I have had sickness feeling for five day now n tremors on the night what could this be ?

Get to a doctor: I think it could be potentially A LOT of things from your description but what you DON'T want this to be is some type of simple or uncomplicated upper respiratory infection or something else that could easily be treated but for whatever distraction is left and then, complicates to pneumonia or urosepsis. ...Read more

Got a video of it? Need more info. Perhaps you need some testing. ...Read more

Rapid heart rate: From your description it is unclear what may be happening. A fast heartbeat >100 beats per minute could be due to exercise, nervousness, pain, lung problems, heart problems, or a list of other things. It is best you go seek medical attention as soon as possible. An exam and EKG are warranted. Good luck. ...Read more

If the extremities violently contract or the patient is tired all of the time from sleeping a professional should be seen. Rarely they are indicators of severe basal ganglia disorders such as parkinson's. See a neurologist if worried. ...Read more

I've been taking 20mg of Amitriptyline for pain for 2 weeks. It's giving me a major body tremor at night.Should I discontinue?

Discuss: with prescriber. It's not clear what you mean by major body tremor. This dose of amitriptyline doesn't typically cause something like that, but it may be interacting with other medicines, or it may just be an unusual reaction. Talk to determine what it is, the cause, and what should be done. You certainly shouldn't have to live with it. ...Read more
