Re: Can heart rate increase cause dizziness/faintness/grey outs

Your symptoms do sound like pre-syncope (light headed/fainting feeling) due to blood flow, rather than any other kind of problem. Here are a few things to think about:

Do you drink enough water?

Do you drink a lot of caffeine?

Do you eat healthy enough, and often enough?

When you have GI symptoms, are you more likely to have this lightheadedness upon standing? I assume you experience diareah with your GI problems, and that often causes dehydration.

All of these can contribute to your symptoms, so pay attention to how these things effect you.

Your standing blood pressure and pulse seem a little high, but I am not the best person to help you with cardiovascular health. Someone will chine in to offer more assistance on that regard...
