LIGHTHEADED AND SHAKES FEELING SLEEPY

I HAVE BEEN FEELING VERY LIGHT HEADED WITH THE SHAKES. I TOOK MY BLOOD PRESSURE AT THE STORE AND IT WAS 104/66 WITH A PULSE OF 98 I FEEL SLEEPY ALL THE TIME. I JUST DONT FEEL GOOD AND I HAVE TOLD MY GENERAL DOCTOR AND HE HAS DONE NOTHING. I WAS WONDERING IF MAYBE IT COULD BE A FEMALE THING?

How about low blood sugar?  Try drinking some orange juice or eating some candy when you have these "spells".  Have you talked to your doc about diabetes and hypoglycemia?

I used to be iron deficient and get the shakes and dizzy spells, are you taking any vitamin supplements?  They have helped me in the past...

Well, if you're iron deficient, there are iron pills you can take, but they're not for everyday use.  I take Equate Women's Daily Vitamin.  I'm ttc so it's good for that too.  I would think it would show up on a blood test, they took one for me to see if I was anemic and that's what they told me, my iron was low.  So, I started taking supplements and it helped.
