since yesterday i have been getting REALLY bad lightheadedness, when i stand up i feel as though im going to fall down! i need to sit down straight away but even when i do that the whole room is still spinning!! iv tried laying on my left hand side, drinking fruit juice .. having a snack etc. nothing seems to be helping, iv got a feeling my anemia is back i hate feeling like this! does anyone have any other ideas to help this go away? thanks ladies x
I had a bout of this for two days and it was a reocurrence of the low blood pressure I experienced as child and teen. It was also an indication that I'd pushed myself for too long with too much. I took a break of a couple of days, rested and didn't do anything too strenuous or moving too quickly etc which was needed. If you're concerned it's anemia you can take supplements and adapt your diet to get more iron in and see if that helps? Spinach with apple juice can give you a really good boost of iron and help stop the blocked up feeling the iron supplements provide. It's not the tastiest but it does the trick!
thankyou so much! doesnt sound too tasty lol but i will try anything, iv got an 8 month old to look after and its hard when im feeling so dizzy and weak!! i had this when i was pregnant with him and i had very low iron levels, after i had iron tablets it seemed to go away! im going to definitly give your ideas a go thanks again! x
