dizzy spells are back and low blood pressure...grrr


About 2 months ago I had severe dizzy spells...really low blood pressure...but figured it was from low iron..so I started taking my iron pills again.
Anyways since then I've been fine...
This morning...it hit me again out of nowhere! Super dizzy everytime I move my head. Checked my bp and it was 84/51. Grrr...
But I've been taking my iron religiously!
My dr thinks it might be a type of vertigo, that women get while pregnant...hoping its not that. Its exhausting with having take care of my son at the same time...and not to mention my husband is sick with a cold right now...(The typical man-cold)!!

I have low bp too, but not quite as low as yours. It's awful and I constantly feel exhausted and then dizzy when I move suddenly etc.

I had my iron checked last week and it's absolutely fine. I am trying to keep my blood sugar levels up all the time which has definitely helped.

Hope you're feeling better soon hun

I know, I feel bad for moaning as I'd far rather low than high bp. Doesnt make it much easier to cope with though!
