Head pulsating/dizziness/nausea!

Every now and then I get this horrible feeling of dizziness/lightheadedness with a feeling like my head is going to explode. No pain, just a horrible feeling, and it pulsates from my neck upwards. I also feel really sick when this happens. It happens every few days or so and when it comes on it can last a whole day. I was out this afternoon and thought I was going to pass out in the supermarket.

I recently had full bloodworks taken and found that my blood sugars were 6.4, so the doctor decided to a fasting blood test, I get the results tomorrow.

I have mentioned this dizziness to the doctor and this is why he is carrying out this test.

I also feel slightly breathless, like I have to take a deep breath, as if not enough oxygen in my body if that makes any sense.

Any ideas as to what is going on?

Much appreciated.

  • Some more additional information which may help....I did try to edit my post but it wouldn't let me. I suffer from Tinnitus and the ringing seems heightened when I am having one of these spells.After experiencing this I feel exhausted....like I could fall asleep on the spot.To be honest I have been back and forth to the doctor for the past year....I recently discovered that the contraception Implanon has been causing me a lot of previously undiagnosed problems which are no longer present since having it removed a month ago but these dizzy spells/head pulsating is still there. I used to have a similar experience when I was pregnant with my last child but this was over 7 years ago. It lasted on and off for the duration of my pregnancy, I would get these sudden attacks, I particularly remember feeling sick,, feeling really weak and tired afterwards.I am definitely NOT pregnant!

  • Hi - i just joined this group out of desperation. I have the same symptoms. Brain pressure, foggy minded, breathing stopping, and then I have a yawning attack after the episode. I know your post is old but I am just reaching out to see if you ever got a resolution to this horrible condition. Thanks.
