Freebird Posted August 6, 2019 Share #1 Posted August 6, 2019 Things have not been good for riding this year. Last year either for that matter. I've kept it quiet because I thought it was something that would just pass but I'm having some serious dizzy spells. It started a couple of years ago but is progressively getting worse. There was a time when it was only an occasional thing but had gotten to the point of several days a week and this week it has been every day and all day and night. Even when I lay down, I am still dizzy. Not tot he point that I can't function but just have to be very careful. When I got up this morning I had to be careful because immediately when I got out of bed, I was unstable. Had to be especially careful going down the stairs. If I turn my head to fast, it gets even worse. A couple of years ago, they said that I had very slight high blood pressure and put me on a blood pressure medication. Very low dose, 10 mg, but it was too much and was driving my pressure down in the 85/55 range. That made me dizzy and I though it was the problem. I started taking half of what was prescribed and most days it was ok. Now it doesn't seem to be doing the trick and my blood pressure fluctuates a good bit between 85/55 and as high as 160/100. So, I have been going to the doctor to try and get it figured out but no conclusions yet. I have another appointment and some tests today so we'll see. If they don't find a cause for it pretty soon, I'll likely be selling may bike. It is just not getting used at all. I bought it last fall and it's still not even through the break in period yet. I think it has 850 miles on it and I just did the first oil change a few weeks ago. I would hate to give it up and won't until I know if they can get a grip on this or not but will have to make a decision in the near future. Hopefully it is all something that can be easily resolved. They are looking at my adrenal glands now and I may have to have one of them removed but don't know that yet. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
