hoping someone might have some ideas.. our bathroom is on the second story so i have to take the stairs from time to time. now when i get upstairs i notice i'm very dizzy and sometimes to the point of passing out.
is this cardio related and if so any ideas. thank you in advance. oh, forgot to mention, i'm 49 y/o and for
the most part in fairly good health. thank you again.

Those are great questions, but are questions that would probably be best to ask your physician. The people posting on this site are not physicians. Any advice that is given here is given by lay people based on their experiences in dealing with the same situations and based on their research. Some people may feel breathless with only mild exercise (for example, climbing stairs), even though they do not have a medical condition. Others may have advanced lung disease but never feel short of breath.

I am sorry to read of your problem but please do see you physician for a medical screening exam to rule out any serious physical problems you may have developed.
