I am having small craps and feel flat and light headed after 10 months of training. I have been cleared by my doctor and have normal range blood pressure. While I could take something just for the crapping I wounder if you have something that would cover other problems I might get latter from the physical training and reduced food. I workout for 1 hour and then do a 5k walk at least 4 days a week and have lost 47 kilo's These problems have just started in the last few weeks , posted on 25 November 2014. Report Abuse
