Question: Nausea and dizziness - history of guttate psoriasis

 tiredofbumps - Wed Nov 21, 2007 6:20 pm

I don't know if Im posting in the right area but I figured I'd start here. I am 25, female, I have guttate psoriasis. I am not on any meds. I smoke 1/2 a pack of cigarettes a day. I have 2 kids, a 2 y/o and a 1 y/o.
For the past 3 weeks to a month, Ive been getting really nauseated. Every time I move around a lot I get really dizzy and my stomach starts hurting. I don't know what to do. I'm not pregnant. I don't have an STDs. This is getting pretty annoying though. I am also very tired all the time and extremely stressed out which is causing my psoriasis to flare again. I don't know what to do.
Please help!!!! thank you

User avatar Hi Tiredofbumps,

When dizziness is associated with nausea the question becomes is the dizziness causing the nausea or are the two separate issues.

One possibility for your symptoms is an inner ear infection. You may also have some gastritis (inflammation of the stomach). A viral infection such as mononucleosis can cause similar symptoms as well.

I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation to help determine what is causing these symptoms.

Best wishes.
