I been getting these dizzy spells where the room goes spinning and i feel like im gonna faint. I have no idea what its due to. i got one 3 days in a raw now. One just came over me like 10 min ago. my doctor is not working today, tried calling already. im freaking out. wht could it be due to??
Before pregnancy I had low blood sugar which constantly causes dizziness and I found eating something with sugar in it and drinking plenty of water helped. How often do you eat? Try small but regular meals to keep your blood pressure/sugar levels on an even line
I've been experiencing the same thing. So much so that I don't even leave the house alone anymore. It can be a normal thing in pregnancy due to decreased blood pressure or it could be abnormal, caused by anemia most commonly. Other causes are low blood sugar and dehydration. If your doctor's done bloodwork recently that shows your Hb levels are normal then it's probably nothing to worry about. My doctor is an overly-cautious guy and has sent me an EKG but I'm not too worried.
As soon as you start feeling dizzy, lie down (preferably on your left side). Make sure you're well hydrated and never let yourself get too hungry.
I didn't eat 3 hrs today & got the dizziness...yesterday i ate and 1 hr later it hit me...so im not sure if its due to that...i drank extra water today hoping it was due to water and not drinking enough, seems like thats not it either bc i still got it today...
last times when i mentioned it to the physicians assistant that works for my doctor that i got one, she just brushed it off like its probably due to increase in blood volume in my body, which really pissed me off because she didnt even bother checking anything. & here im 3 weeks later getting them 3 days in a raw. they dissapeared for 3 weeks & r bback now. : (
Might be your iron levels.. I was starting to feel slightly dizzy and on the 34 week blood test it came back that my blood count was dropping to near the cut off so they put me on 2 x iron tablets a day..
If I forget to take them the dizziness comes back...
I'm def. headed to the hospital....keep getting the dizziness & it's giving me panick attacks bc im scared i'll faint. i hope they'll check my blood for iron levels. i cant deal with the dizziness everyday now
Just saying hi and sorry you are experiencing this! I would say definitely get it checked it out as soon as you can. Hopefully they can find a cause, then treat it so you don't have this everyday! Wishing you the best and hope they can find an answer so that help is around the corner! Keep me updated
