Dizzy when standing

Lately everytime i stand, i get extremely dizzy almost to the point of passing out, even when i bend down to pick something up. I had this problem before. but it rarely happened. now its EVERYTIME i stand. its like my head goes numb, and i see blurry. Ive passed out once from this before. I used to weigh around 265 and over the passed year dropped around 105 pounds. I run everday for atleast an hour. Im still commited to losing more but its getting tough with this on my shoulders. Any help?

It sounds like your blood pressure is dropping when you stand which is called postural hypotension.. This could happen with alot of weight loss. God bless, Corey

i agree wit h the others, sounds like your BP. i used to get those same symptoms too when my BP was really low. I used to have abnormally Low BP all the time, but my Ex fixed that for me. Maybe i could send you to live with him. I guarantee your BP will shoot up sky high, lol.   Good luck- call a dr to get checked..

I had a similar experience i.e on standing up I used to get this near about black out. I searched for this symptom on net and a low BP was the most found answer. Since I was not low on BP I knew it had to be something else. I met my doc and she adviced to do a check for B12 and D3. I was surprised to see the result, it was way too low and there is was. She said that because of these vitamins I was having those symptoms. She adviced me 10 B12 injections every alternate days and D3 capsules(6000iu) once a week for 8 weeks.

Just after 3 shots my sysmptoms reduced considerable and not to say that I was pleasently surprised to see the results. Apart from this physical good I was more at ease mentally as I was worrying a worse reason behind these but thank god that was not the case.

Please get your vitamins checked, I am sure it will pleasently surprise many others.
