One important possibility that needs to be evaluated is hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are fatigue,depression,weight gain,cold intolerance,dry, coarse hair and skin,constipation,muscle cramps,decreased concentration,vague aches and pains,menstrual disorders,palpitation,cold intolerance and swelling of the legs.
I feel that you should consult a physician and get yourself and your thyroid hormone levels evaluated.
I hope that helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
HI, Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. They did check my thyroid and the test came back good. Sorry, I forgot to mention it in the above comment. I also forgot to mention that I get short of breath when I had these dizzy spells and get a wet cough with it. Afterwards both go away. I had a pulmonary test done too and it said there was a little shortness of breath but I am an ex smoker of 20+ years.I quit smoking 5 years ago. Don't know if it would help to mention, I am a 46 year old female. 5'8" and weigh 130. Prior to these spells I've had for past 3 months I would get light headed for a second or two and that was it. It would happen maybe once a month or less but nothing like it is now and I never had all the other symptoms. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
