Over the course of the last few months I have been having dizzy spells when I stand up. Everything goes black and I get a rush of numbness over my entire body. Its goes away within a few seconds. I have passed out only 2 times from it. I was wondering if this is a common symptom or could this be something else. Thanks Bryan

Hi Bryan,
This would happen to me prior to my surgery. Upon standing everything goes black although I never passed out but my surgeon said passing out is very common too with chiari.
