Fibromyalgia and sex
An_249473 posted:
Ok, I'm 28 and was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I've noticed that after sex I get really dizzy. I'm not sure if its normal with fibro or if its some other issue like medications.

It could be the change in blood flow through your body; I have fibromyalgia and Postural Orthstatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). When I stand up or sit up, all the blood drops to my feet and I get lightheaded, then my blood pressure and heart rate increase drastically to pump the blood back to my brain. It may be that you are experiencing symptoms from the blood rushing to and from your genitals during sex (orgasm).
