I'm 23 years old, female, and in overall good physical shape - weight, bp, muscle tone all fine. As of right this moment, I am not pregnant.
A week and a half ago, I woke up feeling like crap, and for two days, I was dizzy, disoriented, absent-minded, tired, and I noticed a slight tremor in my left hand. Sometimes my hands and arms feel sort of numb. I felt a little bit less dizzy and tired after the two days, but the tremor has gotten worse and now includes both hands, and my forearms to a lesser extent. Its not so bad I can't type, but fine motor activities are harder. I still feel light-headed and weak, especially when I'm sitting still. Walking around doing things seems to improve the problem. I don't feel like myself at all, it's hard to pay attention during conversations and the hand tremor is terrifying. I've been trying to drink enough water and eat well, stay off caffeine. It doesn't seem to make a difference.
For full disclosure, I abused laxatives for nearly 6 years, and just recently stopped. I haven't been to see a physician yet. How worried should I be? Anyone experience similar issues and have advice?
