Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

This could be a type of seizures you are having.I advise you to visit your Physician / Neurologist and get evaluated properly .They may ask you to get an EEG done to know the pattern of brain waves and further decision can be made.

Take care.

I have been having tremors and body shaking. My hands and legs shake always. When I hold things they too shake and that is clearly visible. This is there always and I have never felt like it is not there. I have headache on the left side, numbness over that area, and sometimes I feel like electric shock in that area. I have balancing problem too, when I turn my head left/right, immediately I feel like falling/rotating. I have weak bones and muscles, which are causing me feeling like extremely weak. Sometimes suddenly my vision gets blurred. I started doing gym, but there also as I am feeling weak, I am not able to continue it. Strength is also very poor, when I twist hand, it makes me pain, same with other parts too. Vertigo like symptoms. I am 26y male. Please advise what this could be?

For the past two years I ve had fainting spells where my vision goes black and I fall to the floor and then start shaking. I can usually tell everything that s going on but sometimes not and it always gives me a headache after wards. Any idea what this could be?

During the last fortnight, my dr. has prescribed magnesium and alpha lipoic for migraines and biotin for dry and split nails. Now my pee smells like i eat brussel sprouts 24 hours a day. Would any of these vitamins cause this odour? I am 50 years old and have stopped having any menopausal symptoms for 1 year. They started at age 44 and now are done. Any idea? Thanks in advance.

My husband was prescribed an additional dose of Lyrica. He was taking two pills in the evening, and was prescribed an additional one in the morning. He suffers from arthritis and nerve based migraines and general nerve pain stemming both from the arthritis and several bulging dics in the neck. My question is this...would the extra dose cause an increase in appetite and an energy spike? Will this ease off? Is this something that he should report to his doctor?

Hi. I m a 33 year old female who 8 weeks ago fainted in work whilst having a migraine. This has happened before so I was not that concerned. However, roughly 4 weeks later, I fainted again. This time no migraine. I assumed due to it being around my period, it was due to that. However the last two weeks I ve had constant headaches at different places on the head. I ve been constantly dizzy and on times almost fainted. I ve been to see my doctor who s sent me for blood tests and an ECG. All tests came back fine. He did say my blood pressure was low but it always has been so didn t think that would be anything to do with it. I ve suffered with migraines for about 6 years but never had headaches or dizzy spells as bad as this. For the past 4 days I ve nearly blacked out every day and the back of my neck and bottom of head feel like there s loads of pressure. This feeling of nearly blacking out happened in front of the doctor and he said that it could be because the room we were in was really warm, that I was dehydrated. He also said that I maybe suffering with vestibular migraines. I ve looked up the condition and the blacking out every day and I m still not sure that this is what I have. I m concerned about the headaches and the constant dizziness which has just appeared all of a sudden.

My wife recently had cortizone shots in her L4 L5 disks and has suffered migraines ever since. It has been almost a month now and her doctor seemed to be dumbfounded with no answer. Now she is sick all the time and in constant pain with her back and migraines. She already takes percisets and oxycotyn for pain but it does very little for her. Any suggestions on how she can get rid of her migraines? she is already taking Rizatriptan for her migraines but they are constant and make her feel terrible. Also how long will this last?
