You can also get these symptoms with anaemia, which is really common after childbirth. You're better off popping to see your GP. smile

YY to anaemia. My BP went very high at the end of my pregnancy, flashing lights, dizziness and kept getting sent to hospital for monitoring. Only on the 3rd trip did someone think to do a blood test, for it to come back with a very low iron count. DD is 5months and I'm still on tablets angry

I'm anaemic. I get chest palpitations, headaches, dizzyness and pains in my legs. I'm not pregnant, haven't been for 14 years. wink
