Shortness of breath and dizziness after bending down
I noticed in the past 3 years I get shortness of breath and a dizziness feeling after repetitive bending down. It doesn't happen until after I stop bending down. Where I work I have to been down every once in a while for long periods. I do have anxiety and panic attacks but didn't know if this was causing this because ive had anxiety for about 11 years and this has never happened. I did get diagnosed with being anemic 2 and a half years ago but they have said im no longer anemic. So I was just wondering what can cause this because once it happens I feel bad for a long time after.
