  • Ask The Doctor: Dizziness

    Absolutely it could. If springing to your feet causes you to feel light-headed, see black or white spots, or nearly keel over, you may have orthostatic hypotension. Put simply, orthostatic hypotension—orthostatic means “standing upright” and hypotension means “low blood pressure”—is the body’s temporary inability to adjust to changes in gravity.

    I’ve been experiencing dizziness lately. Could it be a problem with my blood pressure?
