:confused: I have been having this occurance for about 6 years now, off and on. It is very hard to describe, but I will try. I get a sudden feeling of profound weakness, starting at my head and traveling down my body. There is a slight tingling, and almost feels like someone poured warm water over my head. I don't pass out, but feel like I am going to. It only last a few minutes, but afterward I am disoriented, and confused, and also lose some memory for a period of hours afterwards. I have a funny feeling in my mouth, that I can't describe. It's not exactly numbness, but feels strange. I may have an episode, and then it may not occur for a year. Then, I may have 4 episodes in one day, and they may reoccure for several days. Then they will go away and not come back for 6 months to a year or so. Usually I am sitting or still when they happen, but recently they have happened standing up, grocery shopping, and even wake me up at night. My doctors are stunned, because they never happen when I am being monitored. Does anyone have any idea what this might be? They are really very hard to describe, but I have done my best.

  • Tyler, have you seen a neurologist yet? Have they done an MRI?
