I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing shortness of breath and dizziness? The shortness of breath comes and goes but the dizziness is constant. I am not even actually sure if that is a pregnancy thing as I am also epileptic so it could be an epilepsy thing
I have an epilepsy clinic appointment tomorrow so I can ask then but in the mean time I wondered if anyone on here had any experience of either symptom.
Gettin that too plus the heart palpitations as mentioned above, seen doctor last week and got blood tests back saying i'm anaemic. On iron tablets now but still get the dizziness etc but its not as bad as it was. Hope it doesnt last throughout pregnancy cos its really annoying.
They also done a d-dimer test which they said was raised so sent me off to A&E and spent nearly 5 hours there for nothing apparently this is normal to be raised when pregnant!! They didn't half scare me tho! so just incase they might do d-dimer blood test on you too dont worry!
I go light headed fairly often when im busy doing stuff. Also it feels like my lungs cant fully expand so it hurts when i yawn and i get short of breath sometimes. I think its fairly normal as the baby crushes everything upwards x
