sudden cross eye, dizziness, problems opening eyes

    
Asked by Unregistered (Female; 37; Puerto Rico; Hyperthyroidism, this month was diagnosed for the first time in my life with BP 140/90 mmHg; Relevant drugs:Tapazole, Inderal, HCT ) on Tue 23, Sep 2008 01:31pm

Hi, I'm a 37 year old female. Last week when I woke up I couldn't open my eyes. I stood up from bed, tried and tried to no use until I fell back in bed and fainted. Then three days later I was sitting down and when I stood up I started to feel dizzy and my eyes crossed. The same thing happened yesterday. Could this be a TIA? Should I go to the MD office or the ER? Help. Thank you

Hi, Orthostatic hypotension or postural hypotension is a form of hypotension in which there is a sudden fall in blood pressure that occurs when a person assumes a standing position, usually after a prolonged period of rest. Symptoms, which generally occur after sudden standing, include dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, blurred or dimmed vision, generalized numbness/tingling and fainting, and in rare, extreme cases, vasovagal syncope. They are consequences of insufficient blood pressure and blood supply.This can be treated with medication. Discuss which treatment is suited fo you with your doctor. Symptoms of a TIA vary widely from person to person, depending on the area of the brain involved. The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision; difficulty speaking; weakness on one side of the body; and numbness or tingling, usually on one side of the body. Impairment of consciousness is very uncommon. Take care and regards.
