Lightheaded and Stumbling

Postby susie`s » Mon Jun 11, 2012 9:58 pm

Hi , i just wondered if anyone else has experienced feeling lightheaded and unable to walk in a straight line one min and ok the next , then it starts again ( no alcohol involved ! :crazy: ) . I have fibro , chronic fatigue and a few other problems but have never experienced this before and it was a bit scary .

Yes I have, sometimes it can be down to new meds or an increase in ones you are already taking, so first of all have you changed anything recently?? if not or if it doesnt say anything about dizzyness on the contraindications sheet then get checked out as Mason said. Dont ever put new symptoms down to fibro without getting it checked as fibro mimics symptoms of other conditions and as such nothing should be taken for granted
