Pregnant?: Pregnancy is listed on your conditions. There are many changes that occur, especially during the 3rd trimester, that change the body’s blood pressure & fluid handling system. These could result in dizzy spells, especially when standing quickly, or lying in a certain position. There are many different causes of dizziness. Call 911 for passing out or worsening dizzy, otherwise see your Dr. ASAP.

Cluster headaches: Assuming your pain is in your head, you could be suffering from cluster headaches. Cluster headaches are severely painful headaches that usually occur in cycles, often at night. They are usually on one side of the head or eye and more common in men. Cycles of headaches may last weeks to months, with pain free periods lasting months to years. Does this sound like what you are experiencing?

Can stuttering be caused by emotional trauma or head surgeries? No matter how many specialists I see I can't shake my severe stutter. 

Can stuttering be caused by emotional trauma or head surgeries? No matter how many specialists I see I can't shake my severe stutter. 

Stuttering biologic?: I'm not an expert in this area but a psychiatrist I knew treated himself successfully with a newer antipsychotic medication. This off label use has many risks & highly recommend other attempts with relaxation and antianxiety medications first. But a low dose of a second generation antipsychotic might be worth a try in severe stuttering. This may be a clue that stuttering is a movement disorder.

I have motor tics where I shake my head hard in a nodding motion hundreds of times a day. Can this be cause of mild headaches in the morning recently?

I have motor tics where I shake my head hard in a nodding motion hundreds of times a day. Can this be cause of mild headaches in the morning recently?

Yes, I think so.: I have several patients on ssris with severe head tremor who get headaches from it. It makes sense to me that there could be a direct link. Also, your med (zoloft) is known to have a tremor side effect so you might want to ask your doctor to help you switch or find non-med therapy. I know this all must be difficult for you and I really hope you can feel better soon.

Get shakes, not diabetic, happen sometimes b4 or after eat, .comes from inside, feel tired, light headed. Causes? Now headache

Feeling shaky: After a meal can occur with reactive hypoglycemia. I 3 hour glucose tolerance test should be able to rule this in or out. If this test does not disclose the underlying problem you need to expand the work up (thyroid disorders, gluten sensitivity, other food allergies etc)

I have a nervous tic where I shake my head, sometimes constantly. Can this cause a brain bleed? I have a lot of anxiety.

I have a nervous tic where I shake my head, sometimes constantly. Can this cause a brain bleed? I have a lot of anxiety.

No: Your habit will not cause a bleed in the brain. 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. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

What causes your head, arms, hands, and legs to shake uncontrolablly? Ihave pn, fibromyalgia, &tn. Going to mayo to find out why.75+lbs loss since aug.2012.

Muscle weakness: #fibromyalgia is a multivariant caused disorder, and loss of global muscle tone is participant in evolution of the condition. A significant weight loss imputes loss of protein and muscle. Weak muscles temble in efforts; keeping body mass central in a being struggling to remain upright within the gravitational field.

I'm a vegetarian and everytime I drink protein shakes, eat peanut butter or fruit I get shaky and light headed. What causes that?

I'm a vegetarian and everytime I drink protein shakes, eat peanut butter or fruit I get shaky and light headed. What causes that?

Blood sugar/allergy: This is unusual. If these symptoms occur a couple hours after eating fruit it could be due to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) but that would be unlikely after protein/fats. You may be allergic/sensitive to these foods (or at least one of the ingredients in the shake).If you are allergic to these foods it may be related to imbalances of intestinal flora. I advise seeing a holistic doctor. See comment:.

See details: Possible causes are many. Primary heart issues need to be ruled out. Metabolic causes such as hyperthyroidism should be considered. Nonphysical causes such as anxiety are also in the mix. Start with your primary care doctor.
