I was standing up turning a screw and I looked down to get a screw driver. I became very dizzy and a feeling of things moving. I barely got to the couch to sit down. I was very hot and felt sick to my stomach.

I have had my gallbladder removed. It's been almost a year now and every day I am sick and get dizzy. I get the shakes so bad I have a hard time.

A week ago I became a bit dizzy, and then it was followed by nausea. I am not pregnant and am quite concerned.

I am a patient with high blood pressure. I am on drugs bendroflumethiazide 2.5mg, Atenolol 100mg, Zestril (lisinopril dehydrate) 5mg (7.5mg). I have been on these drugs for a while now. I had this feeling of lightheadedness which had gone but now I am having it every day which makes me want to pass out. Sometimes my mid heart is very heavy and painful but not my left side. Sometimes I will sweat profusely and stop. It happens at any position.

I worked up about 4AM, used the toilet and headed back to bed. As I put my head down on my pillow, I felt as if I was going to faint, my head felt very light. I tested my blood pressure and the reading was 141/95.

I am a 50 year old female and I have had lightheadedness and pressure on my head, mostly the back part of my head and I am off balance. I get vibrations from my voice. I'm on Serc which helps with the dizziness. I've been like this for almost a year now and haven't been diagnosed with anything. I've had 2 MRI and a CT scan and my brain and ears are fine.
