    Feel light headed

    I have tendency to have low blood pressure when I ride up hill. I would feel dizzy. I have have to rest for 10 min to remain my breathing pattern. I ate a large breakfast before ride.

    Does anyone feel light headed?

    I feel light-headed... just before I pass out.

    Eat a small/easily-digested snack before you ride.
    Otherwise your body will be trying to do two efforts -- digesting a large meal and feeding the muscles -- with a finite amount of blood, which doesn't leave much for the 'ol brain to work with.

    It's a lesson I seem to have to re-learn every Spring.

    Did your breakfast include any Devil's lettuce?

    In all seriousness, I can't eat a lot before I ride. I either get reflux or I feel like I am going to vomit.

    Push the fluids, keep solids to a minimum until afterwards. Also, skip the MickyD's. That **** isn't good for anyone.

    Another wonderful troll thread...

    My troll thread reply: Picard, going by the example of the diet you have supplied above, you likely have clogged arteries. Go directly to the ER.

    Raw quail, ostrich or flamingo eggs works best. Avoid chicken and goose eggs, they have bacteria in them unless washed in lukewarm water. Use only luke warm water, do not use Luke Skywalker warm water.

    Wow, that's a lot of food to be digesting while climbing! I ride completely fasted. Once you get past the bonk... mental clarity and endurance soars.

    How do you know it's low blood pressure only when you ascend?
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    That's highly unlikely Once your heart starts pumping more blood (therefore your HR goes up), your blood pressure rises. And it rises up to really high values (on my last Vo2max test it was in low 300 when reaching max HR). So unless your blood system is not human, or if you consider "riding up hill" as taking lift to top of the hill, then it's highly unlikely you will have low blood pressure once you start putting more physical effort into this Feeling dizzy will therefore most likely have some other issues then low blood pressure.

    I assume cuz of the blood pressure meter on his Strava dashboard app? I think it's the one right next to the "weight-of-head" meter.

    If you have low pressure you need a bigger pump or smaller tubes. Do you have tubes that are too big?

    Wayyyyyy too much salt, dude. That's probably more salt than they recommend for one day.

    Then again, trolls might need a lot of salt. I'm not familiar with their digestive requirements.

    You ever think about eating better before a ride? Your car runs like crap if you put salt water in it, same with your body.

    Was it ever either? This is a cry for attention. Therapy is recommended.

    I thought it was kinda funny at first. But we're definitely getting into therapy mode now.

    I assume it is low blood pressure. I had similar issue when I get up from bed sometimes and I feel light headed. It stabilize after I rest while sitting down. The issue did not happen frequently during the ride. It happened twice. I literally felt dizzy.

    Too much salt.

    See a doctor, take a few years off from mtbr.

    Could be gravity, lack of oxygen, dehydration... I think everyone covered it.

    Clearly you're not getting enough lard in your diet. I'd suggest more authentic refried beans made with lots of lard and bacon grease and fresh tortillas made with lard. Daily. Don't forget to add lots of cheddar cheese. If you up your lard intake, the problem will solve itself.

    I Google the side effects of citalopam, antidepressant that I am taking now. It causes drowsiness, difficult breathing , blurred vision, increased thirst, increased hunger. I have all these symptoms

    Wow...what a thread!!!

    Seriously if you think you have low BP and are already on prescription meds why would you hope a MTBR crowd could help?
    Stop riding and go see the doctor. This is what anyone should do and has nothing to do with riding. Your diet sucks, your mentality about your health is horrible and your resource for answers is just plain wrong.
    No offence but seriously, what a dumb question to ask anyone but a doctor.

    It is not a dumb question unless you ask this crowd with hopes of a valid answer. It's like asking a Jew about a pork recipe. Seriously now. Ask a doctor not MTBR.
