Tuesday I was in the shower, not any hotter than I usually take, and had just finished and was drying off. I bent my head down to wrap the towel around my head and started to get REALLY dizzy, I leaned over against the wall and once it went away I tried again. Yeah that was a BIG mistake! This time it was even worse than the first and I started to black out! I raised my head up and took some deep breaths, that seemed to help. The rest of the day if I turned my head wrong or looked down it would happened again. I also had a headache that day. Then since it has been on and off with the dizziness. I am still having my headaches but other than this morning they have not been near as bad as the one that landed me in the ER. I know I should have brought all of this up with my doctor at my last visit but I wasn't experiencing it at the time. If it doesn't get worse before my next visit I will for sure be bringing it up then. I don't have a clue what may be causing this. I have heard that if my blood pressure is low that could be why but it isn't really any lower than normal, not anything to be alarmed about at least, heart rate is good, I am eating normally, I think I am getting enough to drink but may try to up the intake to see if that helps at all. I really hope this stops soon. I almost had to call John to come and get me the other night from work. I had just pulled out of the parking lot and started to get dizzy again! I just took the deep breaths again and it went away. I don't feel like I am breathless or not getting enough air which I also hear can cause this. Who knows, hopefully it will end soon or I have an answer soon.
