Dizzy - not a sinus infection

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am 49 years old. Work up three weeks ago dizzy. I have been to several doctors who told me i had a sinus infection, eye allergy, to ear infection. After taking all of the medication nothing helped. Still dizzy, but it happens less oftern. I was finally told it could be related to menopause. My periods have been awful for over two years; I need to take medications to relieve the cramps. It feels like I am about to give birth. Now, this month nothing. No period. Is this what I am left with being dizzy? How long will it last?

    Go to your Dr to get a full blood test and especially one for amemia. I got dizzy, tired and a bit breathless going upstairs put it down to being unfit as gave up exercise because of heavy periods. I was serverlt amemic feling better now taking 2x 210mg of iron per day. I also had a scan and discovered I either have a blood clot or a big fibroid when 2 years ago my scan was fine. I am 52 and will go back in a month for another scan to confirm. Then they give me options on what to do.

    Hi Monieet

    I understand how you feel there are times I get dizzy tired nose bleeeds my left nostril bleeds but my right one does not I have gotten test done on my iron level I just have to get the results of those tests. 

    Just hang in there it will get worse before it gets better but before you take HRT read up on it to make sure it is right for you to take it because I feel fine not taking HRT for my menopause symptoms 

    Hope you feel better

    I also get very dizzy, I woke up one morning last year hardly able to stand or walk unaided. it came out of the blue. Dr put it down to Vertigo & gave me some medication, it lasted about 3 months. I now get frequent dizzy spells (I'm 53) think it is menopausal after reading other blogs that are on here.

    Hope you are feeling better soon, dizziness is really awful to deal with.

    Big Hugs
