Dear Lee

Thank you for visiting

It is possible that you are experiencing symptoms of lightheadedness, due to a sudden lowering of your blood pressure. I recommend that you have 24-hour blood pressure monitor done, as a start to get behind the problem.

Please however, be so kind as to advise me about your age and your medical history.

Kind regards

Dr Anrich Burger
