Light headedness in mornings
I am a 48 yr old female in excellent health with excellent blood pressure. However, I experience light headedness in the mornings, even after breakfast while walking my dog.
Should I be concerned?
Yes. Please, seek evaluation by your primary care physician. The list of lightheadedness causes is large and your primary care physician will perform some tests to determine the etiology of your dizziness.
