When You Lie On Your Back....
Posted 11 August 2006 - 12:49 AM
For as long as I can remember I have not been able to lie on my back. I get very dizzy and feel just plain awfull. I never really put it together untill now, but I tried doing workouts lying down in hopes that I would be able to............umm no, big misstake.
I was just wondering if I'm alone in this? I find it very wierd myself. I can lay on my back if I'm at an angle, but if I'm flat..forget it.

Other than that, I can't help you. Sorry about your problems.

when you say "lying down at an angle" do you mean with your head raised? have you been able to do stuff (activities like exercise or just reading or whatever) in this position?
i certainly hope you are able to get some answers....there's a lot of folks on the forum with good ideas and advice. feel better quick!!
love and light,

I feel better lying down, but when I first lay down I feel the most horrible of all and think I am going to die and the only thing I can think is that I am so glad I am now going to die. But, then about 6 minutes later it all washes away and I feel better. The change of position is super-brutal for me. Something happens. When I have been at my ultimate sickest, I cannot stay sitting or laying for more than 20 seconds each at a time. We've found that my BP hovers near zip at these times.
Have you taken your Blood Pressure when lying? I wonder if it is too high, too low?

I just don't lay that way at all. (I've had shoulder surgery, in April, and I can't seem to heal from it, so I can't lay flat and I can't lay on my right side either!!!! ARGH!!!)
I've often wondered what it's all about myself. It's a bummer that there doesn't seem to be some magic answer, you know??

I get dizzy if my head is flat and I'm on my back, but I'm ok if I have a pillow under my head. It's all the time, doesn't go away after any length. As far as I can remember I have not been able to lay on my back since I got all the other symptoms(POTS). I don't have any problems with infections in my ears or anything. (I wonder if this has anything to do with getting migraines?)
Oh, and my daughter is doing well. I think she was just feeling ill when I was worried about her. I will keep my eyes open of course and keep watch on any symptoms.
