What to do if suddenly (and especially regularly) there is dizziness, weakness, nausea? Causes of illness can be different - from pregnancy to stroke. But to ignore such alarming signs is to show levity, which can turn into tragic consequences. How dangerous are these symptoms and should we wait until other signs of the disease appear?
Reason number 1: the stale products and the vagaries of nature
If suddenly there is nausea, dizziness, weakness, pain in the abdomen, the causes are most likely associated with poisoning. Moreover, intoxication can cause not only expired products. You can poison with drugs, chemicals (including household chemicals), alcohol, carbon monoxide.
But such a state (although without painful sensations in the digestive organs) can also be caused by a sharp change in atmospheric pressure. At such times, weather-dependent people often complain that they are nauseated. They feel general malaise, and dizziness often appears.
Reason 2: Chronic Diseases
If a person is tormented for a long time with dizziness, weakness, nausea, the causes may be related to diseases of the kidneys, heart, nervous system and digestive organs. Such symptoms give the following diseases:
- inflammation in the kidneys;
- disorders of the thyroid gland (hypothyroidism);
- problems with heart;
- brain or auditory nerve tumor;
- characteristic symptoms: dizziness, recurrent nausea, and a feeling of weakness (which in medical language are called "triad") - occur with vertigo syndrome. The person seems to be in a whirlpool - all objects begin to rotate around him, which even leads to loss of balance;
- stomach ulcer.
Recurrent bouts of nausea and weakness may indicate that stones have formed in the gallbladder.
A common disease in which such symptoms are also observed is vascular dystonia. Sudden drops or decrease in pressure lead to the appearance of weakness, (up to trembling of the extremities), marked dizziness and nausea, with an urge to vomit.
Reason 3: Infection
If the body "signals" about its illness, such signs as nausea, weakness, dizziness, drowsiness, causes may be associated with an infectious disease. Sometimes intestinal flu starts like this. A similar development of the disease occurs during infection with enterovirus infection.
If a person (especially a child or teenager) has similar symptoms, then you should carefully monitor his condition in order not to miss such a dangerous disease of an infectious nature, like meningitis.
Reason # 4: A pleasant wait.
There is only one circumstance in which malaise is a cause for joy, not for anxiety. At the beginning of pregnancy, signs of conception may appear: nausea, vomiting, dizziness, weakness. The causes of toxicosis lie in the fact that in the woman's body began an active hormonal adjustment. If bouts of nausea and weakness recur no more than 5 times a day, this is considered normal and does not require special treatment.
Menstruation in some women is also accompanied by nausea, dizziness and bouts of weakness. Such sensations provokes a bioactive substance - serotonin, which during menstruation the body produces in increased quantities.
Reason number 5: other options
If there is dizziness, nausea, weakness, the reasons for women are associated with emotional over-stimulation. Fear, strong feelings, depression contribute to the development of adrenaline, and the case may even end in vomiting.
The desire to lose weight quickly also sometimes leads to these three unpleasant symptoms. So the body warns about the deficiency of nutrients, which was formed as a result of an unbalanced diet.
If a person suddenly felt dizzy, weak, nauseous, the reasons, unfortunately, are not so harmless. 3 of these symptoms in combination with sweating may be harbingers of a serious and life-threatening disease - stroke.
How to be treated at home and when to call an ambulance?
If the alarming symptoms appear for the first time and there is a suspicion of poisoning, then the stomach should be flushed. To do this, it is enough to drink a large amount of water with manganese dissolved in it. Then doctors advise taking activated carbon - at the rate of 1 tablet for every 10 kg of weight. For removing toxins and restoring the digestive organs, you can drink Regidron, Atoksil, Smektu.
It is possible to get rid of nausea, not associated with diseases, with the help of folk remedies. Good helps green and mint tea. Grandmothers share their secret: you can chew a coffee seed.
In case of nausea and weakness caused by stomach problems, folk healers recommend drinking fresh potato juice in the morning on an empty stomach (½ tbsp).
If dizziness and nausea torment a pregnant woman, then she should limit the consumption of sugary drinks, do not overeat, eat often, but in small portions.
Proper lifestyle (adequate sleep, balanced and regular diet, physical activity and the development of stress tolerance) is the best prevention of dysfunctions in the body.
In some cases, when nausea, severe weakness and dizziness appear, medical help should be sought immediately. If this "trinity" of symptoms joins with loss of consciousness, decreased vision, the person’s speech becomes incoherent, he loses coordination, then you need to quickly call an ambulance.
If these symptoms appear, then you should not follow the well-known proverb "Until the thunder clap ...". It is necessary to establish the cause of the illness as soon as possible. Even a banal poisoning can face serious complications, not to mention more serious diseases. And only with the permission of the doctor can you complement the traditional treatment of traditional methods.
