations.
If you are required to stand for a long time, you should make sure you are in good health. Get enough rest, eat a balanced nutritional diet, get enough fluids so you don't get dehydrated. Regular exercise can train your physique. Use protection such as a hat if you have to stand in hot areas. If you are not strong and feel sick, you should get some rest immediately.
