I am a woman, 34, presenting following symptoms:

  1. Noticed feeling like my head feeling like it is shaking / swaying back and forth. No pain, just tiring (2 weeks ago)
  2. My period has been 10 days late (usually on the dot)
  3. Had ring worm infection and treated with Avezol (past 4 weeks since 9 June)
  4. Received my Covid19 vaccine on 23 June (11 days ago)
  5. Had my full body check up in March, no major health issues presented at the time

Please advise on what it might be? Should I go for some scans?

Thank you.

Hello,
Thank you for reaching out to us.

Seems like you have been experiencing symptoms of dizziness and delayed period. We will try to help you out. It seems unlikely that your symptoms of dizziness and delayed period are related, unless it usually happens before your period (pre-menstrual syndrome).

The cause for your dizziness could be due to :

  • Dehydration
  • Lack of nutrition
  • Anemia
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Side effect of some medications or vaccination

The reason for your delayed period could be due to :

  • Stress
  • Sudden weight gain or weight loss
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Vigorous exercise
  • PCOS

We need more information regarding your health history for us to come up with a diagnosis. We advise you to refer to a doctor regarding this issue so that it can be managed accordingly.
