Went to ER yesterday with the folowing symptoms:
-struggling to get words out (mouth not saying what my brain knows I want to speak)
-Seeing spots/right peripheral vision went 'black' for about 30 seconds.
-bad neck pain
I woke yesterday with the neck pain. I was standing at work when I felt a rush like I was passing out, I started seeing spots and lost peripheral vision in right eye. After a few minutes, the vision problems were fine, but I felt like I was drunk. I thought I was slurring words, felt confused, dizzy and off balance. The ER doc diagnosed me with vertigo. He did not address the reason I went to the ER, which was the confusion not feeling mentally 'all there'. My wife agrees that I am not myself. Is the doc correct, that it is just vertigo? Are all of these symptoms associated with vertigo? Should I go see someone else.
I still have the neck pain, dizziness, and lack of mental sharpness.
