Which cardiac problem your having? are you on drugs for seizures? Possible causes are like vestibular apparatus dysfunction or hypotension or myocardial dysfunction or muscle imbalance or posterior circulation stroke etc. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use tablet vertin 16 mg thrice a day for five days. also get it done ECG, CT scan brain,serum electrolytes or hemoglobin status etc. If you're symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

I have had some symptoms coming and going since the end of fall and ended up in bed and a wheelchair for about a week around Christmastime, when it was too difficult to walk regularly or have strength for everything like holding up my head. I became quite ill over the holidays: off balance, almost falling, general weakness and fatigue, fluctuations in appetite, variations in sleep, jaw tightness (mostly at night), left forearm shakes, incredibly severe headaches coming and going/varying in strength and regularity, mood/personality occasional outbursts. I seemed to have gotten better. I am worried this may be recurring as the left arm has been experiencing some pain and the shaking started again last week with the headaches coming and going, some disorientation again. I almost fainted while mending some clothes, even though I was sitting over the weekend. I am thinking perhaps it is extreme stress, but I am almost having lapses of space/time/judgment and its cost me my job. I cannot figure this out. There are small noticeable parts like confusion between fingers typing and people s names, recall. I am incredibly clear on some things, yet fairly blank of confused on others, this seems unlike me and some others have noticed, while other times I am seemingly normal. I do not feel as though I have sufficient consistency of care and would appreciate thorough assistance. Thank you.

I have recurring episodes where I am severely cold, shivering and teeth chattering, body aches, headaches. When I wake up the next morning, the headache is usually still there, and I feel like I have been beaten all over with a cricket bat YYYY@YYYY
