Dear Dr., It's been already two weeks that I've been experiencing this strange dizziness... It started together with a chest pressure/mild pain. A blood test showed high blood cell and platelet counts, and ketones. I was on a diet at the moment so I droppped it. Two days later the chest pressure was still there, so I got put under observation at the hospital for 6 days. They did all sort of tests to try to find if I had a heart issue (ultrasound, ergometry, even a coronary catheterization), but all came negative. During the week at the hospital the chest pain disappeared and after I got discharged everything seemed ok again. But the dizziness returned after a couple of days. It's a very light dizziness. I do not loose my balance and I can work just fine, but it's always there. Sometimes I will get a headache or some pressure behind my eyes. After eating I feel slightly nauseous and full for a while, even if I do not eat much, and after a couple of hours the nausea is gone, but the dizziness is still there. Sometimes I feel a bit shaky and kind of tired. Any recommendation? Obviously I made the mistake to Google things and now I am scared that could be a brain tumor or something like that. Any information would be very muchappreciated. Many thanks in advance. MF

Hi there

The symptoms that you are experiencing could indicate various things and yes, Dr Google is the worst place to look :-) because, as you said, then you have a brain tumour. What you are experiencing could be symptoms of anxiety (are you going through a stressful time at the moment?) or it could be an indication of a hormone imbalance, such as thyroid over or under activity, or it could be an indication of a neurological problem (brain, but not necessarily brain tumour). If I were you, I would go to the doctor for a check-up, just to be safe. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
