I have felt shakey inside and like I want to cry plus I am very, very sleepy. This began when I got up this morning. I've eaten and napped but still feel that way. What could cause this.
Hello
A thyroid problem.
Anemia could do this.
Low blood sugar.
Psychological problem, depression, etc....
Other imbalance with hormones.
Electrolyte imbalance.
A heart problem might do it.


This is new for you and needs an examination and blood tests/ekg at this point.

OK you have me concerned because in 2008 I had two stents put in my heart because of blocked arteries. Subsequent testing has showed no further blockages and no heart damage... or minimal if any. Would this shakiness be of particular concern then for heart issues?


 

It would be less likely but possible.
I suggest you err on the side of safety and go to the ER for an exam, EKG and blood tests.
