Hello: I am a 45yo male, who is having problems with dizzy spells sometimes during (but mostly after) sex or masturbation. I first had (non-sexual) dizzy spells every few days back in Feb 2007, which reduced to every few weeks -- one per month. Each spell lasts only about 30 sec. I noticed the non-sexual spells seem associated with specific movements, like turning my head quickly, looking down during eye movement involved tasks, scrolling up or down on a computer screen. Since there was a correlation between spells and the eyes, I figured it may be a visual thing. HOWEVER, I now have the MOST IRRITATING problem of dizzy spells after sexual activity. I have always enjoyed masturbation, so it is difficult to be afraid to enjoy myself due to fear of an attack. I have been able to adjust since the non-dizzy spells are not as often. BUT, ....the new "sexual episodes" are the real issue that I find most difficult to handle. Could the issue be my blood pressure getting high during sex, ....or being very high during sex and then there is the big drop afterwards???? Any ideas???? HELP!!!!!! :(
