I am a 36 yo male. Since 1.5months ago I started experiencing dizziness on an almost daily basis. The feeling is akin to 'floating', like I'm on a boat out on a choppy sea. Accompanying this is a pins and needles sensation on both my arms, and down my left leg, and sometimes this feels like there's lack of blood circulation in my limps or even the feeling of a rush of blood through my arms and left leg. On bad days, the pins and needles could radiate to my chest area and make me feel as if I'm having a panic attack or heart attack. I have visited the ER twice already when I couldn't managed the symptoms. They did an ECG, chest xray and blood tests on me - ruled out heart attacks and major lung infections. I've been referred to a cardiologist and neurologist for further investigation, but would need to put up with these symptoms daily which is affecting my life, while I wait to see the specialists. Throughout this period, I'm also continuing to have flu symptoms, such as feeling feverish and chills, and a slight sore throat.
Before these symptoms started, I had a bout of virus infection with slight fever and sore throat. And I wonder if what I'm experiencing now is a result of that virus still lingering in me and my blood stream. I also have slipped discs on my neck at C6-7 and C5-7. I have already saw my spine doctor who said while my symptoms MIGHT be caused by further deterioration of the discs' condition, its better if I saw a neurologist first.
Does anyone have the same experience, or any insights to what I'm experiencing?
