my 11 year old DD has been having dizzy spells lately, often when she stands up quickly, but sometimes just sitting or laying down. She also sometimes gets headaches.

Am taking her to the Dr. today, but am wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Am also trying to stay calm but am a bit freaked out about this.

She was anemic and then she started her periods (at 11.5)

Be all well

and I think it is worse if you are tall, which I am. I don't get it while lying or sitting down though

I think its to do with change of pressure and I do have blood pressure that is on the low side.

hope your niece gets on ok at doctors.

could be as little as being anemic or simply dehydrated.

When I was young, if I stood too quickly, I'd get a head rush and see black but it passed quickly. I think I was dehydrated--I rarely peed at school and I know now that I was dehydrated. and if I get dehydrated now, I sometimes have head-rushes like that and coincidentally had my blood pressure taken once when slightly dehydrated and it was low--so from then on I made sure I drink enough.
as a kid, I was also not eating enough fruits and vegetables and I think it played a part.
I also started my AF when I was twelve. Maybe it had something to do with it but heck, I've been blaming my AF for everything since then. LOL

keep us posted.

Started over a year ago and random. Sometimes he was just sitting there and it would happen. He had a CT scan first and neuro exams normal. The pedi neuro says this is common with migraines. Kids don't necessarily get headaches with migraines. But since your DD has headaches too, that might be what is happening. It scared me though and definitely needs to be addressed.

pretty much all her life. Hers is a migraine variant, and that might be what is going on with yours. Migraines, though, seem to be "what's left" when other things have been ruled out. I hope you get some answers quickly.

and could be related to migraines. DD gets mild headaches and motion sickness, and ped says these are often related. The meds for vertigo are apparently for those 12+, so she suggested Dramamine for a week to see how it goes. If not better in a week, then we have to have additional tests, but it does make sense to me that it is related to the motion sickness issues she has. We started on the dramamine and it was better yesterday.

A friend suggested I get those wristbands for her to wear, so I may check those out as well.

Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences. It helped me a lot.

I would suggest to check her ears too.

these symptoms could appear when something like water put pressure in the ear.

Be well,

Adee

glad the dramamine is helping.

I always jump to the worst case so I am relieved to see this update
