Brain & Nervous System Disorders Board Index

[QUOTE=fuz]I have similar "attacks" however without the pins and needles. I feel light headed, a little dizzy and very disoriented, as though I am not in my body if that makes sense, it is the hardest thing to describe. I also feel like I am going to pass out sometimes. My doctor asked if it gets worse when I get up fast, but it doesn't, also it doesn't get worse if I shake my head or turn suddenly. I have been looking lately on the high blood pressure area of this board. There is a condition in which the blood pressure is low and suddenly shoots up becuase the brain and the heart aren't communicating properly, basically the brain is saying that the heart is getting enough blood, but it isn't so there are suddenly influxes of blood pressure. I am still going to the doctor and they can't figure out what it is, but check the area concerning high blood pressure on this web site and see if you can get any help from there.

Good luck![/QUOTE]

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I thought my bp might have something to do with it, but I started checking it several times a day and it is normal.
I went to my Dr. again yesterday and he thought it had something to do with tight muscles in my back and neck. That may be causing my headaches, but I don't think it's causing my lightheadedness and feeling like I'm going to pass out. He put me on a muscle relaxant and told me to come back next week if I don't feel any better. Well, I took it last night and it made my dizziness/lightheadedness even worse.

I'm sorry you're dealing with this, too. Do you have high bp?
Hi my mom has had some of the symptoms you describe here and no doctor has been able to diagnose her so far.

She gets 3 different scenarios of symptoms:
a) Stiffness in her right foot, followed by a burning sensation up to her knee and then high blood pressure
b) Tingling of her right foot, especially her 3 middle toes, in parallel her right hand starts tingling also 3 of her fingers. Then a sensation of weak knees and overall a fainting feeling. Dizziness, her body movements slow down. She feels a very heavy head.
c)As an additional after effect she gets a tingling head in the front or back.
After each of these attacks she feels a bad stomach, burping reflex.
Panic episodes come too after or during these attacks.
She was diagnosed with a hyperthyroid, and is taking some medication for it. But the symptoms do not disappear.

She has had cardio tests and brain scans, nothing came out. Could it be multiple sclerosis? What about epilepsy, or a compressed nerve in her back?
Any other possible conditions?
