Dizzy, Tired, Lightheaded, Nauseous

The last few days I have felt particularly dizzy, lighted headed and nauseous. I even have found myself getting up at 10am (thanks to DH) and being able to go back to bed at 11am. During the week I even fell asleep while watching my twin 2 year olds play. I can't seem to shake it. I have even gotten a headache from it all. I have a feeling it may be that I am anemic (sp?) but I am going to wait and go the ER tomorrow morning. Any ideas or suggestions on what you think it may be?? Any help would be great! thanks!

  • I had iron deficiency anemia in high school and you're describing exactly how I felt as well. I would bet you might need an additional vitamin supplement to keep up. Are you BF'ing your new baby? And are you still taking prenatals or any other vitamins?

  • I feel like that when my iron is low. I have iron deficient anemia. Also...maybe prego?
