Okay,I need to hear from the women. Is it possible to get a dizzy feeling when being overly tired/fatigued? I noticed that if I don't get at least 8 hours each night I get extremely tired the next day and can barely function. I also get sickish feeling w/ a low-grade fever (sometimes) and dizzy spells. This seems to happen the most a week to a week and a half before I start my menstration cycle.Just curious is this is normal. I get so tired that I can't keep my eyes open.

I get dizzy sometimes.....think my blood pressure meds keep it too low at times. Also, my mother suffered from an equalibrium problem and am wondering if it is hereditary. I take Meclozine in the morning, it is for dizziness. In any event, with that and other conditions, I feel like a piece of #### most days. Getting older sucks big time too!

most days i feel like a walking zombie, no matter how hard you try its near impossible to stay awake

I would run this past the doctor. It doesn't seem to fit with how I am when I am normal (now I have had a sleep disorder, and so I know how much that mucks one up, but I didn't get dizzy, just tired and dragged out even if I got 10 hours of sleep, and usually was worse if I got less than that).K.

It's not so much dizzy but more like urgh....um "spaced out".I have run it past the doctor he said I am tired because of IBS and depression. I told him I felt spacey sometimes and he said it's the anxiety.I was just curious if others felt this? Again, this is the girl that always thinks the worse.

I feel like that all the time, spaced out and tired. I think the fatigue is from having a constant tumyache and the dizzy feeling is from being tired and stressed out over this IBS thing.

Chris-A little over 2 weeks ago I got extremely dizzy, nauseous, and started sweating like crazy at work. I suffer from IBS as well as PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome)as well as endometriosis. My lower back and stomach are killing me. Every time I eat something I am running to the bathroom within 15-20 minutes.My doctor told me the dizziness was from a couple things, one of which included being dehydrated and loss of electrolytes etc from having diarreah all the time. I have not been back to work since- I feel like crud most of the time and it is really wearing me down.

StolbacWhat is PCOS? Is that where you get cysts everymonth from your cycle? If so, I get that too. Your symptoms sound like mine.Are you going to be able to go back to work?

yeah, i've been getting really dizzy, more so when i'm tired, and that tends to be when i get fevers as well. i get the spaced out thing too but also the dizziness and it dosen't seem to have anything to do with my menstrual cycle. At first i just asumed it was the anaemia but i've been on iron for 6mths now and i still get that. Yeah the tiredness does seem to have a lot to do with IBS even if lots of the info insists this isn't a cause.

I get extreme fatigue and dizzyness, and this has been said its part and parcel of IBS, and a form of anemia (sorry, but cant remember the exact termonology used). I'm having vitamin B12 injections at the moment, and have to say it has given me a lot more energy, but not helped with IBS D as first suggested! I had one injection a month, now onto one every three months, and fingers crossed has really helped!

Basically I found it hard to get out of bed in a morning.I found myself getting so so tired at work, just getting up of the chair was hard work. Just felt like lying on the sofa was all I was capable of. bY 5 O Clock I was ready for a sleep. I was referred to a specialist because of my IBS D, but I was asked loads of connecting questions, and they seemed to think that the two were connected. The specialist said the B12 injections would help my iBS D and my lethargy, since vitamin B12 is connected with digestion and the such.... Like I say have not noticed much diff with D, but my energy levels have risen, and rather than coming home and having a cat nap I can get stuff done, spend time with my son. Its made a world of difference. It was diagnosed through a simple blood test that was carried out along with the usual, pre diagnosis IBS tests.
