My mother in law has had these episode for about 5-6 years now and need some help in what it could possibly be. She notices that they start when she had eaten a lot of sweet foods. She gets umbalanced, has vertigo, nausea, vomiting, excessive urination and her blood pressure is very high. She has been on blood pressure medication for years, but it doesn't seem to help when she is going through an episode. The symptoms are very bad the first day and then taper off slowly. By day 4 she feels normal again. But mainly she remains off balance the days following an episode.
She never wants to go to the ER when she is in an episode and I am very concerned for her. I have even gotten a call from a coworker of hers and they are all concerned for her as well. It's time we need to do something about this, but I don't want to scare her away from medical procedures.
If anyone has an indication of what it could be, please feel free to share!
