  • Hey i know what you mean, i have fibro and get dizzy spells, i suddenly go light headed and eyes go a bit fuzzy, it usually passes after a few secs, bit odd really. Not sure if its the fibro or lowcal diet, mentioned to a doctor they didnt seem fussed. Normally if it happens i make sure im sat down or near a wall, focus on my breathing til it passes and im fine, happens every few weeks. Hope the meds help

  • Thanks fibrofedup they arnt helping at tho moment I too am on a diet did ask doc if it had anything to do with it but she didn't think so it's very scary feeling thanks for your reply x

  • No problem, anytime fibro sucks. Hope they get them sorted out for you soon

  • Be careful not to cut your calories too much, and make sure to drink enough water.

    I have found when doing exercise that I have to careful how I hold my neck, or I can get very dizzy. It seems to have been a trapped nerve. My doctor did some blood tests and everything was ok. I also went to an osteopath who massaged and manipulated my neck, which has helped.

  • Thanks Penel x

  • Note Penel's "make sure to drink enough water."

    I have dizzy times too and a good drink does seem to clear it in a few minutes.

  • Thanks hairyman will do x
