Hi there. I am a 28 year old female and I have been having some problems of which I don't know what they are and why I have them
It has happened about 10 times now. I had a particularly bad episode on Saturday night, not been that bad since I was 12.
I go exceedingly dizzy and feel quite faint. I then start to get blurry vision and all I can hear is what sounds like running water in my ears. I then lose all ability to hold myself up, I collapse on the floor and I can't hold myself up on my arms or legs. I try to get somewhere to lie down but I generally can't make it. I have fallen into a hedge in my mum's front garden before with these symptoms. I also become incontinent (which at 28 is embarrassing) and I can't call for help. I become bathed in sweat and go as white as a sheet. It does pass eventually but I can do nothing about it when it happens. I am prone to the feeling of numbness in my legs, like I can't walk or they feel heavy and tired.
It is starting to affect my work. At first I thought it was the medication I am on for my disorganised schizophrenia but having seen the doctor he says it's not a side effect, plus I was having these attacks many years before I was placed on this medication
My doctor is not very helpful and it is starting to worry me. It's terrifying when it happens.
Any suggestions would be grateful. I can then take them to the doctor and ask if they are the problem. He is the sort of GP who, if it can't be fixed with a weeks antibiotics he doesn't want to know.
Thanks peeps xxxxx
