I am dizzy, lightheaded, and exhausted, no temp, no cough, no sneeze, no other symptoms...what could this be?


Posted by alane98

I had a gastric by pass 3 years ago and have maintained my weight loss and "ideal" weight of 165 (I am 6 feet tall and 32).

Pregnancy is a possibility but highly unlikely due to two methods of birth control IUD and the pill.

No presenting symptoms other than dizziness, lightheaded, and exhaustion even after 8 to 10 hours of sleep.

Dear Alane98 -

 

You don't mention how long you've had these symptoms or whether you've seen a doctor about them.  Dizziness, lightheadedness, and fatigue can have many different causes, so you should see a doctor immediately so that he or she can run tests and figure out what's behind your symptoms.

 

Since you posted in the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) community, I guess you're wondering whether you have CFS.  The symptoms you describe are often a part of CFS, but, as I said, they can also be caused by many othermedical problems.

 

In addition to fatigue, CFS often causes recurring sore throat and/or swollen glands, flu-like aches, headaches, and cognitive difficulties (i.e. brain fog).  In addition, CFS causes a unique exercise intolerance, where any kind of physical or mental exertion results in a severe worsening of all symptoms with hours of exertion.

 

For more information on CFS, see www.cfids.org.

 

Dizziness and lightheadedness can be symptoms of many serious conditions, so you should see a doctor immediately.

 

Good luck finding some answers and relief -
