NVP Symptoms and Effects
Date: 2001-02-02

Question:
I am not vomiting but am feeling dizzy all the time. I am approx 7 weeks pregnant and this dizziness started about 2 weeks ago. It is getting worse. I am taking Diclectin - that seemed to help the nausea, but it is not helping the dizziness. Is it normal to be dizzy like this? Or should I be looking into this further?

Answer:
Pregnancies and nausea or vomiting symptoms are different for every woman. On our NVP Helpline we hear about both nausea and dizziness. Our best suggestion would be, if you have not done so already, to call the NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477, to discuss your symptoms with our counsellor.
