    Default Dizziness after flying

    Hey everyone. As some of you know I just got back from a trip. I've been feeling kind of light headed today. Not enough to stop me, but enough to notice there's something different. Has anyone else experienced light headedness after flying. I was in the air for about 6 hours yesterday.

    The only other explanation I could think of is that my sinuses have been trying to act up the past few days so it may be related to that.

    huh. No, I've never had that problem. That sucks. I hope it goes away soon, Cha-lee. Glad you had a nice trip, by the way!

    There's a bug going around here, maybe you caught it when you were out. It starts with light-headedness, then moves on to stomach pains and a sore throat and fever. Only lasts a day or so, though.

    Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well.

    Charlie, did you drink lots of water? Flying, especially for more than a few hours can really dehydrate a person.

    Maybe that's it. Maybe the slight light headedness is just residual. I wasn't feeling too good earlier in the week, and I thought it was going to kill my runs Saturday. Anywayz, if the problem persists more than a couple of days I'll get checked out by a doc.

    Jersey, yep...lot's of water, and gatorade and stuff for me. I didn't know flying dehydrated a person. Learn something new every day.
