Today is pig cleaning day and I have no energy to do it, everytime I move I get dizzy and light headed has anyone else felt this way?
Yep! I suffer from vertigo anyway, but for the last 2 weeks I've had it pretty bad. It turns out I had a chest infection as well as sinusitis which made it worse. If you have no pain but dizziness then it sound like vertigo or labrynthitis. Get yourself to the docs!

I agree, Docs! I've been like this a few times, it's my meds, but sometimes it can be something else, possibly blood sugars. Always best to get it checked out :)

Sounds like you have a thyroid problem.

When my thyroid first started playing up I was dizzy every time I stood up, or felt like I was going to pass out. I also would sleep so much but still have little or no enegry. The smallest of things would tire me out. In the end, i'd be having 5 or 6 naps a day and sleeping throughout the night, and if I needed to sleep but couldn't or didn't sleep i'd just pass out in the end when it got really bad.

I get dizzy a lot, turns out my blood pressure is on the low side so I get dizzy easily. Tiredness and dizziness could easily be a cold coming on too so I wouldn't rush to the docs unless it's a persistent concern really. Hope you feel a bit better after a good rest

I get spells of that light headed feeling and vision goes white, it mainly happens when I get up to quickly. Passes after seconds

Rest up and hope you feel better soon.
