Does anyone else experience facial pallor, sweats, and dizziness while sitting??? I know when I'm standing that can occur but it occurs while I am sitting and everyone points it out which makes me feel worse. How can ppl expect a person to work when wee have all these symptoms?!? My doctor always asks what my BP is while this is happening but I dont have a BP Cuff and I can't afford one right about now...

I too often have these types of symptoms whilst sitting. I get sweaty, clammy, pale, dizzy etc. My friends often comment that I am more like a woman with menopause than a 28 yr old male.

The symptoms seem to be many, and it is a wonder how we can work etc - we just have to soldier on, until we find the solution.

:(

Oh yes, it does not seem to matter if I am standing, sitting or laying down it happens to me. Luckily mine is hopefully documented at the hospital. Every time that I was in the hospital it happened and every time the nurses would take my b/p and it would be very low. It has happened while I was walking, and the doc that I had then said that it was not possible to happen while I was laying down or walking, just standing. Well isnt he the idiot! I do not have that doc anymore. He was a waste of space to the point of he is leaving town. Hooray! I live in a small town and word spreads like wildfire and people lost all trust in him, and now he is gone. I kept telling the docs that it happens other times other than just on standing, hopefully my Neuro listeded to me. I can not work, I could not take the stress. I miss working, and now am trying to get disability, but now I may not get it because I wanted to be a stay at home mom for too long. My attorney is going to fight it. Yes the bp cups are expensive. I had to get one of the digital ones, and I struck it lucky when we went to buy one they had one on sale. If it wasnt for my husband working 2 jobs I could not even get my meds. Hang in there though. Hope you start to feel better soon! :D

Hi! Welcome, by the way; I think I missed you when you first joined. :D

Yes, I used to get pale & lightheaded when I was sitting, too. Still do in fact, just not on a regular basis with the meds I'm on. I usually did better reclining back on pillows rather than sitting upright. We checked it out and my BP was always dropping when that happened, so at this point, I don't bother worrying about it. I just lie down and rest until my BP readjusts.

You're right to make sure it isn't anything serious. I was lucky on that point -- a doctor & nurse for parents are a big help in terms of having a BP cuff & readers.

As for the work question, to some extent (and it varies widely from person to person) we can tough through. Not all of us can work, though. It takes all I have to just manage through daily living -- living and brightening other people's days are how I work. I'm actually able to function at about 30% at this point on my meds, as opposed to the 5-10% that I was earlier on (percentages accurate to the CDC's functionability chart). Are you in the process of trying out medications?
