Is This A Sign Of Anemia?
Hello, I want to ask when last week I had quite a lot of menstruation then after finishing my period I felt dizzy in my head then I easily got tired of my hands and feet I felt cold then when I sat for a long time my legs were tingling what is a sign of anemia?
Hello Tiara, thank you for the question.
The condition that you experience is a condition that occurs quite often. Some of the causes of these complaints include:
Hypotension or low blood pressure, so the body doesn't get enough oxygen. It can also occur due to a sudden change in body position, usually from a sitting position to a standing vertigo or dizziness, occurs due to a disturbance in the balance and ear nerves, or a disturbance in the internal ear organs Stroke or blockage of blood and oxygen flow to the brain. medications, such as sedatives and blood pressure-lowering drugs Anemia or lack of blood, can occur as a result of excessive bleeding (in women, too much menstruation can also cause this), or lack of red blood cells due to certain diseases hypoglycemic dehydration or sugar deficiency , for example, have not consumed anything for a full day. I would suggest that if this condition persists and does not improve, yes. This condition should be checked if it interferes with your activities. Examinations such as lab examinations and CT scans can be done if needed. Some suggestions for treating this condition include:
Stand up slowly and not suddenly Consume enough water or fluids, 2-3 liters a day Rest first and do not force activities Eat regularly, try not to skip your meal hours limit your consumption of caffeine and alcoholic drinks and smoking If the complaint does not improve, check with doctor yes.
I hope this helps.
