I'm a European in living in the Philippines. Four (4) days ago, all of a sudden I felt dizzy in my head but just a very short time (2 seconds) and it went away. An hour after that, my left arm felt numb (I could move it, but I couldn't lift up a glass of water). Shortly after that my lip started moving and I couldn't make it stop (for about 5 seconds). A few minutes after that my brain just stopped working and my head just collapsed like if I was going to sleep but only for about three (3) seconds. I was sitting on a chair so I didn't fall down but i'm sure if this would have happened while I was standing or walking I would have probably fell on the floor. Since then, sometimes I feel dizzy and my left arm become numb, I also feel tintlings inside my brain. I drink beers and aclohol for a while but i'm sure that's not the problem. What is this? Doctors don't know, they just ask me if I drink alcohol and they say: oh THATS WHY.... But i'm sure that's not it.... Couldn't be.... It's too abvious for me that it isn't because of the alcohol.
