What is the cause of periodic burning smell with bouts of vertigo and hand tremors in a 60 plus ?

Thank You. I have been experienceing phantom smells like burning off and on for about a year. Also for the last 3 years I have had bouts of vertigo , not all the time but about every 2 or 3 months. And I have tremors in my hands . Can these things be related and should I see a doctor for them. I am a 65 year old woman. Thank you for your help.

dear hipshot, welcome to hcm.
Please mention if ur a diabetic/hypertensive or on any medications for any other complaints or issues so far or if u were previously taking any medications for a long duration.
If not, I kindly suggest you to get the following tested.
- Sr.Lipid profile,
- HbA1C
- Urine routine & microscopic examination.
then u can consult the nearest geriatrician (health care specialist of elderly) for a better review and best opinion and treatment after assessing ur clinical status.
thank you:-)
