I have been having a throbbing head when I rise to stand and walk from a sitting position.. The throb lasts for several minutes. The throb is strong so that I can't walk. I have to let it subside. There really isn't any pain other than the throb and I notice that my hearing gets muffled. If I sit down the throbbing stops; but if I stand up the throbs starts again. I do drink enough water and take vitamins. What can cause this condition? Thanks.
Hi, please do consult doctor; this could be due to autonomic neuropathy, space occupying lesion in brain, carotid lesion, vestibulopathy etc. Please get yourself investigated, blood pressure in sitting and supine position should be checked.
