Just earlier, I bent over to pick something up and stood up real quickly and felt like my blood rushed out of my head. Then I started feeling numbness and a flushed feeling in the back of my head which sort of flowed into my left cheek.

Everytime I raise my eyebrows or turn my head a certain way, I can feel the strange sensation in the back of my head. I'm getting to the point where I'm feeling a bit nervous about this.

You probably have congestion in one of your sinuses. This can be present even if you feel like you can breathe fine through your nose.

I had this for a few weeks last winter and was getting dizzy spells from it. I didn't think it could be sinus congestion because my nose felt clear, not stuffed. The worst was bending over and then straightening up again. It felt like my eyes were going to pop out.

If it's not your sinuses, get your blood pressure checked, standing, sitting and lying down. Some people get orthostatic hypotension: a drop in blood pressure in response to change in body position. Lots of non-dangerous physical conditions can cause this. If it happened out of the blue and it's not normal for you, maybe it happened because you're a little dehydrated.

I was gonna suggest a clogged sinus somewhere too, or possibly a pinched nerve.

Could also be an inner ear fluid imbalance or the beginnings of an ear infection. Your inner ear is integral in your body's spatial awareness; fluid or pressure can cause your balance to be off.

Sometimes that happens to me but I've been to a cardiologist and it's just a blood pressure drop in my case. I lay down until the wooziness passes. But, i'd also go with any of the other suggestions too. The cardiologist said dehydration can cause dizziness as well.

To the those of you who mentioned sinus, I have been having a lot of sinus lately and sinus headaches as well. Maybe this was a reason for what I experienced.

But it did go away after about 20 minutes or so. I laid down on the floor for about 5 minutes and that seemed to help.

You did something that tickled your vagus nerve.
