What causes Dizzy spells?

What can cause a dizzy spell. Ive been sitting at my desk all morning. When I stood up the room started spinning. I can't even walk straight. What can it be? I was fine up to this point. Im sitting down and it wont stop.

it could probably the lack of blood flow to you head, every now and then stand up so that the blood can flow to every part of your body properly

sometimes high blood preasure. Heres what I would do take your thumb and your forfinger and right at the bridge of your nose between your eyebrows, pinch and hold preasure there. you will feel a strange feeling come over you keep holding for awhile oh and keep your eyes closed when you do this. after you let go do not open your eyes for about a minute then open your eyes you will feel beter. let me know how you feel

It happens when you sit, lay and you relax, heart rate drops and then you suddenly stand up and are active. Or could be some other factor, go outside, get some fresh air and get some water.

Lack of oxygen to your brain. Lack of sugar in your blood. This doesn't mean I Snickers bar. An orange would be better for natural sugar. Lack of sleep. A great pillow and clean sheets are good for this. Some of these simple ideas may help dizziness go away. For whatever the reason, you do need to see a doctor. The brain is not something you want to mess around with! :) I hope you feel better.

Darlene, that is an excellent observation. I knew that, but it didn't even cross my mind to suggest that may be the problem. Well Done.
