you might feel a little dizzy for a couple of minutes. in some cases you don't feel a thing.
Donating blood is much like having blood drawn-for the patient. The staff has much more to do. A tourniquet is placed around your arm and a vein located, blood begins to 'come out' and fill up a bag. When enough blood has filled the bag, the IV is removed from your arm, you eat or drink something -OR BOTH.
Like the other poster said, you might feel a bit dizzy for awhile, but this will pass. It is not abnormal at all and is the reason that they don't want you to leave until you feel fine! Easy.
your arm may feel heavy and may feel uncomfortable especially when the needle is still stick on you. But after 15 minutes or so it's finish. You're usually on a bed so don'\t get up quickly. You might feel dizzy if you do this. Rehydrating after is very important.
On the other hand, after donating blood, there is a sense of accomplishment that you have helped someone else in need. There's a shortage of blood donors. So donate as soon as you can.

What can cause dizzy spells besides low blood sugar and diet?Occasionally, I have some dizziness when I stand and not sure if it would be helped by realignment of my spine. I know it's probably not inner ear related but am open to suggestions.
