    What causes dizziness & blurred vision while getting up?
    A lot of the time when I get up from sitting or laying down I feel dizzy, and my vision is temporarily blurry, and I lose a bit of balance, and sometimes feel weak, and I sorta feel like I have a headache, and any quick movement hurts my head. It lasts probably about 10 seconds (varies) then I’m fine. Now I usually get up slowly & put a bit of pressure on my forehead with my hand & close my eyes cause it feels better that way.
    Any idea what’s happening here?

      you are experiencing what is called ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION you really need to look it up and see a Dr fast about it.. ppl fall and break their hips and bust their skulls and get brain bleeds ALL THE TIME because of this… they ignore the dizziness because they think they always will catch it. then one day they get up to fast and down they go.. What is happening is your blood vessels are dilating too big for your blood. Basically the container is too big for the blood. It is easily fixable but your Dr has to work you up for this.

    Heat causes blurred vision, dizziness and almost fainting?
    If it is hot, my girlfriend gets blurred vision, everything goes whitish, she gets really dizzy as if she is about to faint. On the three occasions that this has happened, she’s moved away from wherever she was to cool herself down and then has been sick. She’s not fainted any of these times but we reckon that is because she’s moved in time. Is this a common thing? Anything to help prevent it apart from moving? She does feel hot when it happens but just notices the dizzy feelings but assumes it is linked to heat. Any ideas?

      A couple of things… one, the smashing of your brain against your skull can cause transient or permanent deficits in several senses because of trauma to the brain or cranial nerves.

      The primary reason that they check the eyes in head injuries is because of the possibility of hemorrhage (brain bleeds et al.) When a blood vessel ruptures in the skull, the pressure inside the skull increases… this can put pressure on the brain but the cranial nerves seem more susceptible. There are problems with the oculomotor nerve, trochlear nerve, abducens nerve, and optic nerve… the first three control specific eye movements, the latter transmits visual information to the brain from the retina.

      Double vision would happen if one of the cranial nerves on one side was injured/disturbed causing the eyes not to move together.

      Dizziness could be visual, but is often times due to the small stones on hairs in the inner ear getting knocked loose and free floating.
