Diagnose me MNers!

For the past week I've been feeling really crappy - dizzy, nauseous, lighteaded and utterly shattered. Deffo not pregnant. What could it be?

Could be anything. That's why GPs exist.

Go and see yours.

the flu

or middle ear infection?

I feel breathless at times, too. I will go to the GP if it sounds like I need to, but I'm just about functional enough to come to work (and I really don't have the time to take off to see the GP unless its serious!) Hmm, can you have a middle ear infection with no ear pain?

Elfina Thu 20-Feb-14 16:55:32

Blood taken and not confirmed yet, but looking pretty likely (am veggie).

WowserBowser Thu 20-Feb-14 17:00:41

I was going to say amaemia as that's exactly how i felt when i had it whilst pregnant

Take a good quality liquid iron supplement rather than tablets - absorbed better and gentler on your stomach. Take with vitamin C to help with the absorption.
