Sorry you went through it. First time, stood up and did a face plant on the carpet, landing on my nose. Ouch!! If I had been at my house, it would have been hard wood floors, so I was thankful I wasn't at home!!! Now I just stand up carefully and it hasn't been too bad. The random ones while walking down hallways is where I look drunk.
You sound like me...for yrs. until they finally gave me an idea of what was up. I was having what I call, woozy head. It comes and goes. Nothing, they could do nothing! They didn't know what was up. Yes, I was low on iron..even got iron shots for a while. Now, I take a capsule of Vit. B with iron..every day. Works good for the tired feeling, but, still have the woozy head come and go. This last time lasted three weeks.
I was at an ENT for something else, but mentioned this horrible symptom. He says, let's do some tests. What? There are tests? After all these yrs..yes. Long story short after many different kinds of tests...I have less fluid in my left ear than the right. A significant amount less. Well then, that explains a lot. Why in the world it comes and goes when there is always less..is beyond me. And them. They just told me that I will have .. bouts with it. Well, I had already had those bouts for yrs. So I knew that already.
If you are having dizzy spells after standing up real quick..you have probably already had you BP checked.
