note. I have over the last few weeks had instances of dizziness
after sitting, then standing up and walking. I have at times needed
to grab onto something to maintain balance. This was the first event
where I fell.

I had a prior event where I almost fell (June30). I was riding bike, had stopped and
sat down to rest at the top of a hill, when I stood to get back on bike I was
dizzy and staggered like a drunk. Sat down again, waiting ten minutes, rose
slowly and was ok.

Theory: I took my morning meds very late today. I rushed the second round of meds which includes BP meds. That lowered my BP too much, and standing pushed me over the edge.

Question: Is my BP medication maybe overdoing it?
