Dizziness around period

(4 Posts)

Anyone else get this?
My periods returned about 6 months ago and I've had 4 periods in that time, since having / bf'ing DS2.
Yesterday and today, I've been really dizzy, feeling like I'm on a constant roundabout. It's worse when I'm lying down or if I move quickly.
I was quite dizzy whilst pregnant too, if that's any relevance.
Anyone else get this around their period? I am thinking whether to wait until the next cycle and go and see Dr or just to go now. I doubt I'm anaemic as I eat red meat 2 or 3 times a week and enough leafy greens.

low blood pressure? bur sounds like what my DH has (obviously nothing to do with periods!) which is a fluid imbalance in the ears

hmm, maybe. maybe i'm just correlating it with the periods when i shouldn't be.
feels like i'm just absolutely shattered, that i can focus on what i'm looking at, but not much else and that sort of sickness / nausea you get when pregnant (i know i'm definitely not pregnant!).

i'll see how i get on overnight and book an appointment tomorrow i think.

thanks for posting.

Get it checked, preferably when you are on your period so that they can check things out.
BP and Anemia are the two obvious signs

Good luck
