Lightheaded/dizzy, fatigue and speech issues.

So for a while now I have been getting really lightheaded or dizzy. Now along with this comes fatigue and speech issues. I start doing really deep yawns and I am unable to form words in my mouth (if that makes since). I have to really concentrate just to be able to make simple sentences and even those are great. Another symptom I am experiencing is weakness or loss of balance/ coordination in my legs and arms. These symptoms come and go but lately the have been every day and they can last for 30 min or a couple hours. Then it won't happen for the rest of the day. I was trying to do some research on what has been going on and these symptoms seem to fall under many things. Right now I will be taking some b12 vitamins to see if that helps as well as drinking a lot more water. If anyone has any ideas it all heap or if anyone experiences the same things please let me know.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms could be due to vitamin B12 deficiency,somatization disorder or sleep disorder.
I would suggest you to have serum vitamin B12 level and sleep studies to dig out the cause.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
