Does Sleep Deprivation Cause Dizziness?

When you suffer from dizziness, you’ll experience symptoms ranging from loss of balance, light-headedness, spinning sensation, etc. Sufferers of dizziness have trouble concentrating and are therefore more likely to be involved in accidents.

Dizziness can be caused by ear problems, medication, disease, fluctuations in blood pressure, dehydration, and sleep deprivation.

Some studies have also established a link between sleep deprivation and dizziness. 

How Sleep Deprivation Causes Dizziness

General Body Weakens. When you’re asleep, your body replenishes its energy reserves. Sleep deprivation stalls this process, thereby causing feelings of dizziness.

Sleep Deprivation Causes Stress. People who are sleep deprived experience stress. Prolonged stress can cause the release of hormones that affect your respiratory system by narrowing your blood vessels.

Sleep Deprivation Causes Blood Glucose Fluctuations. Sleep deprivation can affect the levels of glucose in your body. When your glucose level decreases, you can experience dizziness.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care and Dizziness

Many people who suffer from dizziness have found long-lasting relief through upper cervical chiropractic care. Dizziness can result from crystals blocking canals in your inner ear. Sometimes, it’s caused by the brain’s inability and the central nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body.

To address the cause of your dizziness, a specific chiropractor will conduct nerve tests. Afterward, a chiropractic adjustment and other kinds of care will be administered to restore nervous system function.
