Low temperature and diarrhea in my 10 year old. Just come on quickly. She is shaking & very weak feeling. Very pale. What do I do? Temp is 92.3

Rectal temp: Your temperature reading sounds inaccurate. If you use a good thermometer and take a rectal temperature, and if it is still low, go to the er immediately - there are possibilities like e.Coli sepsis. You don't say if she is in pain, or how many bowel movements she has had. Hydrate her and take to er if she can't tolerate liquids. She needs hydration. Check that temp again;go to er if abnormal. ...Read more

Tightness in upper chest and throat head ache has shaking feel weak. Could it be over active thyroid or another blood clot in lung or lack of iron?

Tightness in upper chest and throat head ache has shaking feel weak. Could it be over active thyroid or another blood clot in lung or lack of iron?

Yes, yes & notsomuch: The majority of your symptoms are concerning for potential overactive thyroid or pe (clot in lung), but could be caused by other things that are less serious and unrelated. The iron issue is much less likely the source, unless extremely severe and ongoing. Should be seen in er w/chest discomfort for evaluation. ...Read more

My whole left side keeps cramping and leaves me shaking weak and feel like I have no strength in left side. What could it be?

Side cramps: Ask yourself if you recently injured that area? Any bruising there? Have you recently done any strenuous activity? If so, it could simply be cramps and will go away. You mentioned that it leaves you shaking...are you referring to "chills".
Any fever, urinary symptoms like burning/having to urinate more often or urgency to urinate? ...Read more

I was cut by a nail 5 years ago. And I did not get a tetnus injection. Now am feeling very dizzy, shaking, weak, and headache. Could it be tetnus?

I was cut by a nail 5 years ago. And I did not get a tetnus injection. Now am feeling very dizzy, shaking, weak, and headache. Could it be tetnus?

This can not: Be tetanus from an injury you had 5 years ago. It sounds like you might have a viral illness. I would recommend that you see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment. You also should get a tetanus booster while you're there, if you haven't had one in 10 years. ...Read more

I have hyperadrenergic pots and am in Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal. Went to hospital with chest pain and they said everything looked okay. Vomiting, sweating, shaking, weak, cp, resting hr 90-100, ectopics. Safe?

I have hyperadrenergic pots and am in Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal. Went to hospital with chest pain and they said everything looked okay. Vomiting, sweating, shaking, weak, cp, resting hr 90-100, ectopics. Safe?

Not safe...: Pots is without a proper algorithm of treatment but benzo use, especially xanax (alprazolam) can only be problematic, short and long term. Ask for a smooth taper of Klonopin (because stopping benzos cold turkey is not safe either) with a concurrent start of an snri like cymbalta/effexor or check out this link:

Is it normal to wake from nocturnal simple partial complex seizures shaking, nauseous, dizzy and weak, heart racing, disoriented? Not on meds?

Is it normal to wake from nocturnal simple partial complex seizures shaking, nauseous, dizzy and weak, heart racing, disoriented? Not on meds?

Classification?: Your description mixes a lot of jargon which on one hand is very specific but does not go together on the other hand. I.E. There is no simple complex seizure, either it is simple or complex. If you are using these terms I presume you have been diagnosed. If this seizure is a new occurrence then it would be important to look into why you had a seizure, I would recommend to discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I've been experiencing a lot of shaking and weakness, like an earthquake. Why is this happening?

Possibilities: Perhaps there is a hyperthyroid condition, maybe you have a muscle disorder. Parkinson's disease can cause shaking and it seems like one is weak. Benign essential tremors run in families, and could be considered. Cerebellar problems may present in this fashion also. Complex, so you'd best consult with your physician and get this pinned down. ...Read more

You have a hangover.: Next time, moderate your intake, and decrease your consumption significantly. Alcohol can relax you, and items such as wine can enhance a meal, but over usage just destroys all the niceties, and furthermore, intoxication is risky. Never drive when drinking alcohol, and never ride with an intoxicated driver. ...Read more

What can you do when you've taken a 5 hour energy and a double shot of espresso with chocolate feeling very weak and bad shaking

It: It sounds like you have taken too much caffeine. The only thing I can think of is eating a little bit of food at this point. If you develop an irregular heart beat recommend you be evaluated. I know people just think of these as drinks, but they are actually powerful drugs. Too much caffeine can be dangerous, just as it can be dangerous to overdose on medications that you are prescribed. Recommend that you moderate future use. I hope you have started to feel better by the you read this. ...Read more

For the past 3 days, after I've eaten, I feel weak and start shaking slightly. I'm a generally healthy person and have never had an issue with blood sugars. I drive an 18 wheeler and keep a mostly healthy diet. I do balance good and junk foods too. I quit

Should be evaluated: I think you should discuss this with your doctor. Key questions include, "How long after you have eaten? ", "Does it matter what you eat? ", "Does diabetes run in your family? ", "Are you overweight/obese? " It is very important to exclude dangerous fluctuations in blood sugar, especially with your career. Some blood sugar testing after eating is in order. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Random shaking and increased heartbeat during sex. Is that muscle weakness?

Random shaking and increased heartbeat during sex. Is that muscle weakness?

Sexy heart: A few things could be happening. Sex releases natural chemicals that can speed things up. They include natural opiates like endorphins and Adrenalin that can cause rapid heart beat. Adrenalin can also cause your blood sugar to drop (hypoglycemia), which can also manifest with these symptoms. I would also rule-out underlining heart disease as a preventative measure- do this first! ...Read more
