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 have had dizziness for over a week. Yesterday while walking 3 miles I had weakness in my knees, poor circulation in feet, extreme sweating, and was feeling very faint. I drank some water but today am still feeling light-headed.

My dizziness comes and goes. Today it hit with a vengeance two or three times, I had to sit down while everything spins out of control. I'm getting scared that I'm going to have a stroke or something worse. Hope there's help for me.
