Hi I gave blood on Thursday and haven’t been well since. As soon as I stand my blood pressure plummets 70/50 and I feel like my legs are going to collapse. Has anyone else had problems giving blood? They test your haemoglobin before your allowed to give blood. They drop blood into a solution and if it sinks you’re ok to give blood. Mine didn’t sink so she did an additional test and said I was fine to donate.
My symptoms are the same as being hypo but I was well before I donated so not sure if it’s due to my under active thyroid or the donation? Does anyone have any insight please? I’m not sure if I need to call the aftercare service or just wait it out?
