Riding A Motorcycle After Blood Donation?
Hello doctor, I want a blood drive, and this is my first time. Can I not after I donate blood, I ride a motorcycle more or less 20 km away?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically after donating blood, you are better advised to sit and rest, drink more fluids, eat snacks first for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes have passed, watch for the symptoms that you feel. If you experience symptoms such as dizziness, fainting, dark vision, nausea, vomiting, tingling in the body, or other disturbing symptoms, you are not advised to ride your own motorcycle. If you don't experience any of these symptoms at all, you may ride a motorcycle. For your own safety, if you are riding a motorcycle in the middle of your body you feel unwell or dizzy, immediately pull over and rest for a moment. We recommend asking your friends to take you home.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
