Woke up this morning feeling dizzy and lightheaded. Also had horrible metallic after taste in my mouth.

I've got an active toddler to look after. How do I get rid of the dizziness?

Not sure how you get rid of it, but could you be pregnant-the metallic taste can be a sign.

Dolally, thanks. I don't think so - I'm currently on my period.

Well that rules that out then! smile Could you have a low iron level? (I'm not sure that would give you a metallic taste, but it can make you lightheaded)

I used to have that. I take iron supplements about half the days and I haven't had it since.
