Question: Dizzy spells

 magtino - Mon Apr 25, 2005 5:13 am

I am a 57 year old man and I have been getting dizzy spells since I was 15 years old.
I suffer dizziness when I stand up from a sitting position and sometimes feel like I am going to black out.
I have always been as white as a sheet, could I have a circulation problem, I tried taking an iron supplement but this never made any difference.
