I don't know what is wrong with me. Recently I have started feeling light headed/dizzy fairly often and I also get a weird pain in my arm/wrist. It feels like someone is pinching it. Sometimes the pain will last for hours, it is not strong, but it is a bit annoying.
Also, I do not smoke, drink or do drugs, I am not really athletic, I get a decent amount of sleep and I do not have a real medical history.
According to your age (19) and the seemingly unrelated symptoms (âlight headed/dizzy fairly oftenâ and âweird pain in the arm/wristâ) you could be experiencing anything, including anxiety. You can visit an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist for the dizziness and a rheumatologist to check the arm. If everything is OK, you may be experiencing anxiety and you will need a diagnosis from a mental health doctor for treatment of the symtpoms.
