Is an ER visit advisable for dizziness and debilitating headaches?

For several years now, and increasing every year, I have had an increasingly distended abdomen, nausea, pain, fatigue, and more recently (past few weeks) I have been experiencing severe dizziness and debilitating headaches (not migraines). I have a colonoscopy and endoscopy scheduled for 1/22, but am wondering if I need to go to the Urgent Care or Emergency Room before that.

Hello

Thank you for trusting HCM

How old are you??
Are you hypertensive??
Are you diabetic??
Since when you're suffering from above problem??

your symptoms are mostly suggestive of somatoform /somatization disorders.

Other possibilities like inflammatory Bowel disease, malobsorption syndromes, infection etc..

Until complete history and examination it is difficult to say what it is.

Please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.


Take care
