    I've been feeling quite ill recently, with stomach aches and headaches. I'm not one to complain, and I've been very healthy throughout my life and rarely get ill. Anyway, I've been feeling dizzy almost every time I stand up, especially if I have been lying down before, and really sleepy a lot of the time. I'm getting my blood pressure checked on the 28th, so I'll be able to see if that has anything to do with it. Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas!

    Could be anaemia caused by lack of iron
    Could be stress
    Could be that you've just picked up a virus.

    To be honest, it could be various things, they're pretty generic symptoms. Best to wait til you see a doctor to get properly checked.

    Thanks. I was just getting worried because I've been feeling dizzy when I stand up for a couple of months now.

    That's probably to do with the blood pressure and the blood rushing to your brain or away from it not quite sure...

    I used to have this, I just played a bit more sports and tried to be a bit more active. I think being really lazy on holiday brought it on. I doubt it's anything to do with your blood pressure but it obviously won't hurt to check. Get well soon!

    Thank you! Did you have all of the symptoms?

    Not-so-much the headaches or stomach aches, but I felt very drowsy and 'saw stars' whenever I stood up after laying down for a while.

    I just had my blood pressure taken and it was low but still in the average range, so that rules that out.
