Feeling Faint, Nausea Or Vomiting And Shaking

Reviewed on 6/15/2020

Someone can have shaking or tremor of their hands or head for a number of reasons, including Parkinson's disease. But when the shaking comes on suddenly with dizziness and nausea or vomiting, it is typically something more like the flu or other virus or food poisoning. If you have been out in the sun, it could be heatstroke. If you are a diabetic, it could mean that your blood sugar is too low.
