I am 40 years old male 5'6" 170lb. Last year, I had a dizziness feelings with whirling sensation in head and sweating in body. I was ok after 5-10 minutes. I did not lose consciousness. Same thing happened this week. It started with whirling sensation in the head and after that I lie flat on floor. The whirling or vertigo was strong with body temperature low with lot of perspiration and weakness. It lasted for about 5 minutes. When it happened last time, I had a physical checkup and everything was normal including sugar, cholesterol etc. I was 180lb at that time and I did lose weight after doing physical exercises and restriction on diet. I only eat vegetarian food.
Recently I gained again 5-8 lb of weight and currently I am not on physical exercises. I do work hard and mostly I sit before computer 8-12 hours a day with very little physical exercises.
During last one year on couple of time, I had very minor whirling sensation in the head but it did not turn up nasty as it did this week.
I plan to again get physical checkup done but this second episode has made me concerned about my health. I did not had any medical problems in past and my family history do not have any diabetes. My father has only high blood pressure problem. My blood pressure used to be over 130/90 but I have controlled it within 120/80 by a regular 1 hour meditation from last one year. During this vertigo, my blood pressure was 150/103 as measured by my friend.
Thanks for your time to read this and for providing some help.
