Anxiety symptoms: My first guess is that you are anxious. And you are breathing fast during the spells which makes you blow off CO2 and can lead to the symptoms you describe especially the tingling. Try rebreathing into a paper bag so CO2 returns to normal for a few minutes. If this helps bingo. Discuss with your Dr. ...Read more

What can cause light headedness, tingling in arms and hands, like needles pricking your skin, heart fluttering, and anxiousness?

What can cause light headedness, tingling in arms and hands, like needles pricking your skin, heart fluttering, and anxiousness?

Hyperventilation: When you are anxious or stressed for some reasons you hyperventilate and your heart can flutter. During hyperventilation your blood chemistry changes in a negative way . You exhale to much co2 and your blood pco2 drops and this in turn decreases ionized calcium in the blood causing tingling , Decreased blood pco2 can give you light headedness. Breathing to a paper bag helps when under stress. ...Read more

Hope this answer helps. ...Read more

Dizzy, tremors, fainted, tingling in fingers and toes. EKG is OK. Any ideas?

Causes of Fainting: Possible causes could be a seizure, changes in the blood chemistry, anxiety, or changes with the nervous system. It was a good idea to check the EKG first. This does not rule out any heart-related cause, but it makes one much less likely. There is still some diagnostic work to do, chiefly because of the fainting. Hope that helps! ...Read more

The toxic drug effect is cumulative; act quickly. ...Read more

Anxiety: Anxiety attacks and panic attacks can feel exactly as you describe. At 19 anxiety is far more common than a heart attack. Heart attack is not impossible but statistically the anxiety attack would be overwhelmingly more probable in a young person.
