What can cause dizziness, partial loss of eyesight, random numbness in the face and arm, and nausea? (20 year old female with PCOS)

In an older patient, these symptoms are signs of a stroke and require immediate medical attention. However, in a younger patient, orthostatic hypotension is the most likely cause. Orthostatic hypotension occurs when a person rises to a standing position from a lying or sitting position and is a result of falling blood pressure. The symptoms are a result of insufficient blood flow to the brain and typically include dizziness, light-headedness, temporary blindness, body dissociation, extremity tingling, or even fainting.

You should be evaluated by your primary care physician for laboratory tests and a physical exam to determine what exactly is causing your symptoms.
