Hiya,

Has anyone got any advice for lightheadedness and feeling faint? Or is this not the right forum to post this on?

Thanks

    Could be low blood pressure, but would need medical evaluation

    Hi,so sorry for my abrupt reply but I know how worrying these things can be.

    Ideally you do need to have a few things checked out,as there are a lot of factors involved, I.e age, general fitness, etc

    Please don't worry too much as it is more likely to be something simple than serious.

    My. First reaction was low blood pressure and probably that will be the first one they test. Is it constant, or when he stands up, when he's in bed?

    Get him checked and I hope it's something simple. Cheers.

      Thanks for your replies, much appreciated. 😊

      Its lightheadedness all the time when walking, feeling offbalance when walking sometimes and feeling unstable sometimes when stood up. Lightheadedness when moving about, bending down and getting up and sitting up and sturming over in bed. 😣

      Its been checked out and Drs day its anxiety related, hmm. Its so awful atm. Faint feeling too. 😣
