Dizziness/Headache Anyone know why?


#1

Good Morning,

I hope everyone is doing ok. Over the past week or so I have felt dizzy, a slight headache and I seem to get cold easily { I shiver}. It seems to come and go throughout the day. With it also comes the feeling of being exhausted. I dont feel out of breath or anything, just very lethargic. Last night the lower left side of my back hurt. I am not sure if this is PSC related, I have read other posts from the past on here but wanted to know if anyone had any experience with this and if there was something I could do about it? What causes it? gallbladder issues? anemia? {which I dont believe I have}
Thank You in advance

Vasni, getting cold easily is a textbook symptom of anemia. If you can look at your bloodwork, look at your levels of hemacrit and hemoglobin. If they are below standard, you are probably anemic.

The dizziness and headache could be from dehydration.

Mot sure about the pain you describe.

Vasni, are you chewing ice? That’s also a major sign of anemia along with basically everything you’ve already mentioned. I agree with JeffDC1, based on what you’re saying, you seem to be describing anemia.

Are you running a temp? That always makes me feel shivery and I can’t seem to get warm until it breaks. Of course if you are, you probably want to get checked out just in case.

Yes I was thinking anemia too , I went in to my PCP on Friday and my blood pressure was 90/60 , she sent me home told me I had to consume more sodium. My blood work shows my iron is good so I guess thats good. Now I just need to figure out how to keep my blood pressure up??

Lol Thank You guys for your help!
