Often Dizziness when Standing? Watch out, it could be a heart problem!

Suara.com – Most people feel dizzy when they stand up. Usually this condition is associated with dehydration or fatigue from overheating.

However, recurring dizziness can signal heart problems such as postural tachycardia syndrome (PoTS), which is an abnormal increase in heart rate that occurs after sitting or standing.

According to Dr Sara, this condition can be very debilitating for a person. Dr Sara confirmed that there is someone who overcomes dizziness when standing with a medication. But, there are other drugs that can also help reduce his heart rate.

“Midodrine and fludrocortisone can both help treat this condition, but not everyone is given this drug until a doctor has clearly diagnosed the health problem,” said Dr Sara. Express.
