I have had 2 recent "attacks" of rapid flushing in the face preceded by a stiff neck and pain in the back of the head. This quickly changes to a dizziness/ fainting and I turn a pale colour and sweat perfusely from my face. It is like a constriction of my neck.
I have been in hospital and they said it was 2 attacks of hyperventilation.
They did'nt rule out some kind of migraine , which they gave me ISOPTIN SR 240 mg.
MY own G.P ( before I went to hospital ) said his bet was on Basilar Migraine. He said not to take migraine tablets if it was as this would not be the answer.
I am totally confused. The first 2 "attacks" happened within 6 days of each other...but nothing has happened now in 3 weeks. I still get these cloudy headaches and even though I got a complete clean bill of health from the hospital ( incl., an angiogram)...I am nervous about it happening again. Anyone help??
