While I am taking a shower i get very dizzy and lightheaded. My vision becomes very blurry and i feel as if i may pass out. I sit down as soon as this occurs but when i get up to continue my shower it will start again about a minute later. This usually occurs about 10 or 15 minutes into my shower and sometimes does it when it start washing my hair. Does anyone know why this is happening?
If it seems to match your symptoms, I would suggest seeing a cardiologist - talk to them about getting a Tilt Table Test done. Lightheadedness, fainting, etc... are classic symptoms of POTS. Do you ever feel those symptoms besides when you shower?
Just an idea, I hope you get some answers soon! Let me know if you have any questions. :)
