Hypoglycemia?  About 2 days ago  I began shaking and then today it was horrible I was weak in legs and shaking in hands very scared, 290 miles from ER

Glucometer will tell: If u have a glucometer, u shd be able to tell if u have hypoglycemia. Usually when ur blood sugar is low, u get other symptoms like extreme fatigue, sweating, hunger as well. If u r diabetic, then a glucometer is a must to organize ur eating habits & medicines. In the short term, drinking juice or soda will raise ur blood sugar quickly; however, long-term u need a doc to help manage ur diet & meds ...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:

I had night sweats for a couple of nights,bp is 140/80,pulse is 75,02 level is 92,irregular heart beat,feeling weak all over,pain in both legs,age 64?

Get checked.: Night sweats, if new, can be due to a fever & if you have a change in your heart beat (if it has not been irregular commonly before) you need to get checked or call your doc today. There are many reasons possible to explain your symptoms, but no way to sort them out here. Despite our fondest hopes, a 150 character question & a 400 character response cannot solve all the world's ills! Peace cures! ...Read more

When I was trying to sleep I had some internal shaking near my abdomen and legs. I'm not really stressed so what could it be?

Exercise?: There are not many details to go by in this question. If you were doing a lot of abdominal and leg exercise earlier in the day the muscle might shake from fatigue. Restless legs can give a sensation of movement. Shaking is a not a familiar symptom of internal disease, or urinary infections, unless the whole body shook, and you had a fever. ...Read more

Dunno but ...: It is a Cox-2 inhibitor and not approved for use in the USA because of potential side effects. I don't know how serious your scoliosis is but it might be serious enough now that it is compromising your heart function and that is the source of your problem. I would try to be evaluated by a good cardiologist and go from there. ...Read more
