I just came back from Colorado and am still suffering from altitude sickness. Headaches are sharp, but brief. Vomiting and diarrhea have subsided, but the feeling of floating and shaking are still present.

With altitude sickness I get dizziness, vertigo, rapid heartbeat, and feeling stoned.

Trying to control my anxiety is the best treatment for my altitude sickness.
