Until I can get my bloodwork done (still haven't heard from bariatric center) I've got to figure out why I'm getting lightheaded. It happened again today during my Body Pump class. This time my vision went black for a couple of seconds and the instructor next to me asked if I was okay. I didn't get nauseous and I didn't pass out or anything like that, but I was definitely feeling lightheaded. My friend, M, wondered about my electrolytes being off, so I'll ask them to look at that when my blood work is done next month. Things I intentionally did today before class: had a total of 32 ounces of water and then about 30 minutes before class had a protein bar. Still not convinced it's a food issue, but it could be the fluids. Could be low BP. I'll try to get in even more fluids before class on Thursday to see if that helps.
In all honesty, it's frustrating. I've found an exercise that I'm kind of enjoying, but am not sure how "safe" it is for me right now. Luckily the lightheadedness doesn't happen when working triceps where I lay on my back and lower the weighted bar to my forehead. It would be quite painful to drop the bar on my noggin!
Anyway, until I get bloodwork done and results in I will try to drink. more. water. Not sure how to do that before noon, but I'll figure out a way.
(side note - I just got lightheaded when I got up from the chair to walk into the kitchen...it's annoying!)
