Re: HSPU and dizziness

Perhaps first consider not doing that.

Also first...consider seeing a doctor.

Re: HSPU and dizziness

yea ... ummm ... make sure you are breathing when inverted.

How did you measure your blood pressure ? Do just happen to have one of those things laying around ?

Could also be Vertigo. I have mild Vertigo and GHD sit-ups, HSPU always cause a reaction. However, I've never measured my blood pressure and don't know if it increased. As others mentioned, it's best to talk to a doctor and get checked out.

I have a device that measures your blood pressure and heart rate. They may not be the most accurate but They are good indicators.

I never heard of vertigo before, I checked it out and found that one of the symptoms is having a ringing voice in one of your ears, I have that !!, Im gonna go see a doctor tommorrow !!

How did you treat this thing ?! What kind of doctor did you see ? (neurologist) !!?

Re: HSPU and dizziness

My case is very mild and doesn't require treatment. I pay attention when doing movements that can cause the condition. When I feel an onset I just stop whatever I'm doing. I'm fine after a couple minutes.

My father and sister do get severe cases. From what they have told me, there really is no cure other than bed rest. I have been told the drug Dramamine can help the symptoms.

Re: HSPU and dizziness

I have BPPV which is positional vertigo. Any kind of inverted position or even an extreme tilt of the head will cause significant dizziness.

I just wanted to mention that dizziness caused from this particular kind of vertigo can be treated by a PT or doctor by utilizing the Epley Maneuver. Mine was cleared for years, but comes back occasionally.

It may be worth research/mentioning to your doc.
