- It is known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV for short, and it is an extremely common disorder.
- BPPV is the most prevalent condition that creates a sensation of falling.
- It affects tens of millions of individuals every year, and I’ve treated thousands of patients who have been affected by it.
It’s a problem with the sensors of balance in the inner ear, which are what we normally rely on to keep our equilibrium.
Although it is natural for the muscles to relax in this state, the brain is left in a state of disorientation. For a little moment, it believes that you are about to fall. Your body will jolt as a result of the response that your brain gives, which is the contraction of your muscles in an attempt to ‘catch yourself’ before you fall.
What causes falling sensation while sleeping?
- The natural separation of the astral body (psychosoma) from the physical body that occurs during sleep is responsible for the falling feeling.
- This separation occurs as a direct result of the relaxation that is accomplished and the expansion of one’s energies.
- Because our energies maintain us connected to the physical body when we are awake, our bodies continue to be ″aligned″ as a result of this connection.
Why do I lose consciousness when I fall for no reason?
- If you don’t remember feeling faint or dizzy before you fell, you could be experiencing memory loss that goes back to right before the fall itself (retrograde amnesia).
- There is a need for further investigation into the possibility of a cardiac etiology.
- Loss of consciousness can be brought on by heart issues with NO warning at all.
Consultation with an experienced neurologist could be a useful first step.
What happens to your body when you fall down the stairs?
- After getting into bed, you make yourself comfy and cozy, and you notice that your brain is beginning to slow down.
- and then all of a sudden you are confronted with the terrifying sensation of falling.
- It seems as though you miscounted the number of stairs you were walking down, which caused you to keep your leg in the air for a little bit longer than you had anticipated.
It’s not very nice.
