I have dizziness occasionally too, and I'm only 82. Hot weather seems to make it worse. I find it helps to take a few deep breaths before getting up out of my chair. I've also had general weakness which was helped when my doc changed my meds, he says some meds are good for several years but then give trouble. Good luck!

Had these symptons also.two months ago I started with a some burning and pain in my neck and throat,thought it was heartburn. went to the Doc. tuesday.Did an EKG and said get to the ER immediately,AFIB,took 7 hours to get heart back in rhythym,catherization (wednesday)revealed right coronary artery 99% blocked. it two hours to open it up and put in a stent and I'm home today feeling great. Best to get checked rather than check out.

Though I too am not a doc, it sounds maybe like a basic case of Orthostatic Hypotension (or Postural Hypotension)......basically a condition in which your blood pressure falls significantly when you stand or sit up quickly. There are a bunch of causes, one of which is aging (it is more common in order people).

You can read more about it here: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/healt...ic-hypotension along with how your doctor can diagnose/test for it and also some proposed management and treatments.

Ask your doctor however....else you might end up in one of these:

I just went through the same thing. Went to my Cardiologist blood pressure up. Prescribed a stronger Beta Blocker. Back to normal. Back when I first found I had blood pressure problems I went through the same symptoms. My advice—-don’t wait for the next checkup get to a doctor—NOW!!
