The Head Feels Dizzy When Lying Down And The Heart Beats Fast?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. Why does the head feel dizzy when lying down and will change positions? This condition is accompanied by a rapid heartbeat but not for a long time (around 10-15 seconds). For example the heart beats fast, then back to normal, the time span is about a few hours later after the heart beats fast before. Thank you doctor, hopefully my question is not confusing.

Feeling dizzy head conditions can be defined as loss of balance, giddiness, or dizzy head. Dizziness can be caused by several possible causes, including:
Impaired balance system (BPPV / vertigo).
Infections in the balance regulating system, such as labyrinthitis.
Disorders of blood circulation, such as hypotension or hypertension.
Post-trauma to the head / head injury.
Glucose deficiency conditions.
Red blood cell deficiency / anemia.
Orthostatic hypotension, a condition in which the sufferer feels dizzy when moving from sitting or lying down. Impaired body response adjusts blood pressure due to sudden changes in position.
Conditions where there is a moment of dizziness in sudden changes in the position of the head such as lying down to sitting or sitting to a standing position can be caused by impaired blood pressure adjustment when there is a change in head position. This can cause a brief sensation of dizziness accompanied by palpitations as compensation for the body's efforts to pump blood to the head area and restore blood pressure balance. However, caution must be taken when these symptoms persist and palpitations are accompanied by chest pain that feels pressing, piercing and penetrating to the back of the chest or spreading to the shoulders and arms. It is advisable to check with your doctor first for an examination and management in accordance with your current condition. Physical examination can be done and supporting or referral to a specialist if deemed necessary after the results of the examination.
Avoid activities too heavy, avoid changing positions suddenly, do enough eating, rest enough. Avoid taking medication alone without instructions and consulting a doctor first.
Hopefully this information helps you,
