Yesterday i experienced somthing very frightening. I was standing in the kitchen when i was overcome by a sort of extreme diziness. It was like i was passing out but i could fight for conciousness. i was mostly coherent but my vision was distorted by stars and there was a loud ringing in my ears. Everything sounded far away, even my own voice. i tried to walk to put on my shoes after asking my BF to take me to the hospital but i fell to the floor and began to loose hold of everything. my BF shook me back to conciousness and we began to go to the hospital. It passed before we arrived leaving me sweaty, nausious and off balance, but i didnt feel the need to go in anymore. Has anyone experienced this, and should I be worried?

Has anyone experienced this, and should I be worried?You might be having vertigo poisitonal disorder? Do things in the room spinn around too? Also do your ears feel full? If so this might be it. I experienced this several years ago. I took travel sickness pills then went to my dr and a specialist later.
