Has anyone else had this problem please? Docs mystified. I get occasional sensation of rush to head starting form neck area. It often leaves me with a humming in both ears for a short time then goes. Sometimes it is a mild event, sometimes quite strong. Can make feel unsteady for just a second. I have never blacked out. I do not feel dizzy. No spinning room. Happens indoors or out. I tend to feel a bit hot sort of woozy beforehand (not dizzy, able to walk straight etc). Sometimes the events are spaced out over a few hours, sometimes clustered, but after a while they stop and I feel perfectly okay. They started Jan 2010 and have been as infrequent as every two months, but in recent times have got much closer, maybe every 10-221 days now. LOts of tests. ECG, blood pressure 24 hour test, CT scan, ear (labrynth) all normal. Seeing my Doc again in ten days to discuss what else can be tried. Maybe Neurology. Could it be anything to do with depression? I do not feel depressed, and am not in financial trouble but had to give up my job a couple of years ago and now living on savings. I do some voluntary work and keep busy, but could these symptoms be no more than an unconscious feeling I am "useless" now I do not have a "real" job? Anyone had similar symptoms?
