since the 3rd December I have had a small right pupil. and burning running water feelings inside my head all over.

on the day of onset i was driving home with my children happily singing away when my right side of face went numb and tingly and I felt dizzy and light headed. My 13yr old son held the car wheel until I came round and stopped the car. SCARY!!!

i went to the GP who referred me to a neurologist and she said it could be a migraine. but to be sure she would send me for an MRI to rule out lesions etc.

thats not for another week or so. over the last 5 weeks I have been getting increasing burning sensation and light headedness. feel strange most of the time. some tingling down my arms and chest too.

for the last week I feel like a heavy object has been placed on my forehead too.
I have a feeling of vulnerability which is not like me.

I suffered what I think was a Gallbladder attack on the 30th December so have been feeling a little nausious to be honest. I have had gallstones for a couple of years now, so i don't think its connected and wouldn't cause my right pupil to go small.

does anyone have any idea's. I have searched the threads and can't find all my symptoms and what i did find worried me. neorologist didn't think it was Horners. but what is it.

I am going on holiday for 5 days with my children on my own on Monday and want to put my mind at ease if you know what I mean..

look forward to hearing from you

  • well I went on holiday and on the first night ended up with a paremedic and ambulance crew. it seemed relaxing wasn't meant to be as all the time on my hands made me worry and I had a major panic attack. couldn't breathe and passed out. took 3 hours to get a decent heart rate. :( Had my MRI this morning. just got to wait a week or so for the results now. In the mean time my chest feels heavy and I feel like i have a boulder in my stomach. Im hoping this is anxiety and I keep having to remind myself to breath deeply. Im still being woken by head pressure and strange sensations including breathing. not knowing anything is a real curse..... I feel like a wreck all of the time. I am truly at my wits end
