Should I see my GP for this?

When I stand up for longer than half an hour to an hour I feel really sick and dizzy and feel like I'm going to faint. I need to have water, get some fresh air and sit down to calm myself but even after I feel sick. I have my medicine placement on wards coming up and you can be on your feet for 12 hours a day. I think I'll end up fainting. Is this a medical issue and do I need to see my GP?

Yes. It's obviously not normal.

It could be, so yes I agree with the above.

GabiAbi84 ecolier ROTL94 I have beta thalassemia that was treated with a bone marrow transplant though so I don't think they can do anything for me because I just have red blood cells. I'm just really scared of fainting on placement and wondering if I can get through 12 hours on my feet.

You'd be surprised at what they can do, also are you under the care of a specialist? If you are they can get in touch with him on your behalf.

Then in that case you need to see your GP even more importantly, so that they can either look through your notes to see what they can do or refer you back to the haematologists.

I am and used to be seen every 3 months but since I got moved to the adult hospital I haven't been seen in a year a half. Probably because of covid.

Low BP per chance? Either way for medical answers to such questios obviously the only path to take is book an appointment with the gp
