Dizzy and nauseous, pins and needles feeling in hands and forearms. What's causing this ?

Last week i woke up feeling dizzy and nauseous. My body started to shake and i started to feel pins and needles in my hands and forearms. I had a fever as well and had hot and cold flushes. I took some paracetamol for the fever and this seemed to help with the other symptoms as well. Today i had these symptoms come over me all of a sudden again. I have been feeling a dizzy, nauseous and my diaphram has been very tender to touch. I have not vomited. But this dizziness and nausia comes upon me suddenly, lingers for a while and then goes away.This has happened twice in the last two weeks. Any idea of what s causing this? I also wear hard contact lenses . My vision isnt the best. Not sure if this could be contributing to the dizziness, because when i look around it sometimes seems as though the room moves with me.

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

From the description it is very difficult for a correct diagnosis. You are already tired due to flu and all and your diaphragm and chest are sore. Not vomite but have nausea and dizziness etc. You will need physician intervention and pathological investigation to find exactly what is the cause. The tingling is not seems associated with any of the other symptoms. Anywy, it is good to consult a GP.
Good luck.
