What Illness Is In My Head?
Good afternoon .. I’m a man of 27 years old. “Before the incident happened, I initially smoked 3 cigarettes at a time without stopping, then played my cellphone while lying down, then because I wanted to urinate I woke up, when I woke up my head was shaken AND Instantly between conscious and unconscious. When I realized, I just realized that I fell down and was unconscious for a few seconds.That’s why? With the condition of my soul that still thinks of the burden of debt, worry / worry about the future because I have not been able to work.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms that you are experiencing may be caused by orthostatic hypotension. Orthostatic hypotension is a condition in which there is a decrease in blood pressure due to sudden changes in body position, usually due to standing suddenly from a sitting or lying position. Some of the symptoms that can be experienced include dizziness, lightheadedness, dark vision, weakness, fainting, nausea, confusion. These symptoms will improve by themselves in a few minutes. If this condition only happens once in a while, then you have nothing to worry about. This only happens because when you stand up from a sitting or lying position, blood will drop down quickly (due to the effects of gravity), so blood flow to the brain will decrease (so you end up experiencing the symptoms above).
Sometimes orthostatic hypotension can occur due to other triggers, such as dehydration, anemia, rapid loss of blood in a long time, long immobilization (long lying in bed), side effects of certain drugs, certain heart disorders, thyroid hormone disorders, adrenal hormone disorders, diabetes, and others.
Some things you can do to prevent this from happening again:
Avoid standing and walking suddenly after you sit or lie down, try to sit first, stand up more slowly, stand holding, then walk when you are just lying down
If you feel dizzy when you stand up, immediately find a grip or immediately sit down and lower your head or position your head lower.
Drink enough every day (at least 2-3 liters a day)
Exercise regularly (at least 30 minutes a day)
Avoid alcohol consumption
Eat enough nutritious food every day
If this condition occurs frequently, check with your doctor for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
