I feel lightheaded/dizzy very often,with hot flashes at times. I'm 21,and do have anxiety a lot  but haven't been anxious for weeks.Anxiety the cause?

Possibly: It's definitely possible that anxiety is the culprit, however that is not the only possibility. It would be a good idea to have an exam and get some labs done to make sure everything is alright with your physical health as well. Anemia, electrolyte problems, infection, medications, drugs/alcohol/tobacco can cause it as well, just to name a few. ...Read more

What causes transient elev of T-4? Symp #loss, nervous, hot flash, shaky, always hungry, off/on dizzy, headaches, tired, paraethesias off/on.

Thyroid: You are describing symptoms that are commonly seen in hyperthyroidism. If your T4 had only been transient, there are several disorders that can cause that. First on my list is Hashimotos thyroiditis. Second would be Graves disease, although this usually isn't transient. Could be vital thyroiditis. You should have additional blood work to look for specific antibodies to help make correct diagnosis ...Read more

Without : Without examining you and reviewing your complete history, it is difficult to say exactly what is causing your problems. I would first recommend you visit your prescribing physician to review your history and examine you thoroughly, as the potential causes of dizziness is fairly broad list. But from your list of recent changes, i suspect either the discontinuation of your Paxil (paroxetine) or the addition of your new supplements is likely the cause of your problems. I would recommend you stop your new supplements, and consider restarting your paxil, (paroxetine) especially if you have stopped that medicine without discussing it with your prescribing physician first.

My hot flashes are accompanied by nausea and dizziness. Is this weird?

Not weird at all: Well, 38 is a bit on the young side for menopause, but it happens. Early ovarian failure or surgical menopause can happen at any time..And the hotflashes can be followed by some nausea, dizziness, sweating etc...It is actually quite common. Most menopausal symptoms are mild, but some people have very severe symptoms requiring treatment. If bothersome to you, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

50/f having some hot flashes for about 6 months.  Now the are more frequent and intense along with dizziness and nausea. Is this common for menopause?

Menopause: Have your periods stopped? If you are entering menopause, the hot flashes are usual. Some women get these quite badly...Some do not. They are typically most pronounced the first 5 years of menopause, but can last much longer. Estrogen is the most effective way to decrease these. Discuss this with your doctor. Dizziness and nausea are not usual symptoms. This could be due to other factors. ...Read more

See PCP: Per current recommendations, your PCP might consider low dose or hormonal replacement therapy if you have no contraindications. If that is not a good option for you, certain antidepressant drugs have been proven to help and can be prescribed by your PCP. Regular exercise, low sugar and low animal protein diet, breathing exercises, hydration and acupuncture can also help. ...Read more
