What type of doctor would I see for dizziness and shaking?
You will likely first see your primary care physician to see if these symptoms may be related to an endocrinologic problem such as diabetes or thyroid disorder, or potentially cardiac in origin such as an arrhythmia like atrial fibrillation. If there is a sense of the room spinning or rotational movement, this is called vertigo which can be better evaluated by a neurologist.

What is trigonitis?
Despite its name indicative of inflammation, trigonitis is a metaplastic process. The exact primary cause is not known, however, squamous metaplasia in the bladder usually occurs in response to an irritative (prolonged indwelling catheter placement) or infectious process. The occurrence of trigonitis varies according to many reports. Non-keratinizing squamous metaplasia of the bladder neck and trigone can be seen in 50-70% of premenopausal women and is considered a normal variant. Trigonitis, or non-keratinizing squamous metaplasia, is considered nonthreatening and without malignant prospective.
Nevertheless, it must be distinguished from keratinizing squamous metaplasia, also known as leukoplakia. Leukoplakia is thought to be a reaction of the normal urothelium to harmful stimuli and is commonly considered a premalignant lesion that may develop to squamous cell carcinoma in 20% of patients. Squamous metaplasia of the trigone is nearly absent in children and it appears virtually exclusively in women of reproductive age.
