Answer to your Health Question

Question: I am 25 weeks pregnant and have these spells where I become very dizzy, blurred vision, weak, and very diaphoretic. I am very concerned, but my ob is not. Should I change doctors? Carissa

Answer: Dear Carissa,

All of the symtoms that you mention are common during pregnancy due to the many changes that a woman's body goes through.

Dizziness is common all throughout pregnancy and in each stage is due to a different reason (blood flow, sugar levels, growing uterus). Blurred vision and perspiration are also common side effects, most of the them due to the increased amounts of hormones in your body and changes it is experiencing.

During pregnancy it is important that you have confidence in your doctor. Whenever you suffer from new symptoms explain them to your doctor and ask for an explanation back.
