My Crazy Story
Apr 21, 2010
Hi, I am now to this site and I would like to share my story with you guys and hopefully find some answers to my problems :). This whole thing started on the 19th March 2010 (Thursday). I went to work as usual, after a hard day's work I came home and started watching TV with a glass of red wine (I am a social drinker but can go overboard sometimes). While watching a movie or two I had finished a bottle of wine, which is my limit.

While sitting on the sofa I felt my left arm is feeling numb and also a little weird (tingly / pins and needles line sensation), I didn't think of it much. After going to bed I couldn't sleep as the numbness feeling was weird and restless, I started reading on the internet as to what can cause numbness / pins n needles in left arm. Internet can be your best friend or your worst nightmare as the first website I visited mentioned “tingly-ness / numbness on left arm means you are about to or are having a heart attack”, WOW!! alarm bells ringing in my ears (don't trust everything you read on the internet).

The next day I woke up and went to work as usual and still had the tingling / numbness in my arms, it started worrying me and at about 2-3pm I drove to the emergency with my partner. I was very surprised and disappointed that you have to wait 40-50 minutes in an emergency clinic and I told the front desk that I think I might be having an heart attack and he blinked and said please fill out the forms. While we were in the emergency, I started feeling trembling, my hands started to sweat and for a minute I knew something was coming as in an Attack, I suddenly stood up and and had two attacks within 10-15 seconds where I went dizzy and disoriented. I requested to see the doc or the nurse. At that time I was feeling the following symptoms:

[LIST]
[*]My hands were sweaty (mainly left)
[*]Trembling
[*]Feeling really cold
[*]Dizzy (when I moved my head)
[*]Red eyes
[*]My hands were really cold
[*]The vision in me left eye was weak
[*]Blurry vision
[/LIST]

The doctor checked my reflex's in both arms, legs, fingers and had ECG done which came out negative. All blood results came out negative as well, from the medical prospective I am healthy although I am overweight. After coming home It felt like I am having an attack every night, during the day it's not that bad.

After that I never had an attach like the one in the emergency but I feel dizzy for a 1-2 seconds and that's it and this could happen during day or at night. I feel like I will have an attack when I close my eyes and then I have to open my eyes to disregard it.

I woke up at night and couldn't sleep and woke up at 4am and started trembling and feeling cold, I felt another attack is coming, so I had the medicine, which calmed me down.

Since then I have been having dizzy-ness here and there but nothing that great and started feeling better as I wasn't drinking and started exercising.

I had few friends come over for dinner and I had 3 beers and went to Indian restaurant for dinner, the food was amazing. At the restaurant I had a little dizzy spell when I got home I was tired and feeling like the attack might be on it's way the following symptoms were:
[LIST]
[*]feel like throwing up
[*]dizzy-ness
[*]red eyes
[*]feeling cold
[*]Blurry Vision
[/LIST]

at 2-3am I decided to take the medicine and at about 4am I fell asleep.

Facts:

[LIST]
[*]My eyesight was perfect but after the attack, I am seeing blurry
[*]My head feels heavy all the time
[*]At night when I close my eyes I feel dizzy and will have an attack soon
[*]Belching a lot due to gas build-ups
[*]restless left leg
[/LIST]

Could this be related to a problem in your body? I am not stressed to the extent of getting Panic attacks... what's going on?? The doctor I went to mentioned it's panic due to over stressed which I don't get.

Hope I didn't bore you guys. Your comments are welcome...

God Bless
