I keep goin all light headed even wen I'm

Patient : I keep goin all light headed even wen I'm sittin down
Doctor :   Hello Thanks for writing in to us Feeling of light headedness can be due to multiple reasons following are the most co mmon causes seem in clinical practice 1. Cervical spondylosis- associated neck pain, paresthesia over upper limb, head ache radiating pain in arms. 2. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo - due to problem of inner ear, giddiness only during certain position of head. 3. Vitamin B12 deficiency- requires blood work up for level estimation. Suspected with clinical examination. 4. Heart conditions such as atrial fibrillation, blocked carotid arteries, severe atherosclerosis vertebral arteries, low blood pressure. 5. Somatic manifestation of psychological cause and requires examination by an psychiatrist. 6. Drug abuse 7. Hypoglycemia or falling sugar level common in a pre diabetic or a diabetic person. 8. Hypertension or raised blood pressure 9. Inner east infection 10. Meniere disease 11. Excessive caffeine intake My recommendation is to visit a local physician for primary survey and look for cause of giddiness as most causes can not be ruled out from history alone. I hope your query is satisfactorily answered. If there is still any doubts, feel free to discuss further. Regards
