Can Menopause Cause Extreme Dizziness?

Yes, menopause can cause dizziness. This is because of the hormonal and physiological changes that occur during this transitional period in a woman's life. During menopause, levels of hormones like estrogen and progesterone drop drastically, resulting in a number of physical and emotional symptoms. These symptoms include not just dizziness but also hot flashes, night sweats, headaches, fatigue and mood swings.

Dizziness caused by menopause can be mild or severe. Mild dizziness may feel like light-headedness or feeling off balance and can last for just a few seconds or minutes. Severe dizziness can be more serious and even include feeling faint or losing consciousness.

There are certain things that can trigger bouts of extreme dizziness during menopause. These triggers might include:

  • Stress
  • Changes in blood pressure
  • Low blood sugar levels
  • Dehydration
  • Not eating enough
  • Exercise
  • Certain medications

If you’re experiencing persistent bouts of extreme dizziness during menopause it’s best to seek medical advice as soon as possible to find out what is causing your particular symptom and address it accordingly. A doctor will perform a physical examination and run tests to determine the underlying cause of your dizzy spells such as doing an ultrasound or an electroencephalogram (EEG). Depending on the outcome of the test they may recommend medication or hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Hormone replacement therapy helps to restore balance in hormones which can help reduce symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, headaches and extreme dizziness.
