Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

You need to see a doctor.: Undoubtedly, you have experienced a lot of stress in the recent past and presently have a child to care for, which does not help. Not withstanding the possibility of a PTSD / anxiety related disorder, my recommendation is that you see any physician in your vicinity. Family Med, Internal Med, Neurologist, ENT, etc. You begin by telling them of your current poor balance, loss of coordination, dizziness and extremity numbness only. This warrants an MRI of the head. You need a physical exam and some bloodwork done. Based on your evaluation and the test results, that physician will direct you to the necessary specialist if it is indeed warranted. ...Read more

Counting: Counting calories and keeping a food journal can be two of the most effective ways to lose weight. Being accountable for what you put in your mouth by writing it down and being aware of calorie values will make you think about what you are eating. It is important to eat a good variety of foods, so as long as you count your calories, nothing necessarily has to be "off-limits". Get a kitchen scale and weigh your foods in order to know exactly how much you are eating and therefore how many calories. The healthiest diets involve whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, fish and moderate dairy. Sugars and added oils/butter should be used sparingly. You need to eat at least three meals a day, though some people will advocate more frequent, smaller meals. A typical sedentary woman your age needs to eat 1800cal/day. Since you have 4 little ones you are probably running around a bit which means you can probably eat slightly more - up to 2000 cal/day. Good luck! ...Read more
