dizzyness

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi ladies

im after a little advice nearly 4 weeks po after TAH and ovaries removed.

Does or has any one suffered from dizzyness at times? It can happen if I am sat down or even lay down I go very light headed and my family say I go white in colou.it normally happens around once a week but they are getting more frequent and I find it happens if there is too much going on at home or when I have visitors.im only taking herbal remedies and everyday pain relief so im thinking its not the medication.getting a little concerned as I fear I dont want them to be panic attacks,any advice would be grateful,many thanks

    If you haven't gone through menopause this forces you into it and anxiety is one symptom the drugs and aneasthics stay in yr system for upto a month after op are you eating properly

      Im taking black cohosh and also red clover and they have lifted my mood and weepiness and also keep the hot flushes under control a little on the expensive side but as long as they work I dont mind.have reduced just to the black cohosh now one a day and not having any problems and now sleeping fully threw the night. can sometimes feel a build of a hot flush but then it dissappears as quick as it started,hope you get some relief soon

    Hi. I'm 6 weeks with ovaries removed. On livial as can't take hrt for 6 months and I get mini dizzy spells which can happen sat down. It's like split second and gone again. I think it's body trying to balance hormones. I mentioned it to Dr on check up and she wasn't concerned about it. I also get fizzy skin on my head too. Weird. I hope that as body gets used to hormone changes this will ease. Good luck

      Thanks froggy for your reply.it is a strange feeling when it happens I also suffer from sinus trouble and had them operated on 15yrs ago ( and wouldnt have it done again!)

      Trying to fatham out if it was due to TAH or sinus related but think its more towards the TAH and lack of hormones,us woman dont half suffer lol.

      Good luck in your recovery,many thanks

      It could be side effects of herbal tablets. Read up on symptoms in case you need to cut back on doses. I have to admit the livial does work but it's a steroid based tablet so I am only taking until I have to as I've put on 6lb already sad because I have 12 years before natural menopause I have researched lots and it's beneficial for me to have hrt despite the risks. The risks of not having them seem worse. When I get into my 50s I can start to rethink it. I'm definitely coming back as a man lol
