I usually ride around 5 miles a day on my bicycle.
It relaxes me and keeps my calves looking like Popeye's forearms.
Helps negate the negative effects of tobacco and alcohol.
I was riding earlier today. Weather was gorgeous.
I suddenly had my head shoved forward. Like someone with a soft, spongy glove whacked me.
Everything was a blank for a second. I caught my snap before I wiped out.
Then I saw a blurry, black, horizontal streak descend through my field of vision.
I had shaky hands and rubbery legs for a few minutes.
It was not the kind of thing I want to experience again.

Please see your Dr. get an MRI to check for a minor stroke.

Best of luck and Blessings to you.

Maybe a bird flew into you?

Or that. Not sure strokes do that but I'm no doctor.

Blood sugar? Did you forget to eat or take too much blood thinners?

I don't go to a doctor unless I cant staunch the bleeding or a bone is sticking out.
Can't afford them.
I do appreciate your Blessings.

My first thought.
Vigorous excercise after a night of beer drinking and then going at it with no breakfast.
It was a really funky feeling.
I ate a big fruit-salad with hog-jowls when I got home.
I was back in fighting-form within less than an hour.

I'm pretty sure that wasn't it, but I can't discount the possibility.

it sounds like something hit the back of your head, a bird? maybe, or maybe someone shot you with a BB gun?

I was sitting outside once right after sunset and something smack me in the side of the head hard,and I felt this fluttering foam rubbery feeling like you mentioned.i never found out what it was but I suspect it was a bat attacking misquetoes that were trying to eat me alive.bats come out in the evening and they don`t mind crashing into you if they can get get something to eat in the deal.

Hey Skunk? Go to Dr. or Urgent care. You absolutely could have had a small stroke... and kept on riding.. and you're a smoker.

Please. Don't blow this off.. Please, again.

I couldn't agree with MS more!
My children's father had a stroke at the age of 45 just last December. It must have happened that morning and he didn't come home/to find me to ask what to do until early afternoon. It turned out to be fairly serious really with some lasting effects today.
Perhaps the ER would bill you if you went there.
I don't think you should take it lightly, it could be very serious.
Please consider it!

Go riding again at the same place. Many birds are territorial, if it was a bird they may swoop down from behind again, and again. Or you can sit and watch to see if other passersby get 'swooped'.

I agree with this member,OP.It's a disgrace how expensive med care seems to be in America.Even in the banana republic where i live there are state hospitals that charge about 20-30 bucks only for a consultation with a doctor,followed by any and all specialised procedures,surgeries,medication and treatments included in that fee.And free clinics in every city and town,for free birth control and consultations with a RN for ailments of mothers and their children up to 6yo.But try to see a doc,just in case it was a kind of mild stroke.

This makes me remember though,also,of a swallow zipping past my head with barely and inch to spare,when i was about 5yo.Jeez had it hit me at that speed it would have been Broken,and i would have had a major headache,if not worse.I just saw this black blur whooshing at massive speed right past my face,it was a shock,then i saw it was a swallow that almost used the back of my head to commit suicide.

Sounds like something hit you ...but...since you were dehydrated from drinking and no food, you were unable to regroup your body functions....if it happens again, I'd see a doc....but for now...hydrate . Do you have a lump in your neck ?

Sounds like a mild stroke to me. It might be a low sugar event too, but the symptoms do not match that well for sugar.

I think you should see a doctor about that, or at least start eating a little more onions or other specific sulfur foods to keep your blood flowing smooth. A baby aspirin also keeps the platelets from sticking together, some veggies do the same thing as aspirin because they contain natural Salicylates.

I still think a doctor visit is needed.

That's cool but potentially terrifying. What if they get the taste for Your blood?

I appreciate the concern.
I'm ticking along like a champ today.
I'm just going to say I got hit by a Nerf-bird travelling at near light-speed.
