Hi everyone, I unfortunately have been diagnosed with Lupus recently. I feel very alone with this and scared, I am a PSW (personal support worker) On Friday I went really dizzy and felt like I was going to faint. I wonder if anyone else has gone extremely dizzy while working and what can I do about that. I am scared I will faint at a clients house.

Hi and Welcome!
      When my fatigue gets extreme, I do experience dizziness, especially when I am at work or trying to move too fast.  But there can be a number of other reasons for dizziness.  If it persists and worsens, I would contact your doctor.  This is a great site to get both support and information.

Welcome, dockwall, I'd get dizzy spells at times. I used to get it a lot at work when I moved too fast or under stress.
I'd just sit down and wait for it to pass.
But if yours get worse please go see the doctor.

I have had a couple of episodes. Like the others usually when I'm extremely fatigued , at work and once or twice after rising in the morning. It usually fades pretty quick. But I'm with the others if they persist definitely get it checked out.
