I am 24 and during my period in October of last year I got headache,dizzy feeling, and nausea the day of my period. The dizziness and nausea lasted about 2 weeks. Then it happened again in February the day before. Lasted about 2 weeks. Also I will get really dizzy, heart beats real fast and just feel like crying sometimes. It's always with my period. Well about 3 weeks before my period(April) I got a headache. My head would pound a few times when I stood up. It went away. The next day I was nauseous and dizzy feeling. Lasted 4 days. Then the nausea and dizziness came back 3 days before my period this month(April). I will be going to the doctor sometime. What's wrong?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be related to ovulation and increased progesterone levels in the body after ovulation. The nausea, dizziness, headaches, increased heartbeat can all be attributed to increased levels. You should consider going ahead with visiting your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough hormonal analysis (both in follicular and luteal phase of the menstrual cycle). Treatment as appropriate would be started for you based on your investigation results.
