POIS and Dizziness
« on: August 01, 2014, 12:20:14 AM »
I noticed that I am getting lightheaded more often when in POIS and I am wondering if this is true for anyone else
31 years old. POIS since puberty. Cognitive and physical symptoms.

Absolutely G-man, I feel lightheaded pretty much all the time. This symptom is the most constant symptom for me and is also the symptom I mentioned to my doctor back when I was about 15 and first developed POIS.

YES! Only in POIS. I've had times when I was sitting in a chair and suddenly I felt like I was falling. I've also found that I can get lightheaded MUCH easier in POIS and can even manually trigger it.
Symptoms last 6-7 days. Onset of muscle weakness after 30 seconds. Symptoms include: brain fog, fatigue, depression, pale skin/dark circles under eyes,  digestive problems, difficulty taking a full breath, irritability. NONE of these are present out of POIS.
