Has anybody had this ? Strange dizziness and weird feeling

Posted , 15 users are following.

I managed to pull myself together and go out ‘for an  hour’  and for ‘one drink ‘ home by 9pm as I’m screwed if I don’t go to bed early .

I got a dizziness when I arrived home that was so weird thought I was going to faint ... not like vertigo at all  . I then proceeded to feel ‘weird’ even when in bed and had to take 1/2 Xanax as was panicky . Almost like my mind had been taken over . 

Wondered if anybody else had this ? Was I dehydrated or is this just another meno symptom ?

    I used to get that a lot. I had a few different types of dizziness for a while. One was related to anxiety...another was a middle ear thing. Did the Xanax take it away?

    And the other type of dizziness I had was hot flash related

    So dizziness during peri, for me...was an everyday thing forba long time in one form or another. I still get all of it...but much less frequently these days

      Yes the Xanax put me asleep thank God I went to a very dark place mentally after this episode . Thought I was going to vomit... literally felt ill . I had only one drink and didn’t finish it ..... but had done a big workout before so maybe I was dehydrated . Anyway it’s awful and sure all to do with hormones dipping 🙄

      Yes, Lori, too much lately. I was NEVER one to vomit. Can't tell you how many times it's happened over the last year. Sometimes it's in the evening, after a few beers. Sometimes it's in the afternoon. I drink at least a gallon of water a day. Can't believe it's dehydration! Maybe? With this menopause hell who knows??? Hope you're feeling better. Hugs!

    Can you try to describe yourself? I have had weird " dizziness" on and off for a year and a half now although it has improved tremendously. Drinking makes mine worse. It cause awful anxiety. I take a low rise of slow release Xanax . Seen lots of Drs. Long story.

    Hi Lori - Did it feel like a fuzzy feeling in your brain?  I often refer to it as “having my brain sucked out” I often thought mine was just caused from Brain Fog, but I now think it has something to do with a hot flash/flush.  I also feel like my blood sugar also dips when this happens - Oy Vey!

      Hi Lori - I think it’s all part of a hot flash/flush & for me, it’s like my body gets short circuited for a bit - I generally have to go lay down after it happens cause I feel “woozy” and yes, have felt nauseous afterwards.

      Debra - this is exactly how I would describe the flash/flush I had this week. I had two of them this week and had to lay down - no choice. Felt faint but not faint - hard to describe. Was so thankful I was at home!

    Hi Lori

    I've had loads of different types of dizzy over the years. The one that makes me faint is generally low blood pressure. I get it when I stand up too fast, I get clammy and dizzy and it takes a heck of a lot of deep breaths to avoid hitting the deck. I suppose the main thing is not to be frightened (easier said than done). Maybe it was a combination of going out, bit anxious, not enough water and a drink. Keep practising the drinking 🍻 and keep your chin up, you're doing so well xx

    YES. I have heard this feeling.  It felt like I was wobbly legged, dizzy. Sick stomach but never got sick. Even in bed I felt this weirdness. 

    I was like that for a few days. It was during flu season so I panicked, as I was away from home, and thought I was getting sick. But I never got sick, I just had those weird feelings.

      I thought the exact same thing. Was it food poisoning or am I getting very ill?   Then I panicked myself more because I still had to fly home. It was a very weird feeling. When I walked I felt the wobbly legs , as I said In my previous post, but like I was not walking On the ground. Hard to explain.
