Does anyone else get this?

Posted by @asclepiasincarnata, Jul 5, 2012

When I wake up in the morning I get dizzy with palpitations and a pretty fast pulse and shortness of breath. Sometimes a headache and nausea along with it. Throughout the day I’m really weak and its gotten worse since it started a few months ago. I’m barely able to walk now and I get really really hot and then really cold for a long time and then back to a few minute period of really hot. I’ll sometimes lose vision and go blind for a few seconds. Sometimes I’ll be fine afterwards and other times I pass out. I’m 17 so I know I’m not menopausal yet. These episodes come in waves usually when i get up from lying down or sitting, but they come even while sitting or not doing anything too. Does anyone else get this or have any answers???

I’ve experienced some of the symptoms mentioned. The loss of vision, weakness, and passing out were my symptoms when diagnosed as being a severe anemic. These symptoms were due to a lack of blood flow. The doctor was surprised i was still functioning. After that my immune system has never been the same.

I hope you seek medical attention to determine what your suffering from. Take care.

I went to a couple ones and of course i wasnt having an episode or bad day then so everything seemed fine. They told me it was perfectly normal for this to be happening to people my age :/

Talk to your doctor about P.O.T.S. I have it and your symptoms sound very similar. There is more information on this website http://www.dinet.org/pots_an_overview.htm
