I have been feeling really dizzy, I've had nausea, and hot flashes when I eat. I feel miserable. Went to hospital can't figure it out. Help please!

Really difficult: Your symptoms are called 'non-specific', (meaning they can go along with many conditions)so it makes it very hard to figure out what is causing. You probably need a good primary care doctor (the hospital/emergency room perspective is usually to rule out & treat life-threatening conditions, and if no red flags showed up on any labs they did, then you may not have gotten a thorough eval. ...Read more

6 days Ive been getting hot flashes, nausea, dizzy, & faint feeling. My Dr decided to run a CBC to determine what's wrong, what could show up?

Couple of things: If the white count (WBC) is elevated, it will point out that you may have a bacterial infection. Of course then, your doc would have to find out where the infection is. If your blood count (hemoglobin) is low then it indicates that you are anemic. Body's stress during pregnancy could account for your symptoms though, but I agree with excluding other things. ...Read more

Can i be pregnant? Hi, I have been having a regular period. Then I had sex on my fertile day in october, then in november I had a lot of symptoms like headaches, dizziness, nausea, hot flashes, fatigue.  My period was 3 days later than it should have been

As : As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5 – 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more
