Hello, I have occasional periods when I start to feel woozy and a bit warm, and after a while I get a rush to the head, staring from my neck. It is over in a second or two, sometimes leaving me with buzzing in both ears for a minute or two afterwards. I do NOT feel the room spinning or get dizzy in the usual sense. Just feel woozy - not quite right - for a couple of hours. Can get dryness in the mouth too around this time. The head rush sometimes happens only once, other times could be several. I get these feelings every two-three weeks. Doc has done 24 hour heart monitor, 24 hour BP monitor, Brain scan, sent me to inner ear consultant. All drawn a blank. I have kept a diary and noticed that these events seem to take place the day after I have had some extra glasses of wine. I have been drinking wine for maybe 15 years. White wine mainly. I do not wake up with a headache or classic overhang symptoms, and usually the head rush thing does not happen until between mid morning and mid afternoon. Could this be an effect of something in the wine and dehydration?

  • Last night got very hot eating dinner. Only had one small glass of white wine with dinner and have been rationing myself this week. Then went into very hot theatre and got very hot again. Walked home, cooled down. Had one small glass white wine. Then got very hot again and sweating at home, although house not hot. Had some palpitations. Took BP and temp and within bounds, allowing for the anxiety of the moment. Took a while to cool down and then go to sleep. This morning had two further "head rushes" Still feeling warm now after an hour or so.

  • brucergoldberg@gmail.com sounds like you have thyroid disease. Have your thyroid checked. Tell your doctor to check your TSH as well as your tpo and tgab antiboides. Sounds like hashimotos thyroiditits. Have this checked out before you start driving around to any more doctors.Hello, I have occasional periods when I start to feel woozy and a bit warm, and after a while I get a rush to the head, staring from my neck.
