Ths strange feeling has happened 4 times in the last 14 days. I have not felt it previously. It happened to me twice shortly after arriving to work. Once while I was making breakfast and the most recent while I was sitting on the couch. At first, I thought it was maybe because I needed to eat. Well, today it happened after breakfast. Seems to rule that theory out.
What is happening: I suddenly start to feal like I am going to pass out, I immediately sit down since I will be falling further if I am standing. As I am sitting there, I start to have memories, or visions. I am not sure what it is. I am also thinking- "Is this real or fake? What is this?" I have these memories/visions up 'til I stop feeling like strange in my head. As soon as all of the strange feeling goes away, I can't remember anything that was in my head. I can only remember wondering what it was. It is only lasting for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

I have been to the doctor and they came up with nothing. My blood came back normal, my blood pressure and heart beat are fine. All of my reflexes are normal. I do have an appointment with a neurologist, but that isn't for another 2 weeks. I would love to have some kind of a clue.

Everything happens in the morning. On 1/22 it was shortly after arriving to work. On 1/28- I was cooking breakfast. On 1/29- shortly after arriving to work. I thought it went away because it didn't happen again 'til 2/4.

Another thing is my body temperature seems to rise. I have not taken a temperature, but I start to get really hot. If I am wearing a seeater, I have to take it off instantly. When someone sees me while it is happening, they say that my face turns very pink in the cheeks and nose.

I hope someone can help

  • I would think you need to see a specialist to rule out seizures and brain tumors as the worst case scenario...look into diet, allergies, carbon monoxide, poisons...

  • I wish I could explain the things in my head. As soon as I am feeling back to normal, I can't really remember anything that was there. I can only remember trying to figure out what the heck is in my head. Real memories or not? As wierd as they seem, I am thinking that I am seeing something that I have never done, been through etc.It could be a seizure of one kind or another. Can you describe the experiences, visions, memories etc in more detail?
