Eye Dizzy Like Going To Faint After Menstruation?
Afternoon, last month after I had my period I felt my eyes fizzle like I was about to pass out. Then this month when I was menstruating, I felt dizzy eyes, headaches several times a day, whose position was changing and sometimes accompanied by palpitations. Sometimes I also feel weak and nauseous. Is it a symptom of anemia or low blood pressure?
Hello Citra, thank you for the question.
Anemia is a condition in which red blood cells and / or hemoglobin in the body are lacking. These red blood cells function as a carrier for oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. If red blood cells are lacking, then oxygen and nutrients the body needs to operate will also be reduced, so that it can cause anemia complaints, in the form of fatigue, weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, dizzy vision, headaches, difficulty concentrating, heart palpitations, cold hands and feet, face, lips, conjunctival eyes, and pale skin, and so on. The causes of this anemia are numerous, including:
Rapid and heavy blood loss, or chronic (longstanding) blood loss, for example due to bleeding during childbirth, accidents, menstruation, etc.
Lack of blood-forming materials, such as vitamin B12, folic acid, and iron. This can result from insufficient food intake or due to the absorption of these substances in the body, for example in people with intestinal or stomach disorders or diseases.
The destruction of red blood cells which is faster than normal, usually occurs in hemolytic anemia
Chronic / long-term diseases such as malignancy, TB, kidney disease, and others
Disorders of blood cell production, for example disorders of the bone marrow where blood cells are formed, are commonly known as aplastic anemia.
Heredity with anemia, or family history of blood diseases, such as thalassemia, and others.
If you feel symptoms of anemia as mentioned above, you should consult a doctor for a thorough examination and supporting examinations if needed, such as blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound, etc. On direct physical examination in people with anemia, usually found face, skin, and palms pale, conjunctival eyes pale, look weak, and so forth. Handling tailored to the cause of the onset of the complaint itself, if caused by bleeding should stop bleeding, treat the underlying underlying disease, can also be given supplementation to increase blood, giving blood transfusions, and so forth.To avoid anemia, it should:
Set your diet, eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially those rich in vitamins and minerals, such as folic acid (fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, green beans, kidney beans, peanuts, wheat, cereals, pasta, and rice), iron, (beef, beans, iron-fortified cereals, dark green leafy vegetables, and dried fruit), vitamin B12 (meat, milk, cheese, cereals, and soy foods (tempeh or tofu)), vitamins C (oranges, peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, melons and strawberries), and so on.
Sufficient fluid needs
Avoid stress, cigarettes, and alcohol.
Consult a doctor if you have a family history of anemia
Thus, hopefully it helps.
