    I keep getting dizzy and feeling like I’m going to pass out. I was walking around in school and I suddenly just went dizzy and kept swaying from side to side. I felt like I was going to pass out for no reason

    Hello there - Do you check your bloods when you feel that way? Does the experience happen after you've been exercising?

    How are your bloods when you test? What do you to to try to resolve the situation when it happens at the moment?

    Hi.
    You may want to check your blood pressure when you stand up as I get dizzy spells when I start moving caused by blood pressure not reacting when you stand up and the blood pressure in the brain dropping and making you dizzy
