Head Dizzy Until The Feeling Of Fainting After The Hb Test?
I want to ask, after every HB test, why is your head so dizzy?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hb or hemoglobin is a component found in red blood that plays a role in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to all body tissues. Low Hb, indicates that a person has anemia or lack of red blood cells which are characterized by weakness, not powered, pale, dizzy, or even tightness and palpitations.
To find out if a person's Hb is low, do a Hb check or Hb test. The test is done by taking blood, usually from a vein behind the elbow, and actually not much, at least around 1-3cc for later processing using a special instrument in the laboratory. And blood that is only 1-3cc is not so influential on the body to make the head become dizzy, let alone faint.
So what we want to say, maybe there are other things that cause you to experience such symptoms, and not the Hb test process itself. The first possibility is that the condition is coincidental, in the sense that you are dehydrated or lack of fluids, low blood pressure, anemia, low blood sugar levels, or the like which happen to coincide with your Hb test. But if this is indeed the case, there should be a moment when you have a Hb test and don't experience these symptoms, and vice versa, there are moments when you experience these symptoms and not a Hb test.
The second possibility, you might have a needle phobia or blood phobia. A phobia is a condition where a person has excessive fear of something that should not be dangerous. Phobias can be anything, can be a narrow space, can be a height, certain animals, and even food. If you have a phobia, the symptoms shown are palpitations, weakness, dizziness, nausea, and so on. So if you do have a phobia of needles or blood, you may experience it every time you have a Hb test, or every blood test.
However, further investigation is still needed to be able to ascertain whether you are in the first, second, or even beyond that possibility. For this reason, we recommend that you consult with your general practitioner beforehand to do a history, physical examination and support to make possible possibilities. The handling that you will receive can only be determined after conducting this inspection.
Meanwhile, take care of your health by avoiding cigarette smoke, stress, multiply the consumption of water, adequate rest, consumption of red meat, vegetables and fruit, and regular exercise. So, hopefully answering your question.
