Night sweats, Light headed (dizzy) and Memory Loss

Hi everyone, I’m seeking advice please. I haven’t been diagnosed yet but do have an appointment in a few weeks with a endometriosis and pelvic pain nurse. I have obvious symptoms of endo but
I am wondering does everyone get night sweats, get dizzy and forgot what they’re doing at times? I’m thinking I might need to go get my Brain checked as well. 🤔

  1. Hello @Stace, thanks so much for reaching out. Firstly I must say we are not doctors here, so we can only speak from our own experiences. Having said that, you are not alone in the symptoms you describe. I too get night sweats, which can be due to hormonal fluctuations. They worsen when I am on my period, since my body temperature goes up during the night.

    With regards to forgetfulness, I get that too. It is what I call “brain-fog” and in my case it is linked to my chronic fatigue. When it’s bad, I struggle to find words when speaking, and I am very forgetful.

    How heavy are your periods? If mine are bad, I lose so much blood, and can become quite light-headed and dizzy.

    Could your doctor look at your hormonal levels? I think that would be a good place to start, especially regarding thyroid issues. They are very common and can be behind some of the symptoms you describe.

    I hope this helps – Jessie (team member)
