Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 22 weeks 5 days pregnant. Yesterday I started feeling hot, sweating and started getting black spots in my vision. Then I felt like I was gonna pass out. I was at work during this and went to sit down. I had water and I felt better. I have a slight lightheaded feeling today and I checked my blood pressure and it has been normal.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Getting dizzy in a second trimester (after 20 weeks) of pregnancy is a normal phenomenon as pregnancy hormones especially Progesterone results in vasodilation of blood vessels and pooling of blood in lower limbs after prolonged standing or sitting. So do not worry about that. The only thing you can do is to keep yourself well hydrated and keep your legs moving while long standing or sitting and do not stand up immediately if you are lying down in bed.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
