    A few years ago... When I was 12/ 13 i used to go dizzy and faint. The only way i can describe it is everything would go fuzzy and start swimming the next thing i know is I'm on the floor. Since I had my daughter 10 weeks ago its started happening again really badly. I at first put it down to the pph ( post partum haemorrhage) but its still happening now. Before people say go to a doctor I have tried but they are fully booked any advice other than see gp would be great.

    It might be a serious case of anemia or low sugger or low blood presure. Check these things.

    Are you doing maybe any post-baby diet, which could be causing this?

    I'm not on any diet. When I was last checked bp was fine but blood hasn't been checked since I came out of hospital. I was on iron tablets for a month and whilst on them it wasn't so bad. But it is getting worse. I used to think it was due to standing up quickly but it happens all the time now.
    I lost all my pregnancy weight in two weeks. So I didn't see any point to diet. I am still trying to get appointment at doctors but as its close to Christmas its luck of the draw to get one.
