  • Whenever I get up to quickly I have the same issues. If I slow down it works a little bit better.

  • Talk to your doctor about Meniere's disease. It is a disease that keeps you from processing salt correctly and salt crystals for on the inner ear and effect balance.
    Also could you have a misalignment in your spine? A chiropractor would be able to help with that.

  • Is your blood pressure too low? (or does it drop a lot when you stand - that's called orthostatic hypotension) Are you eating enough salt? Are you dehydrated? Any of those can also cause dizziness,
