Dizziness with movement, nausea & heart racing,

My mom is 42, she is healthy and non smoking, non drinking... but recently she has been stressing, and has not been getting enough sleep or rest overall. She now gets dizzy and is often nauseous, unsteady and with a racing heart, also sometimes she feels her ears are plugged and hurting, and even numb hands and forearms. Her appetite is not very good. I suggested some ice cream...

What can we do to help her? and is this caused by lack of sleep and anxiety, or are there other serious causes as well, is this a foresign of heart attack? and what should we be careful about? Do we need any medication?

Thank you so much!

Have her see a doctor.  I had a friend who experienced similar symptoms this past year at 37 years old.  She finally fainted and was brought to the ER.  She has a heart condition.  Now on meds and rest.  Have your mother seen.

Sounds like a panic attack...I'm 38 and  I've had these for years.. Not Fun!!! I chose not to take beta blockers or medication for anxiety but those are options too. I hope all is well.
