Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

she could very well be going through menopause.

Dr. David :

but menopause usually doesn't cause dizziness

Dr. David :

she should see her GP doctor and get a full examination and checks on her blood pressure and blood sugars

Dr. David :

she could have a viral infection or sinus infection or ear infection causing the dizziness.

Dr. David :

does she have a GP doctor she can see to get some testing to find out why she is not feeling well.

Dr. David :

is she willing to go see a doctor?

JACUSTOMER-leis6ggo- :

yes she is

JACUSTOMER-leis6ggo- :

she said the dizziness is prob down to the fact she has rcently increased her dosage of meds for blood pressire

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

hopefully she gets use to her new dose of blood pressure medications.

Dr. David :

it definitely sounds like she is going through menopause with her periods being much more irregular.

Dr. David :

her estrogen levels must likely are declining and this can cause some fatigue as well.

Dr. David :

I hope she feels better soon.

Dr. David :
