dizzy... ??

lately ive been getting really dizzy. it almost feels like im drunk or something. you know that dizzy feeling when you start getting a really good buzz going. ( but i havent had a drink in almost a year now, i got pregnant and am now breastfeeding )

 then today it started and now my face is kind of tingly. it feels really weird. ( i am gonna make an appointment tomorrow, so im not on here looking for cafemom doctors, lol ) just wondering if anyone else has dealt with it.

last week when i was dizzy like this my heart felt like it was skipping a beat or something and it was doing it every few minutes so i found my pulse in my neck and everytime my chest felt like that my pulse would disappear for a beat then come right back. it freaked me out, but it stopped so i didnt worry about it anymore. but now with my face feeling all funny now im gonna call and get an appointment.

hubby is wondering if it could be sugar problems and i also had low blood levels after i had my daughter ( 3 months ago, csection ) but i got it checked a month later and they said they were fine now.

so anyway, point being...anyone else have this kinda stuff happen? just so i can bring different things up so they dont brush me off ( military doctors... )

Have your blood pressure checked when you're sitting AND when you're standing.  Also if you're bf-ing you need to make sure you're getting adequate amount of sustenance...you already know that   But I had that though I never lost my balance or lost my focus, I think mine was due to severe lack of sleep.  Anxiety could be the issue they might take your blood to check iron potassium platelets etc.   Also could be post pardum hormones..

im definately eating good.

could be the lack of sleep. that comes with having a new born and a 4 yr old.

i havent lost my balance or anything and can see fine just really dizzy. enough where i have to stop everything im doing and either just stand there or sit down.

It also may mean you have an arrhythmia- with the pulse thing and the dizziness, just definitely get it checked.

yea lack of sleep could be it then. It took me like 3 months till I felt normal again. ugh! Hope everything works out ok for you.

I am diabetic. 2 weeks ago I started getting dizzy spells and actually passed out and hit the floor.  DH tested my sugar while I laid on the floor. Normal. I went to the doctor friday. Come to find out, I'm anemic. He told me my hemoglobin was 9, which is low, and I needed Iron. I'm slowly starting to feel better.

I have had extremely heavy cycles, and this last month I had lost 1/3 of my blood... and the Anemia.. Have the doctor check your hemoglobin..
