I often get dizzy when standing up and my vision starts to go black. I often need to grab onto something to stable myself, but it only lasts a few seconds. I’m wondering if these symptoms are from anemia (I’ve had issues with it in the past, and my anemia rn is pretty mild) or if the symptoms are from serous otitis media or something else.

      it could be that you have it and if you do get prescribed iron pills they are way better than over counter

      Have any of you checked your Blood Pressure lately,or,take anything for BP? Either way,you should be checked.BP meds can drop your BP too low.Happened to me last year.Dr cut dosage in half

      perhaps if you can’t take iron pills you can get iron infusions? i used to be extremely anemic (hemoglobin at 9 or 10) and i also received epogen shots that helped me a lot

      Have you been prescribed iron pills?

        @Pisces2022 I was taking over the counter iron supplements before becoming anemic, but my doctor said I should stop taking them because of other conditions I have

          @Claude03 I’m on oral iron pills 3X Daily- it has helped some but I definitely do feel fatigue a lot these days but I’m assuming it’s from other meds I’m prescribed that makes me feel tired

          @Claude03 oh gotcha. Perhaps your doctor can prescribe something to help with Anemia? I hate all symptoms of Anemia.
