Last wednesday i saw a flash of light in my head, i suddenly couldnt catch my breath for a few seconds and then my head went super tight and i felt like i was going to pass out, since then i keep feeling dizzy spells, i have an appointment today but dont have much faith in the doctor so was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem before and knew the cause?
Thanks alot :)

  • You needed to go to the ER; if you get medical care immediately following a stroke, your chances of recovery are higher.

  • It sounds like you had a migraine aura followed by a headache.Was the pain throbbing?If so,tat's what it was.
