It hits fast and out of nowhere, a sudden intense dizziness and split second black out, like I'd be knocked off my feet if I weren't already off
them. It mostly feels like it comes in from the right, swoops around and goes back out, like a boomerang? quick as can be.
I would be very careful my friend, and get yourself checked out by a neurologist please...for some sort of seizure disorder like epilepsy
those exact same feelings
all my life. In recent years when those strange feelings developed into full blown chain seizures, I was diagnosed
with Idiopathic Epilepsy.
I don't normally like to tell people they might have it, but what you described here, sounds 100% like the seizures
I now experience. The only
difference for me is the feelings coming wooshing up from the back of my skull towards the front, just before I seize and pass out. It sounds like you
might be experiencing what's called a seizure aura
Seizure Aura - Auras vary significantly between different people. Yours may happen right before a seizure or several minutes to hours
earlier. Common warning signs right before seizures are changes in bodily sensations, changes in your ability to interact with things happening
outside you, and changes in how familiar the outside world seems to you. Other warning signs that may happen hours before a seizure are depression,
irritability, sleep disruption, nausea, and headache.
Researchers who have studied different types of auras for many years have found patterns. For many people, the sensations in an aura occur in the same
order. For example, you may always feel fear, then déjà vu (the feeling that you've been there before), then a strange taste in your mouth.
This pattern would point towards the existence of a prominent seizure pathway in your brain.
The part of your brain where your seizures originate (your seizure focus) also may be linked to a specific type of aura because an aura represents the
beginning of a seizure. Since different parts of the brain are responsible for different things, the warning signs you experience will be related to
the functions of the section of brain where the seizure is about to occur. People whose seizures begin in the temporal lobe tend to have certain types
of auras and those whose seizures begin somewhere else often will have different types.
I saw that you have had an mri, but in many cases seizure activity will not show up on an mri unless you are actually having one when your brain is
scanned by the machine. I would honestly guess that you are having seizure auras, followed by peti mal seizures(known as absent seizures because you
simply "black out") focused on the right hemisphere of your brain where these feelings originate.
Its very important that you get yourself checked thoroughly by neurologist....as a precaution. If you have a seizure disorder its much easier to
battle when armed with foreknowledge. I pray to any and all gods that I am wrong, but this is so similar to my own experiences with seizures.
