Over the past several months I have experienced sudden onset of extreme dizziness, heavy limbs, can't hold/grip anything, and slurred speech. It usually only lasts about 5-10 mins and then stops as suddenly as it began.
Two weeks ago it happened, but was much worse. I was totally unresponsive, but could hear everything that everyone was saying. My husband says I was like a rag doll. I had no muscle control at all. After about 15-20 mins I could finally respond a little. I thought I was speaking clearly, but they said my speech was very slurred. I couldn't stand for about an hour and that was only with the help of my 2 teenage daughters. I tried to hold a cup to drink, but couldn't. It took about 2 hours before I was even close to "normal" again, but was very drained.
I am very concerned because I would have been driving when it happened if my son had been ready when he was supposed to. There are no triggers that I can identify that cause it. The last time it happened before this I was sitting on the bed folding laundry. My vital signs are always nml, blood glucose nml, insulin level nml. I had a CT scan at the ER, which was nml.
I am at my wits end. Please tell me any suggestions you may have.
