Hi All I am wondering if anyone can tell me why I am feeling dizzy and light headed at times - almost as if I am going to pass out but actually haven't. This has been happening only in the last few days and has happened at night when I turn over on to my other side, whilst sleeping, or getting out of bed. It also has happened this morning after an hour's car journey and coming into the house and then felt like this.
I have checked my blood pressure and it is not low or anything and also checked my blood sugars and they are all ok.
Could it be my thyroid meds being a little high as at the last test (about a couple of months ago) the readings were TSH 0.02 (0.35 - 4.5) and T4 22.9 (11 - 24). I have lost a stone and half of weight over the last 12 months - thru diet and exercise and badly needed . The GP did say that she felt the readings were a little over now but if I felt ok then she would leave me on the 125 mcg of Levo that I am on. Sometimes I do feel a little fluttering in my chest but this always goes again. Could I be deficient in any mineral such as potassium or magnesium or anything that would also cause this.
My iron levels were HB 14.7 (11.5 - 16) - they did not do the ferratin as she said the HB was ok - do not understand too much about this.
Am getting a bit panicky about this now as I am frightened it will happen if I am out and about on my own.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
