What doctor should I see?

I was complaining to my parents of dizziness and also posted a question in health a while ago about it.
I get the feeling that you get when you stand up too fast often when I am just standing around or even sitting. I know it is not because I lock my knees or because I need to eat or drink. Everyone who answered my question said to see a doctor but I forgot to mention that I am four weeks postpartum.
Should I call my ob/gyn or just go to a clinic? and has anyone else experienced something similar?

  • Call your OB/GYN .. i forget what that can be a sign of.. but i remember them warning me that if i was getting dizzy a lot.. to call them ASAP. So.. call... call the after hours nurse.. or you can even call the ER nurse.. they would be able to direct you.

    Good luck mommy.

  • Check with either your primary care doctor or OB. Both should be able to get you the help you need.

  • I called the ob/gyn office and they said to go to the clinic. I went to the clinic and the doctor said it is because I am still passing blood clots which is apparently abnormal at four weeks? He said to call back my gyno and get in earlier than six weeks and so I talked to his receptionist and he is going on vacation and I'll see him on our scheduled appointment. UGH! hahaha So frustrating.
