    Please I always feel dizzy after I talk for a long time (20 minutes or more). Is that also a symptom. This kind of feeling also comes when I stay in a place with high temperature and it makes my head to be literally hot sometimes.

    Hello & welcome, @Okechukwu Chukwu.

    What you are describing sounds like it is independent of whether you have autism or not. It is not regularly associated with autism.

    Maybe your dizziness is a result of too much sensory overload or being around too many people. Does it get better if you go into a quiet room?

    I always feel like i should just put my head in front of the air conditioner to cool it down for a while anytime i have a long talk with people. It also happens when I use a head phone. If i dont rest my head very well after such moments, it may lead to a seizure.

    I am not questioning whether you have autism or not, but you should bring dizziness to your regular doctor.

    Okay... Thank you. I just felt the need to ask as its related to my brain, apart from the other symptoms i regularly experience.

    Dizziness can be a symptom of dehydration, too.

    It could maybe be anxiety related. It used to freak me out, but I confronted my demons and am a teacher right now.

    Like a sweat pouring down my body and heart ready to explode feeling. No dizziness thankfully. Through exposure it got better.

    I get dizziness a lot from stress. Just make sure you're eating and drinking enough to rule out blood sugar issues. But if you get stressed a lot, it's quite a common symptom. I know that does little to improve matters. But if you remind yourself regularly that you'll be ok - it won't have such a hold of you compared to if you fear the symptom. A symptom born of stress will only last longer, or feel more intense if you react to it with more stress.

    I don't get dizzy, but certainly do feel overwhelmed after chatting for a long time, but that is due to not being myself at the time.

    I tend to get hot and panicky with dread, when something goes wrong.

    I've never seen that listed in any medical literature as a symptom of autism. I would think it most likely has another cause, perhaps a medical condition.

    It’s cause your not breathing. If your just talking then you are not breathing during that time. This will make you dizzy. Just like holding your breath will do the same.

    Of course I could be wrong, or right.

    Welcome! I also concur that it's not likely related to AS but you may wish to seek medical advice if it's a recurring issue.

    Why does it matter if it's related to autism or not?

    This is not a known symptom of autism. As other suggested, it could be due to stress/anxiety, or not breathing properly when you are speaking.

    However, you should definitely see a doctor about this to rule out other causes. It could be something relatively harmless, or it could be something serious.
