Postpartum dizziness: 32 yo woman c/o dizziness and postpartum hyperthyroidism. I would urge you to see your physician right away. Studies show dizziness is a complaint that needs to be urgently evaluated in the postpartum period. You need a full examination. In response to your question- my impression is that postpartum thyroiditis can cause both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Dizziness may or may not be related.
