Has anyone gotten dizzy before they got their period?

The last 2 months I have been getting dizzy spells a week before I get my period. I hate the feeling but have not gone to the docs yet. Maybe I am anemic or deficient in something.

  • Yes, I get dizzy and I my heart beats really fast and I get jittery! The Dr. said I had PMDD (pre Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder) which is like PMS but much worse. He gave me a prescription for zanex but I try not to take them. Talk to your Dr.

  • If you find that you are struggling with iron deficiency, be sure and check your dairy intake. While the human female has a huge need for calcium, we have found with many many studies that dairy also inhibits the body's absorption of iron. You can find other resources of calcium than cheese, milk and ice cream. :) Hope this gives you some leads.
