I keep getting light headed

Every time I get up I feel light headed and like I am about to fall over. It passes after a few seconds but I cannot figure out why. I just had a baby c-sec 3 weeks ago if that helps. I have not had a huge appetite like I did when I was pregnant. Maybe just my body adjusting from a big diet to a normal one?

  • your iron might be low. I get this way because I am anemic so when my iron gets low I can get really dizzy

  • If you are still getting dizzy and it's been 3 weeks, you need to tell your doctor.
