lightheaded standing up/bending over
« on: March 30, 2011, 07:19:12 PM »
Anxiety symptoms???? When I stand up or sit up from laying down my heart beats a lot faster and I get lightheaded. Even when bending over to pick up something it happens.

Does this happen to anyone else? Happens nearly all the time.

Happens to me a lot, too!  I also get lightheaded when I am kneeling for a period and stand up suddenly!  Just happened to me this morning at work, ugggh! :angry:

It's not what's happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it's your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you're going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.

It's called "orthostatic hypotension" or "postural hypotension".

I've had it my whole life because I have naturally low blood pressure. If it's not causing you to pass out and your doctor has determined there is nothing underlying that is causing it then it's not anything to stress about. (Ha, easier said than done, right?)

I always make sure to get up slowly if I've been sitting for a long time. I sit back down for a second if I get tunnel vision or dizzy, then slowly get back up again. It's worse when I'm tired, dehydrated, not eating well, etc.

I get this when I stand up too quickly. It seems to go hand in hand with the little stars that you sometimes see when you stand up too fast. My vision will sort of go dark, and than about 10 seconds later I'll come back to feeling normal. I'm pretty sure everyone gets this, anxiety or not. It's completely normal.

I know everyone can get them ONCE IN A WHILE, I get them almost every damn time! Its starting to get debilitating. I got a cardiologist appt in a couple weeks, maybe i'll find out something then.

I've had this all my life.  A doctor told me it was low blood pressure.

Like others have said... can be low blood pressure. I get this a lot when I'm bending over cleaning the litterbox and I stand up quickly.
