Can anaemia cause dizziness and nausea?

i am 15, 5'6, 125 lbs, and have been anemic in the past. last night my boyfriend and i were talking and he asked why my eyes were dialating and getting really small. this was going on really fast. then i passed out. i couldnt stay on my feet or talk afterwards. i was extreamly dizzy and nauseous. thats all i remember for the rest of the night. when i woke up the next morning i was sluring my words very badly and my head was pounding. could anemia be causing this?

Welcome to H.C.M. I am Dr Krishna Dubey.

My dear friend, anemia has multiple symptoms and your all symptoms are looking in favor of anemia.
In anemia ,patients complaint of Extreme fatigue,Pale skin,Weakness,Headache,
Dizziness or lightheadedness.

I advise you to do complete blood count test with peripheral blood film to rule out anemia and its type.

You will be fine soon.

Thanx for query.
