Cold tingly sensations in chest hands and feet

For the past week or so I’ve been having funny dizzy spells when I bend over and also palpitations, cold tingly sensations in my chest, hands and feet, and a foggy head and pain behind my nose and under my eyes and popping ears, any ideas?

Hello~I am sorry you are having these uncomfortable issues.

It sounds to me like you could have POTS-Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a condition that affects circulation (blood flow). POTS is a form of orthostatic intolerance, the development of symptoms that come on when standing up from a reclining position, and that may be relieved by sitting or lying back down. The primary symptom of an orthostatic intolerance is lightheadedness, fainting, and an uncomfortable, rapid increase in heartbeat.

POTS symptoms can be uncomfortable and frightening experiences. Patients with POTS usually suffer from two or more of the many symptoms listed below. Not all patients with POTS will have all these symptoms.
•High/low blood pressure
•High/low heart rate; racing heart rate
•Chest pain
•Dizziness/lightheadedness especially in standing up, prolonged standing in one position, or long walks
•Fainting or near-fainting
•Abdominal pain and bloating, nausea
•Temperature deregulation (hot or cold)
•Nervous, jittery feeling
•Forgetfulness and trouble focusing (brain fog)
•Blurred vision
•Headaches and body pain/aches (may feel flu-like); neck pain
•Insomnia and frequent awakenings from sleep, chest pain and racing heart rate during sleep, excessive sweating
•Shakiness/tremors especially with adrenaline surges
•Discoloration of feet and hands
•Exercise intolerance
•Excessive or lack of sweating
•Diarrhea and/or constipation

I would make an appointment with your GP and discuss this with him/her.

I hope you feel better soon.
Oh my goodness that sounds so accurate reading all of that. I think I need to speak to my gp, thank you
You are so very welcome, I hope you can get some help.

Hey i think Ive had this before and i know what it is - first of all if you have a virus that gets into your ear canal you can get some symptoms like this because it messes with your balance. Similarly if you have a small infection in the ear you might not feel any other symptoms to do with ear infection - some people skip the pain in the ear or the cold/flu like symptoms. Try sitting still and suddenly turning your head sharply to the right - if it takes a long time for the room to stop spinning then this could be the issue. The pain behind your nose and under your eyes could possibly be a bad sinus infection also, which can leak into your ears or vice versa - it could be an ear infection leaking into the sinuses.
