Is it Possible that you could have high blood pressure. Especially if the dizziness seems to follow a very stressful event. Anemia also can cause it. While it's present just lie down till it passes def don't drive. Maybe schedule a checkup with Dr. Hope your better soon

Thanks achy.. I do have aniema I'm due for anothet infusion next month. I'm already on blood pressure meds but I have been forgetting things ..specifically weather or not I've taken my meds already. So I'll just take them when I think of it. I'm gonna be seeing my doctor tomorrow I'm having surgery on Tuesday .so I wonder if it could be stress also.. But yes ..im laying down right now. Hoping it passes.

Newfibrogirl, it could very well be stress related. When your pain levels go up and your over stressed, your blood pressure will elevate. When you begin to feel ligjtheaded, try some deep breathing exercises. Breathe deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth. Concentrate on settling yourself down and slowing your heartbeat. It should help you out. I'm glad you're seeing the doctor. Definitely discuss it with him. You will be in my prayers and I look forward to hearing about how you made out at the doctor. {{{Hugs}}}. Hang in there. We're all standing by ready to help you if you need us. 🌻🙏🏻
