About two weeks ago I was driving to work and started feeling a little dizzy. I figured I was just tired but then the dizzy episodes got worse, to the point where I began feeling faint about a week later. Even while sitting down at work I felt like I was going to black out. I asked my bos to drive me to the hospital finally.

The ER doctor said that I had labrynthitis and gave me Meclazine. They had done a Ct scan and checked my blood for diabetes. The blood work checked out negative and they did not detect anything in the CT scan. The dizziness and feelings of faintness remained with me, but slowly subsided. A week after returning to work I felt just okay. No more feeling like I was goning to faint, but then I noticed that I had developed shortness of breath that it would come and go.

Also, I noticed that my left arm would get slightly "tingly". You know that feeling you get when you lay on your arm for an extended period of time. The only problem was that my arm would be at my side. Sometimes it would feel slightly weak while holding something such as the phone or a glass of water. I also noticed that I would get little twitches on my face and scalp. It's very weird.

The dizziness and feeling like I am going to faint returned today. It was pretty bad. I think I am going to the hospital again to see if there is anything seriously wrong. Any thought or suggestions on what this might be?
