Feeling like I am going to pass out when standing up.

5 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I have been feeling dizzy for quite some time now, when I go from a horizontal position to standing. But lately, I feel like I am going to pass out all together. Is this a symptom of Scleroderma or possibly Antiphosphilid Syndrome?

Thanks for your help :)

Seton,

I have no idea what it is or what's causing it, but you indicate that it is getting worse rather than going away, so please call your rheumatologist or primary care physician. If you have an urgent care in the area, I would go there. You don't want it to get so bad that you do actually pass out.

 

Please see a doctor and let us know what you find out.

 

Big Hugs,

Are you on any blood pressure medication for Raynaud's?

It sounds like low blood pressure, I was that way on norvasc, trental, and a million other things.

Hi Seton,

 

It's nice to hear from you again, but I'm really sorry you are having problems with dizziness. I'm with Janey - I'd get it checked out.

Hi Seton ,

 

My son has Othostatic Hypotension.....his blood pressure drops when standing. Medications can cause this, too. I hope you get it checked out.

 

Take care, Everyone.
