Re: Vertigo? Not sure what, but need advice.
Hi. Just wanted to add (i'm not a doctor either), please try not to attribute EVERY symptom you're feeling to whatever is causing the dizziness. It's possible that your feelings of shakiness and coldness are related to anxiety (caused by the dizziness). I dont get shaky but sometimes i get really cold, esp my extremeties, and nauseous, but the two generally occur together, and usually during and after me feeling uptight and panicky because i'm either dizzy or fatigued from the dizziness. Remember that when you're uptight or anxious your body starts preparing for escape (whether you like it or not - a horrible feeling), and a major part of that is the blood leaving your extremeties and travelling to protect your vital organs, and that can leave you feeling pretty cold. And, being aware of that feeling can make you panic even more. It's such a vicious circle and i really feel for you. but just know that most of us on this forum have experienced it, so dont assume the worst (blood clot, tumour etc) but seek assurance from your doc.
It's really important to try to separate the symptoms in this way otherwise you'll have a meltdown. Good luck, we're all in the same boat here x
