I get dizzy when I do blood test. Any possible reasons. My blood tests are normal?

Apprehension: This is fairly common. Concern over the stick, the result, your health condition trigger a reaction that results in a fall in blood pressure and slowing of the heart rate causing faintness. Being hungry does not help. In most cases, it's not anything to worry about. Stand up slowly afterwards, and get some fluids in you. ...Read more

I'm 36 years old, for 3 months I have been experiencing fatigue, palpitations, skipped beats and dizziness. Blood tests are normal, 24h holter, echocardiogram and ekg stress test normal (only one extrasistotele at rest). My doctors say it's anxiety.

Be reassured: The normal ekg, echo and holder are all reassuring that the problem is not caused by the heart or by changes in heart rhythm (Arrhythmia). If you are having spinning sensations with lightheadedness, you may also want to get an ENT evaluation of your balance organ and hearing to make sure that is not the cause. Anxiety can also cause these symptoms. ...Read more

I contracted Mono last year, now I'm having problems with dizziness and leg weakness. And my last blood test came back normal.

I contracted Mono last year, now I'm having problems with dizziness and leg weakness. And my last blood test came back normal.

Likely unrelated: Years ago there was some talk about a chronic mono but the CDC has debunked that speculation. Your symptoms are very non-specific and could be related to dozens of differing diagnoses. I would work with your PCP over time to sort it out. Many of these take time to show their true form before they can be labeled and treated. ...Read more

Were you anemic?: Do you have heavy periods> Were you iron deficient? Some people require iron supplements but most get by with good sources of bioavailable iron, mostly meats, unless they have a cause for iron loss, i.e. gi bleed, woman with heavy menses, exfoliative dermatitis, etc. First confirm it is indeed iron deficiency, secondly treat appropriately. ...Read more

Drug: Drug testing is very expensive. It's not routinely done because of the expense. (in fact, they way laboratories do drug testing for employment screenings is to take a small amount of blood from all the people they're testing and mix them all together and just do one test on the mixed sample. If the mixed sample is clean, they know everyone is clean and don't test individuals.) furthermore, no one can test you or your friend's blood for drugs without permission. It's considered an illegal search. Unless your friend has given specific authorization to be tested for drugs, the doctor or lab cannot perform the test. If they do, the avvo legal forum is thataway =====>. ...Read more

Dizzy. Have blood pressure of 86 and 50 bpm. Normal blood test. Eat healthy, exercise but struggle with eating too little. Are these stats safe?

Yes: A well conditioned athlete may have heart rate in 50s. Systolic blood pressure in 80s is fine if you do not have symptoms. What is your BMI? If it is less than 18 you may wish to eat more. Your dizziness may be due to dehydration, if you are not drinking enough water and if you lost weight recently that may contribute to dizziness. ...Read more
