Something is definitely wrong with me lately. I feel like I am about to pass out, at least a little bit, most of the time. Sometimes the feeling becomes more severe. Thankfully, though, I have not yet passed out from it. But it does have me worried alot.

Just today, I was in my bedroom, and my head was swimming. As I've said, the feeling of passing out can get more severe at times.

The strange thing about it is, I can usually shake the feeling off if it becomes too severe. But this is a little more difficult now. Also, the feeling seems to be brought on by my anxiety that I will be bothered by it. Btw, I do drink alcohol, sometimes a little bit to excess.

FYI, in Summer of 1986, I had a brain eeg which found I had a seizure tendency. Also, I take Zyprexa, which seems to make the problem worse, possibly. I notice most of my problems after I take the Zyprexa. But this might be coincidence, I guess. I may see a doctor for this some day, esp. if it ever becomes more severe. And I would like advice on what to ask the doctor and tell him. But in the meantime, does anyone know what might be wrong with me?

Thank you in advance to all who reply:)

Thank you in advance to all who reply:)It looks to me as an allergic reaction, perhaps to the Zyprexa.

  • Hey I would suggest that you go to a cardiologist and ask for a tilt table test. I felt the same way and had a positive tilt table after visiting many many dr's. Also do you by chance have low blood pressure?
