What causes dizziness while suffering from anemia?

I was diagnosed with anemia long ago. The last time my levels were checked they were at 9. I am feeling really light headed, dizzy, and I am currently menstruating anf am a heavy bleeder, filling super size tampons in an hour or so... how do I know when I need to go to the hospital? I am afraid I am going to pass out.

you are an anemic . and your HB count being 9 is a low count and since you said your a heavy bleeder , I suggest you take a healthy diet and lots of food and juices and jaggery during that period and don't stress much .
also take
Tab orofer 1-0-0
tab folic acid 0.1microgm 1-0-0 on a daily basis . they r the supplements of iron to replenish your iron stores
consuming these tablets you may get clay coloured stools , so don't worry much about that
Take rest
