Why do I get dizziness with menopause?

Why do I get dizziness with menopause?


  1. I have had the same problem, feeling lightheaded and feeling dizzy, I felt horrible and was very scared, every test showed nothing wrong, except in menopause, then my wonderful Dr fixed me :) My iron level was slightly low! It makes soo much sense to me now, my brain felt as though it was deprived of oxygen, and as I read that is a true symptom of low iron, I even went to the emergency room because I was feeling so bad and was very scared what was wrong with me. I stayed clear of iron before and hardly eat red meat, I hated how iron made me feel as far as the bowels. So I am now taking iron suplements, Vitron C, and I feel great, no more dizzy feeling, my brain feels like it is getting the oxygen it needs. Taking too much Iron I hear can be bad so get checked before you take it. The VitronC has some downs , best to take on empty stomach, you will have a horrible burp from it, but will get better as time goes on, and I would rather have that then feel like I am not myself like I felt before. I also was prescribed prempro, took them for two days, hated them, and now that I am taking the iron, the only thing i take is womens one a day menopause and the iron vitron c, I feel great, have some hot flashes but not bad at all, it is more like a light warm flash but goes away quickly. I am 49 and have been in menopause, natural menopause for about 5 to 6 mths.
