Yesterday, I was just sitting on the couch when all of a sudden everything started spinning horizontally. The spinning lasted about 2 minutes. I became very nauseous and hot. I started sweating a lot. In a matter of minutes, it looked like I had just run a few miles. My hands also felt like they were vibrating and were trembling. My mom was with me and she didn't know what to do so she called 911. The paramedics took my vitals. BP was about 142/82. HR was ~80. O2 was 100%. Blood sugar was 77. I have no other medical conditions other than asthma which rarely even presents itself. I am not on any medications. They took me to the ER and in the ambulance I noticed my left shoulder was jerking a little. By the time I was there I was feeling better. The ER doc had me do stuff like touch my nose, walk heel to toe, etc. He said that since I had no recent trauma and am relatively young and healthy, he didn't believe it was any sot of tumor or stroke. He diagnosed it as vertigo. Today I have noticed that my shoulder is still twitching a bit. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated. I know this isn't a substitute for going to a real doctor, but I am just curious. Thanks
