The dizziness that may occur from treadmill running shouldn't last long.
Treadmill running is a wonderful cardiovascular-improving exercise. This indoor, stationary workout won't take you past scenery changes, yet your mind may think you are moving. If you experience dizziness from the ground moving under your feet, you may simply need time to adjust to the workout. However, recurring or sudden vertigo episodes may be a symptom of a more serious condition.
I Feel The Earth Move
The most common reason you experience dizziness when running on a treadmill is your mind gets confused that you are running in place on a moving belt. You think you should be moving forward and the balance system of the brain tries to compensate for this feeling. The same is true when you stop exercising on the treadmill. Your body is confused that the moving ground has stopped moving and it takes a few minutes to adjust, according to "Fitness for Dummies." This type of vertigo is not serious and should cease after a few treadmill running workouts.
Gonna Make You Sweat
If your treadmill is located in a high-temperature room, you may experience heat-related dizziness. The best way to avoid this is to control the temperature of the room so that you sweat, but are not overheating. Another way to regulate your body temperature is to wear moisture-wicking fabrics to keep your body cool. If you are feeling overheated, drink water to avoid the dizziness that accompanies dehydration.
Stop in the Name of Love
A life-threatening reason you experience dizziness while treadmill running is from a heart condition. If vertigo comes on suddenly, and you are not overheated, dehydrated, or new to exercise and the dizziness lasts, slow your pace to a walk to reduce your pulse. Remain at the slower pace to cool down your body before you stop exercising. Seek the advice of your physician before you return to your treadmill running workout.
My Head Is Spinning
Sometimes dizziness really is all in your head. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is an inner ear disorder that is aggravated by certain activities. One of these is running. The pounding irritates the inner ear and may lead to dizziness. Another is the act of running on a treadmill which can increase the frequency of vertigo. Speak with your doctor if BPPV is the cause of your dizziness and adjust your workout to include other cardiovascular exercises such as stationary cycling.
