When was your last physical?

Were any investigations done for these symptoms?

Do you think these symptoms happened when you suddenly changed your posture (like sudden getting up)?

Do you smoke, drink alcohol regularly?

Do you exercise regularly?

Ok,

are we done?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 11 months ago

A B 12 deficiency is one of the commonest cause for these symptoms. So a blood work for it would be advised to assess the cause. You would need supplements for it as well as calcium and vitamin D.

This is unlikely to be due to anything life threatening but still your blood pressure, pulse and routine investigations should be done for assessing the overall well being.

I do have low to normal blood pressure but just had that checked a few weeks ago
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 11 months ago

A change in the blood pressure reading due to posture may be done. So doctor may see your blood pressure in lying, sitting and standing position. If change is more than 10, that may cause these symptoms.

You may need some medications.

Important is to keep yourself properly hydrated meanwhile.

Thanks, it's just the strangest sensation and couldn't find any marching symptoms online.
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 11 months ago

You are very welcome.

These symptoms are annoying, I can understand.

But these are not likely to be due to anything serious.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
