Tingly hands and lips making me feel light headed. How to get over this quickly?

Tingly hands and lips making me feel light headed. How to get over this quickly?

Slow breathing: Sounds like you are hyperventilating which is breathing very rapidly or excessively deep breaths. This changes the acid level in our blood and this can lead to the tingly, lightheaded feeling. First think about why you might be breathing rapidly. If needed the quickest way to reverse this is to breath into a paper bag for a few minutes. If this is happening often, discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

What causes one to get light headed and experience poor circulation in the hands and feet?

Could be many things: There can be many causes, such as low blood pressure or variations in the blood pressure when one changes position from sitting to standing (orthostatic hypotension), or low pulse rate (bradycardia).

I sometimes get a heart rate between 110 - 120 bpm without doing any exercise, I often feel light headed and my hands start to shake at the same time?

I sometimes get a heart rate between 110 - 120 bpm without doing any exercise, I often feel light headed and my hands start to shake at the same time?

Panic Attack: At that heart rate, your heart is probably reacting to a stimulus rather than being the cause. Your best diagnosis would be a reaction of your body to stress or a panic attack. If you are breathing fast at the time, that can cause lightheadedness and shaking of the hands. When this happens, try to hold your breath or at least slow it down and relax. If it persists, you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Dysautonomia. Normal BP/HR. Light headed sat down, standing and less laid. If I push stomach in with my hands, I quickly feel more normal? Why is this?

The gastric and card: Iac nerves/arteries/veins run parallel together from the stomach to the heart. The vagus nerve is nearby too, and helps reduce heart beats, and slowing the heart. The trunk of the vagus is by the end of the trachea where the cardiac nerve arises. So I'm glad you found a way to help you feel more normal. Good job! Everything in our body is related to other nearby structures. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel light-headed, and have numb arms, hands, and legs when very upset?

Is it normal to feel light-headed, and have numb arms, hands, and legs when very upset?
