    Hey,

    I feel really dizzy especially when I stand up for the last two days. I have a throbbing headache as well and it comes and goes. Also, my ears are ringing and I have moments of having double vision. I have no idea what's wrong with me. My doc. hasn't a clue, she just says it's nothing serious as do my family blah blah. But it doesn't seem like normal flu etc. especially the headache and dizziness!
    Has anyone else had these symptoms before or may know what could be wrong with me??
    Any advice/help is greatly appreciated!!

    It's probably anaemia. My friend had the same symptoms and went for blood test that day. It turned out that his blood lacks haemogoblin or something like that. Can't really remember. Consult another doctor and consume some iron tablets.(Don't quote me on that,ask doctor before doing this!)

    It's not a serious case. No worries.

    Yeah it could be anaemia or it could be low blood sugar or even flu. Id give another few days to see if any new symtoms appear then go back to your GP.

    Well, are you sure you've had enough rest? Have you slept well, eaten well and had no other mental pressures?? If the doctor couldn't get a clue, I guess, perhaps, you're tired of your study or worried about sth or even have too much stress. Try to relax some time and not be too serious about yourself. You should know a sound body is based on a sound mind. Right?

    Thanks! I'm just waiting for another doc to call me at the moment. My head isn't so much throbbing it just feels like an odd type of headache I'm basically just lying down as this makes the dizziness go away but as soon as I get back up it returns. I'm so frustrate!

    Could be an inner ear problem - sounds typical to me. Go and see your doctor again (or ask to see another one) as they will be able to do the right clinical examination to be able to determine what's going on with you.

    Yeah I was thinking an inner ear problem too as this affects balance

    Aw thank you :top: That's really nice of you to say! I'm probably just totally overreacting. It's just obviously it's horrible being ill and I'm starting uni in a few weeks and I certainly don't wanna be sick then! Plus, it's incredibly frustrating when everyone (family and doc.) dismiss you as being a hypochondriac when there really is something wrong with you!

    No, you're not overreacting! I would be worried as well, and would also be upset if my family didn't understand.

    I used to have this, and the doc said it was caused by low blood pressure. I am very tall and used to be very willowy, when I stood up it'd take ages for the dizziness and headaches (is it on either side of your head, a sort of throbbing?) to die down. I also used to get white spots in my eyes and feel light headed. However, some of my symptoms were definitely caused by me being anaemic, which was stopped by taking iron tablets daily.

    Thanks. The doc. doesn't think it's anything serious. She thinks it is morethanlikely a middle/inner ear infection virus thingy. Hence the dizziness, headache and ringing of the ear. So I'm not entirely sure why I'm having the scan lol. Oh well, I'll have it gotten and done by the beginning of next week she said so

    The MRI is probably completely routine and very unlikely to show up anything scary

    Tbh, they sound like classic low BP symptoms, which I've had plenty of experience with :rolleyes: Stay well hydrated, eat properly, and sit and stand up very slowly!
