Can giving blood make you tired?

I had blood taken on Wednesday afternoon and I have been completely exhausted since. Could that be why?

Yes... definitely!

Drink lots of water (to replenish your fluids) and apple juice (sugar) and leafy greens (iron).

Good deed! Chat Icon

I donated blood last month and I think it took me 2 days to fully recover from it, I was dizzy and tired for about two days after it

I feel the same way and I get really bad headaches that last all day. I have to remember to keep drinking fluids.

Oh yes it can! I also find having a nice steak dinner helps replenish me as well!
