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
