So for the past year or so, I've been getting light-headed when standing up suddenly. It used to be dizzy (I used to have to put my hands on something for a few minutes to stop the dizziness) but now it's light headedness instead (my mind will feel 'dizzy' but nothing is spinning around, and my ears will be whooshing and I find it hard to control it when it happens).
I was anaemic for a year up until July last year. I was supposed to have a blood test in January but I didn't have the main symptoms of my anaemia so I saw no point in having a blood test at a doctors surgery that we no longer live really close to (used to be a 5 min walk but now a few miles to walk).
I have been underweight for most my life but more recently I just made it onto the range for healthy weight (5'3 and 7.1 stone).
It's getting frustrating as it's only happening more and more often, and I've given up fighting against it sometimes. For example, just now my cat was making these weird noises (he's fine btw) and I was sitting down on the sofa and I rushed up and up the stairs and halfway up I couldn't fight against the light-headedness and fell down from standing up and fell down some of the stairs. However, I normally am able to fight against it.
On here for some other dizzy moments (much worse and less common, see my other post for better explanation) it's been suggested I have Ménière's disease but with how short these and the other events last, I don't think it's that.
