Understanding the Relationship between Dizziness, Nausea, Headaches and Tiredness

Understanding the Relationship between Dizziness, Nausea, Headaches and Tiredness post image

Dizziness, nausea, headaches and tiredness are common complaints.

Sometimes, they occur independently and have no connection to each other, but there are also many reasons why a person might suffer from headaches and tiredness or nausea and tiredness or dizziness and tiredness at the same time.

If you experience these symptoms, a little bit of investigation can lead you to the cause as well as help you develop an effective solution.

It May Be Something in the Air (Or On Your Plate)

Both headaches and tiredness are symptoms of allergies, particularly food allergies or environmental allergies. In addition, tiredness and dizziness are often connected in the same way – they are also both symptoms of allergies.

Usually, allergy medications will take care of the symptoms of seasonal allergies, but you can minimize symptoms by staying indoors as much as possible during allergy season.

You can also try an air purifier if you experience allergy symptoms indoors. If your allergy is food-related, you will need to avoid the foods that are causing the allergic reaction.

Another possibility is that you suffer from an allergic reaction to a pet in your household. You will probably know if this is the case, but blood tests can help determine specific allergens.

When you know what is causing your allergy, it will be much easier to treat it and eliminate the specific symptoms you experience.

Physical Symptoms of Stress

Stress is also a major cause of headaches and tiredness. When you are under stress, your muscles become tight, which can cause you to have chronic headaches. In addition, stress is extremely exhausting, especially when it is severe and difficult to manage.

If you suffer from chronic stress, you need to develop a strategy to manage it. Exercise, especially yoga, and some form of relaxation such as meditation or deep breathing is very helpful for dealing with stress.

If the stress is causing headaches, regular massages or visits to a chiropractor may help to loosen tight muscles in the neck and shoulders, which can contribute to headaches.

Anxiety Disorders

Dizziness and nausea are common symptoms of anxiety, another condition that can drain your energy if it becomes chronic. If you suffer from frequent anxiety, you probably notice that you feel lightheaded or dizzy when your anxiety is at its worst.

Like stress, anxiety can be managed with relaxation exercises, meditation and deep breathing exercises.

However, if you have a full-blown anxiety disorder, you will probably find that you need the help of a counselor or medical professional, at least in the beginning, in order to effectively manage your symptoms.

Blood Sugar Issues

Low blood sugar can cause dizziness and tiredness as well as nausea and tiredness. If you suffer from these symptoms often, be sure to eat at regular intervals during the day.

People with diabetes may also experience these symptoms and need to eat regularly as well. If you are a diabetic on insulin and tend to experience dizziness and fatigue, talk to your doctor about adjusting the timing or dosage of your medication.

If you have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), you also need to eat small meals every few hours in order to prevent symptoms of dizziness, nausea and tiredness from occurring.

While anyone can experience low blood sugar from time to time, people with hypoglycemia have lower than normal blood sugar levels on a regular basis. The condition is diagnosed by a glucose tolerance test, the same test used to detect diabetes (high blood sugar).

Medication Side Effects

If you take any kind of prescription or over the counter medication, check the label. The most common side effects of many medications include dizziness, nausea, headaches and tiredness.

If you suffer from such side effects and cannot do without the medication in question, try taking it before bed or at a time of day when you can sit or lie down and rest until the side effects have passed.

Also be sure to let your doctor know that you are experiencing these side effects. He or she may be able to prescribe or recommend a similar medication that does not cause the same side effects for you.

Uncovering the Cause of Your Symptoms

If you suffer from headaches and tiredness or tiredness along with dizziness and nausea frequently and are still not sure of the exact cause, it may be that there is another reason for your symptoms or that you have more than one of the conditions that can cause these symptoms to occur.
