We all know the battle we face but iv started to go really light headed and really dizzy ALOT. I always get typical head rush but this is different. In the last 4 days iv felt like i was going to pass out in one occasion i fell to floor as i felt myself going but within half a second the feeling went and it was like someone had set me on fire. My GP says its just anxiety and im so mad when i no my feelings and symptoms for anxiety problems does anyone else suffer bad with their head ? Am i started to get worse ? Is it M.E? Im getting really stressed now with my GP when they just point the finger to an illness which i already have this is frightening to live with .

Any insights to what any of you experience from M.E would be greatly appreciated 

Thanks

    Hi.. you need to look into POTS. its quite common with ME , i have both.  It causes that dizziness and feelings of shakiness etc.  Easily diagnosed with *poor mans tilt table test*  again look it up.  Took me over 20 years to get a full diagnosis .

    I fear your GP is suffering from an acute case of ignorance. Google "POTS." A very high percentage of people with ME/CFS suffer from POTS, which can cause lightheadedness and result in passing out.
