I was at the gym yesterday and did my normal routine, but when I was done I became very dizzy and lightheaded and had to sit for about 20 minutes or so. I was not able to walk. I was having hot and cold flashes. I took my sweater off thinking that maybe my body was hot. I asked one of the girls at the gym if I could have a piece of gum to see if that could help. I am not sure what could have made me feel this way.

I sat by my desk at home doing some work on the computer. I had just gotten back home from having breakfast and suddenly I started to feel dizzy with a sick stomach. I had to drop everything and go lie down on the couch. I haven't felt like this in a very long time. The nausea was so bad that I could not eat for the day thereafter and still had a sick stomach. I went to see my ob/gyn for my yearly check and when he checked my BP it was 116/103, not sure how I should feel. He has requested that I do some testing including CA125, Lipid Profile and a CBC, Mammogram and Ultrasound, feeling a bit scared right now, but we'll see how it goes.

I was standing up turning a screw and I looked down to get a screw driver. I became very dizzy and a feeling of things moving. I barely got to the couch to sit down. I was very hot and felt sick to my stomach.

I have had my gallbladder removed. It's been almost a year now and every day I am sick and get dizzy. I get the shakes so bad I have a hard time.

A week ago I became a bit dizzy, and then it was followed by nausea. I am not pregnant and am quite concerned.

I am a patient with high blood pressure. I am on drugs bendroflumethiazide 2.5mg, Atenolol 100mg, Zestril (lisinopril dehydrate) 5mg (7.5mg). I have been on these drugs for a while now. I had this feeling of lightheadedness which had gone but now I am having it every day which makes me want to pass out. Sometimes my mid heart is very heavy and painful but not my left side. Sometimes I will sweat profusely and stop. It happens at any position.
