Feeling dizzy while standing up. Severe diarrhea and vomiting. Irregular heavy periods. Advice?

Hi! I've been getting very dizzy when standing up... or bending over. I've also been throwing up and having severe diarrhea about every 3 days or so with no bowel movements between. Those symptoms have been going on for about a week...I've also got issues with my period monthly.. (I've had my tubes tied) My period is VERY irregular and VERY heavy. Meaning, I have to wear a super plus absorbency tampon along with a pad because I'll go through the tampon in about an hour. This can last anywhere from 5-9 days.

Thanks for the query.
The dizziness can be due to gastroenteritis you are having. It can be due irritable bowel syndrome.
Excessive blood loss during periods can cause anemia that can also lead to dizziness.
So you better consult gynecologist and undergo physical examination and ultrasound to find out the possible cause for your problem and take treatment accordingly.
Possibly by ultrasound the problem with gastrointestinal system can also be made out.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
