The state of relaxation in inversion can also lower heart rate and blood pressure. There are also cases where inversion has been used to treat hypertension. Ask your doctor here for safety.
Middle ear inflammation: The middle ear regulates the pressure in the ear. It could lead to disorientation or discomfort.
