Question Anybody ever ger a weird lingering dizziness that starts when you wake up?

Since this morning as soon as I got out of bed I noticed I was really dizzy and nearly stumbled to my left side a bit. As I kept still, the dizziness subsided (but didn't completely go away). Then later on while I've been at work, each time I stretched backwards in my chair (leaning head back and arms extended) then sat up again (even slowly) I felt dizzy again.

Anybody else have this before?

I can't recall this ever happening before, and last night I felt fine.

I would try and rule-out low blood pressure or inner ear infection.
Both are common and can be easily treatable.

I did eat a lot of pretzels last night and then I sleep with a fan in my face (when I wake to piss my eyes are sticking to their lids and I have cotton mouth).

I don't drink and I haven't taken any pills except some pain killers for a mild headache (Naproxen Sodium).

I'll wait a day or two. If it's not gone by tomorrow I may go to the dr.

Might be labyrinthitis, which can make you dizzy for days or weeks.

Don't think it's that as several of the symptoms don't match. I'm not feeling sick either, though I WAS sick about a month ago with a Norovirus (food poisoning), I doubt that has any correlation.

Don't use webmd.com. Whatever symptom you have is usually something fatal. Or not. Can't tell.

@OP, if it lasts longer than a few days or gets worse, see a doctor.

Let's rule some things out.

Are you posting from a space station?

Are you confident about your intake of minerals (Dilithium aside), especially potassium?

Were you drinking lots of coffee, taking stimulants (including Nootropics) before bedtime? (If so, what kind do you recommend?)

Have you tried drinking a lot more water?

Many supermarkets/drug stores have a free blood pressure testing station in them. Though if you have the funds it might be worth getting your blood pressure professionally tested, and the earlier in the morning the better. I agree with the posts above about that, and also those who advise seeing a doctor if the symptoms persist. Have you ever had blood work done? My insurance, which is pretty sad, covers that, though I have to copay for the doctor's visit.

A curious development; My girlfriend told me as soon as I got home that she was dizzy too. She had a Dr. appointment today and they told her she had high blood pressure. I don't know if there's a connection, but it is VERY strange that we both had the exact same symptoms on the same day.

Maybe you're both getting old... see if any carbon monoxide or dioxide issue in your house if you use gas/propane or other burning system to heat.

HBP might not be seen on a single try you might to try a blood pressure monitor.

She should test it on her own time and in the right conditions. Some people get whitecoat hypertension during doctor's/hospital visits (like myself), but they don't normally have what would be considered high blood pressure otherwise.

The dizziness could be environmental factors if you both got it at the same time.

Dizziness is NOT a sign of high blood pressure:

https://www.heart.org/en/health-topi...blood-pressure

If your GF was complaining about dizziness and the PCP told them it's from high blood pressure, find another doctor. The other thing, having been through this myself, if the doctors start prescribing medicine to control blood pressure get a second opinion first. There are typically dietary and exercise changes that can make a big impact on blood pressure which are much better alternatives to the various blood pressure medicines. It is also true that genetically, some people are just prone to higher blood pressures (as well as higher cholesterol numbers).

My wife had this which is how I found out about it. When her doctor said she likely had crystals loose, I literally said "WTF" in my head and Googled it during the visit. To my surprise, it was a "thing".

It started off with a little dizziness one day, and progressively go to the point you mentioned.

I have dealt with that this year and am currently (possibly forever) deaf in my left ear as a result.

At least that was the initial diagnosis by my ENT back in February when I was suffering from severe vertigo and loss of hearing in my left ear.

However...

My vertigo subsided and my hearing was coming back somewhat, but I had a second instance of it happening in late April with the vertigo being even worse and now can no longer hear at all out of that ear (but I do have constant white noise/tinnitus in that ear). Now he thinks I might have Ménière's. I even had an MRI to make sure nothing funky was going on in my head.

I currently have to watch my salt and caffeine intake. I also have a prescription for meclizine, ondesetron, and clonazepam for if I have another bout of vertigo.

Anybody else have this before?

I can't recall this ever happening before, and last night I felt fine.
It could be stress related vertigo, but you can read on the Elpley Maneuver for more info.

Oh and there's a couple of things that came to mind when I read your post:

1) You said she gets sick the moment she saw you? Does it happen anywhere else? Can it be her way of saying you're stressing the heck out of her? Is your relationship with her solid?

2) Is there a mold situation in your home?

3) Proper ventilation?
