Hi nancy;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The dizziness;shaking;weak feeling;sweaty hands can be due to many things like:-
smoking;drugs;drinking alcohol;hypoglycaemia;panic attacks;generalized weakness due to anaemia also.It will be better if you consult a doctor ASAP and get examined to find the cause and then get treated accordingly.

I have been having some difficulties with breathing and discomfort in my chest -- working with my primary dr. to find out the cause -- at this point they suspect paricarditis. Had an echocardiogram done Friday and wore a haltor monitor for 24 hrs. waiting on test results. My question is 2 fold - 1) if I have paricarditis, how is it treated, and 2) if it isn t what could this be? (they have ruled out lung problems with xray and ct scan of lungs)
