Do I need to worry that I’m short of breath and getting dizzy often?

I’ve checked my blood pressure and it’s slightly low but not by enough to be concerning. Any ideas what could be wrong? Please don’t just tell me “go and see a doctor” because I’m going to, but it’s a while before my appointment.

    There’s a few things this could be, maybe you have allergies, your blood oxygen levels may be low, it could be a sign of stress or anxiety.

    You could get a finger oxygen meter to test your blood oxygen levels, anything below 90 would be a concern, and because you’ve been dizzy that’s a sign you could pass out, I would take things easy for now until you get to see the doctor just in case. If you start feeling like you’re going to pass out, tell someone right away or lay yourself flat on the floor. If your breathing gets worse then I would go to the hospital
