How do I know whether to see a doctor?

Over the last few week, every couple of weeks or so I will feel woozy, dizzy, nausea, shaky....I dont know like I have the flu. I will run a low grade fever..99.5-100. My husband is starting to worry and says I need to document. I am just not feeling well at all. I thought eating would help, and it didnt, tylenol does well for fever but nothing else. I have foggy brain. Also, 2 weeks ago while sitting at my desk working Im sure it had to be anxiety I started to feel like my heart was racing and I couldnt get enough air even if I took huge breaths. what could be going on.... Im over feeling like Im sick all the time.

Hi.  Well, you sound uncomfortable and since this has been going on for a while, ya, I'd go ahead and see your doctor.  Nothing comes directly to mind though from your description.  The fever is slightly, just very slightly, elevated.  Maybe you are fighting off a virus.  Fever is often an immune response and is the bodies natural way of fighting infections or viruses.  They don't feel great but they are actually serving the purpose.  That you also get dizzy and had the episode that involved shortness of breath and some chest discomfort, I think I'd get checked out.  What might be helpful information is if you do keep a little chart of what happens and when.  You can look for patterns or triggers that way. And it would be useful info for your doctor.  Do you have anxiety by the way?  That also can make things worse and we can have physical symptoms when we have that.
