this might be a double post, sorry if it is:
Hi, I am a 26 year old female, this was a little while back I was reading off a computer screen and noticed I was having trouble making out the letters, I went into the bathroom and looked at my eyes, as I did my pupils completely dialated and I became dizzy and lost vision after about 10 second crawling around my vision came back, I got up but could but could barely walk, I got to my bed and tried to stand but became dizzy got tunnel vision and collasped, It seemed as if I was about to die but instead I just passed out for about 12 hours and woke up feeling like crap, maybe I had a stroke? p.s. no drugs.
