So for the past few days, I'm having this weird feeling and I don't really know how to describe it, making it even more difficult to do research into it.
It's a bit like shaking on the inside. Like that false feeling of falling (some of you might have experienced while in bed), but more slowly, not that suddenly and pretty frequent. Just imagine your body and within it your soul. Then imagine that soul shaking within that body without moving it. Do you guys have any idea what I mean? Can this have something to do with the locomotor system?
I get this feeling now and then - kind of an inner shaking or sinking feeling, even vertigo - and I think it is partly (for me) an inner ear problem and/or ear wax accumulation. I use ear oils (or just olive oil) to help keep my ears clear of the wax.
I also get it when I'm not eating enough carbs, so I always try to watch that.
And... it also happens when I drink too much of certain herbal teas - Lemon Ginger, for example - which is odd because ginger is supposed to be good for vertigo symptoms.
I never thought of over-hydration as being an issue but I'm going to play around with that, take more salts and electrolytes (coconut water being a fav!).
Meniere's disease? It is an inner ear thing with episodes of vertigo, sometimes with low pitched tinnitus.
Spring allergies can cause congestion in the ears and sinuses that can give you slight vertigo.
If this is happening while you fall asleep it is sleep paralysis. Scary, scary, shiz, but physically harmless.
If it is happening when you stand up you likely need some salt stat. Are you stressed out or drinking extra water, you can get into a salt deficiency pretty quickly. Unrefined sea salt is probably best, but if you are feeling really weird any salt will do for now.
If you have been losing weight, everything that was stored in your adipose tissue is now circulating freely through your body, all sorts of fun stuff can come out like hormones, heavy metals, plastic toxins, or even LSD.
Also make sure you are getting enough to eat, lack of calories could make you shaky.
Good luck, this doesn't sound like any fun, I hope you figure it out soon.
what are you eating? How long have you been eating that way? Could be the typical paleo fog some people talk about when they make the change. That's easily treated with a little time or upping food or fat intake. Can you give some more details?
