Back when I first started to really feel ill, something similar happened to me. I was sitting there when suddenly, I got total tunnel vision. My view
shrunk to only what was directly in front of me and seemed to get small and far away. I could hear everything going on around me, but it was muffled
and strange sounding. I could move my hands/fingers but that was about as far as it went. Fuzzy and heavy is what I remember of the sensation during
After it was over, I did some searching and it seemed at the time that it may have been sleep paralysis. It fit, but seemed odd in that I was totally
awake just before this happened. I was very stressed and not feeling well and getting very little sleep, so I suppose it was possible I dropped off
into a snooze.
Later on however, I started to experience bouts of dizzyness. When they happened, my vision swam in and out and became far away appearing. I could
see people around me, just that everything had an odd quality to it. Also, I'd have to stop right where I was or risk falling. (I did fall twice and
broke both ankles. Still really panicked about falling while going down steps to this day.) I now think the first episode was a dizzy spell as well in
hindsight, but who knows.
My dizzy spells were due to extreme anemia which restricted oxygen carrying capacity. Low oxygen to the brain = dizzyness/passing out.
Sounds like your kiddo is healthy though, not an old wreck like me, heh.
Really up to you, but maybe a doc visit just in case? Often, doctors don't look at certain things if they don't have the cues to know what to look
for. May be nothing at all, but could be something at that.
