Question: dizzy and numbness

 LIMother - Tue Sep 27, 2005 3:55 pm

I am experiencing constant dizziness. At times my hands, feet and lips get tingly. The dizziness occurs soo much that it, at times it makes me sick. I am afraid I am lacking oxygen or ciculation to my brain. Which I've heard can cause serious problems if it persists.
No one can figure out what it is.
Does any one have any suggestions as to what I can do or what it might be...

User avatar Hi LIMother,
First let me ask, have you had any diagnostic studies? Are you a diabetic, have lung problems, or had a recent infection?
