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 :)
