Ok so I looked through the forum and thought that it would be best to post this in the 'nutrition' part. It fit best. From being on the forum a lot, I've realized that there are a lot of experts in a lot of subjects other than cycling. So hopefully one of you can help me.
Anyway, everyday, a lot of the times that I stand up, mostly when lying down at home, I always get extremely light headed! Even if I spend 2 minutes getting up (I've tried, slowly go from lying to sitting, then up slowly to standing), doesn't work. My vision becomes so blurry that I can't see anything around me, anything! And the world is just spinning in all directions. I have to sit back down, or kneel etc. just to get back to normal. Sometimes my legs even go numb and it feels like I have no muscle, it hurts to walk, feels like I'm waking with 1000 lbs on my shoulders.
I've done some research and found that it could be due to low blood pressure, or dehydration. Now, I drink quite a lot of water when I'm home, I have school now, but I try to drink a lot. So IMHO it cannot be dehydration.
Anyway, does anyone here experience this? And what can be done about it? Because I really hate getting light headed and it would be nice if it could stop. Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks.
