Fibro - Dizzy spells?

Dec 25, 2016 8:19 PM

Does anyone else get dizzy spells from fibro? I have been having these all week. I stand up and feel like the ground is coming up to meet me. It's so irritating because sometimes it's just a slight imbalance and I can't tell if I'm actually off or if I'm just crazy...

Anybody have advice for this? Should I be concerned or is this just normal fibro stuff?

Sounds like you have vertigo so you may want to book an appointment with your Dr to get some medication for it. It might not be related to your fibro and be caused by the meds one of your meds your or the mixture of meds you're on, one of the side affects of meds or mixtures of meds is vertigo like symptoms but it's best to get it checked out plus you Dr can give you something to help.

I hope you find some relief soon.
I'm sending you positive vibes and warm healing hugs xx

Dizzyness is a symptom of fibro and it's very annoying.I have dizzy spells everyday and no you're not crazy.When I go to bed at night and close my eyes it feels like the bed is spinning.My husband has to hold my arm because I get dizzy walking.If I turn my head real fast I get dizzy.

Hi. It can be part of fibro but can be vertigo as well so if it's new to you I suggest you see your doctor to see why it's happening. It could also be POTS which is a postural imbalance. Or low BP. For ur piece of mind I think you should see your dr to rule out what it's not. Hope that makes sense.
