Do I have medication side effects or something worse? Been feeling dizzy, unable to concentrate, sleepy all day and flushed for a week - prometrium (micronized progesterone)

Let me help you: While most women have no problems with prometrium, (micronized progesterone) side effects may occur during treatment. The most common side effects include dizziness, headaches, and cramping. Potentially dangerous side effects are also possible. If you develop any of these serious side effects of prometrium, (micronized progesterone) such as migraines or yellowing of the skin, contact your healthcare provider right away.

When is dizziness an emergency?

On dizziness: Dizziness is a common symptom caused by a number of different factors, some that are benign and some that are serious. I would be concerned about dizziness that affected walking severely, dizziness associated with long-lasting double vision, clumsiness in one arm, or intractable vomiting. Sometimes these are signs of a problem with the brain. Hope this helps!

Could certain foods cause dizziness?

Don't think so: Foods themselves do not cause dizziness. If you have an abnormal release of Insulin in response to certain foods then your sugar could drop suddenly causing the sense of dizziness.

Nothing vs. Smth: Dizziness is experienced by all of us. To raise a red flag, though is worth when it is getting more frequent and severe, cannot be otherwise explained by "benign" causes (orthostatic hypotension, for example) and also having other symptoms present (headache, double vision, seizures, numbness, weakness in certain parts of the body, gait disturbances etc.).

It dizziness the same thing as vertigo?

It dizziness the same thing as vertigo?

In most cases yes: If feeling of faintness is not considered dizziness, then dizziness and vertigo can be same. We should think of this as syndrome in which one or more symptoms may coexist. These are lightheadedness, spinning, tilting, falling, nausea, vomiting, loss of balance and these are triggered by change of head or body position such as bending or getting up from bed.
