I have been getting quite light headed and dizzy over the past few days. I have been drinking loads of water but it wont go away. Im afraid im going to pass out. How can I stop it and has anyone else had these symptoms????
Becca that's my problem, I'm seriously anaemic since my op and have been taking iron tablets for nearly 10 weeks, I'm starting to feel better but still wobble and spin if I stand up too quickly particularly when getting out of bed in the morning.
I take something called Ferrograd, it's got vitamin c in it too and I just take one before going to bed, I'm starting to feel the best that I have in years. You can ask your doctor for it or just buy it over the counter. Be careful, fainting is not funny, I collapsed the day after I came out of hospital and fell flat on my face. I 'lost' about 2 hours where I just didn't know where I was, disastrous when you're on your own or, worse, if you've got a child to care for....
