Health problems

I have this friend who has been experiencing a weird health issue lately. Since a few weeks she has been feeling sort of dizzy (i don't know if it is the right word).She says it is more like a swaying sensation and she feels like she is trembling inside. The weird thing is that she only feels it when she is still, like when she is sitting down or lying.She has been to different doctors but no medicine is helping her out. i would like to know if there are people here who have experienced that and if you know what can cause that.

Thanks in advance

I get unexplained dizzy spells, usually accompanied by headaches and nausea, but that's usually when I'm moving or get up suddenly. Does your friend feel disoriented or get blurred vision? Or is it more of an off-balance feeling?

Maybe it could be a problem with the inner ear. Is it accompanied by headaches or visual disturbances? Has she had any sort of head injury?

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All

Thanks for the reply And sorry to hear about your problem. Have you found a solution yet?

My friend told me, she feels trembling 'inside' and then she has this sensation of swaying, like the bed or the chair is moving under her. It is only when she is still that she feels like that, as long as she is moving, she feels quite ok. She has been to a doctor to check her inner ear, no problem was found, and no head injury thank God.

My first thought...... Is your friend pregnant???

Other than that there are so many possibilites......

Has she had a blood test to illiminate some kind of viral infection?

If no viral infection is present I would suspect she is suffering low blood pressure....which may not be evident when the doctor takes a reading at the clinic.

Another possibilty is an allegic reaction of some kind....maybe something in her diet?

She could simply be stressed out.....is she worried or having a serious personal problem at the moment?

Nope she is not pregnant. I know she took some blood tests but i don't know for what. but i know she is taking a medicine to control and regularise her heartbeat. might be the cause....can medicine like that cause low blood pressure? and as you said, might be stress too. thanks so much for ur help. just wish i could help her cause i know stuff like that can be really disturbing.

Could be: cardiac arrhythmia / viral labyrinthitis / stress related / panic attacks / a number of other things.

Make sure she's had her thyroid function checked (I'm sure they'll have done this.)

What's wrong with her heartbeat ?

More importantly, how old is she ?

low blood sugar was the first thing i thought of

here are the causes....

What causes hypoglycemia?

Hypoglycemia is most commonly a complication of diabetes treatment (diabetic hypoglycemia). You can develop hypoglycemia by taking too much insulin or other diabetes medications.

Hypoglycemia also may result from less common causes, including medications, such as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), quinine sulfate, and salicylates (including aspirin); diseases that affect the pancreas, liver, or other organs; and inherited problems with metabolism.


What are the symptoms of hypoglycemia?

The symptoms of low blood sugar may be mild, moderate, or severe.

Mild hypoglycemia can cause nausea, a jittery or nervous feeling, cold and clammy skin, and a rapid heartbeat.

Moderate hypoglycemia often makes you feel irritable, anxious, or confused. You may have blurred vision, feel unsteady, and have difficulty walking.

Severe hypoglycemia can lead to loss of consciousness, seizures, and coma and may be fatal.

Some medications may mask symptoms of low blood sugar, including beta-blockers, which are often used to treat heart conditions and high blood pressure.


... ask her the type of medicine she is taking.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Sounds like an inner ear problem. And that can be fixed with a trip to a Ear, Nose, Throat doctor. If it's not that it could be something known as vertigo, and my aunt has that and it never goes away.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

thanks again. i will have to ask her about the medicine's name. i just know it is to control the heartbeat. i think sometimes for no reason, it races. i don't think it is the inner ear, she already had this checked. (she is 26 btw)

thanks again for the replies. i really appreciate
