When i drive for a long period of time it seems when i get out of my truck i feel my blood really start flowing making me feel faint and afraid of driving.Is it stress or blood pressure, blood flow ,now i worry about it alot.Anyone have this happen to them? Your help would be appreciated.When i go to the hospital everything seems ok,maybe because i'm relaxed.I do feel weakness in my legs,muscles and i have hep-c,not sure if it's related.Thanks!

  • Hi,thanks for answering but it's more of a circulation problem i think.Truck is good and it doesn't happen all the time.It's been a few years now since it happen.I went to Vancouver last summer and it didn't happen.I think 'cause i was relaxed and i payed attention to the way i was sitting and getting out of my truck every 2 hours.I went to Toronto last week and within 2 hours when i got out i felt it.Then on the way back i drove for over 3 hours without getting out of my truck and it didn't happen.I know that when standing with my head tilted back as if reaching up over my head my blood pressure drops and i start to feel dizzy .I seen a doctor and thats what he said and that was it,he never really told me why and i'm not sure if this is the reason.Maybe stress too!
