Is this serious? - March 3rd 2010, 03:20 PM

Hiya
So for the past two days I've missed school because I've been so tired, and nauseous. I've also had a really really bad sinus infection, but just today when i was starting to try to get back to doing what i usually do I got so dizzy i had to lay down, and my vision got all messed up and stuff... idk if this is serious or not or if it's just part of my really bad cold....

Hey there,

I'm sorry that you're not feeling so good right now!
It's very possible that you do just have a very severe cold and that the issues with your dizziness may in effect, be distorting your vision That could also be associated with your blood pressure. I think that if your health hasn't started to improve within this week then it may be a good idea to visit your doctor if you can, just to put your mind at rest.

I hope you're feeling better soon!

Agreed. If things don't get better, then go to the doctor.

I definitely think there must be something going around. I feel the same way - though a bit less severe, and a lot of people I know are very exhausted and drained too.

The dizzyness could definitely be blood pressure, like Konstantine said - but if you're not feeling so well, maybe you're not eating as much as you should be, and it's from lack of food?

If you miss another day of school, I'd schedule an appointment - or wait until after the weekend to see if it passes. It could be something like Mono..
