Dizzy when sitting still?


I know standing too fast can cause light-headedness.
But what about when you are sitting still?

I've been at my desk have been eating and drinking normal amounts but I just feel really out of it in my head... kind of dizzy kind of light-headed.

I don't think there is really any chance of me being anemic as I always have fabulous iron levels, even after a heavy 26 day period.

Has your blood pressure been low? Maybe try to prop up your feet a little when you start feeling dizzy. I used to prop my feet on a little decorative pillow on top of the hard drive under my desk. Now at work I just sit in one of our recliners and put my feet up because I don't have a desk and am on my feet for 12 hours. Hope you feel better quickly. Have you felt warm or faint with being dizzy?

ooh, you have recliners? lol.. I'd totally end up taking a nap and getting fired if I had those.

I'm at my desk, I'll try the putting my feet up thing.
I've always had normal blood pressure (except when I was stressing out about TTC and then it was high).
I don't feel warm or cool... just kind of dizzy/funny in the head. Like a dizziness but almost like that feeling in your head when you are sick and just blew your nose really hard.

I drank some juice about 20 minutes ago in case it was a blood sugar thing or dehydration but no improvement.


The only time I've ever fainted in my life was when I was dehydrated.. I remember a cold feeling but that was literally moments before I blacked out.

I had my blood pressure checked by my acupuncturist yesterday, it was 130/82... a little high for me, but not outrageously high.
My dizziness went away when I ate something after getting home from work, but when I lay down on the acupuncture table I got super dizzy for a second (that seems normal position/change dizziness though I think).

So far, not bothering me any today so I'll just keep an eye on it... thanks for the help yesterday!

my sense of balance was fine, so I'm not sure mine was related to the inner ear... it was just a funny floaty sensation.. hard to describe...

Are you on BP meds at all? I started getting dizzy when I was 7 weeks and had to stop my BP meds. Pregnancy hormones can make your BP go down.
