I am a 25 year old female. I am not on any medications and otherwise in good health. For a few years I have had spells of dizziness. Not lightheadness, but swirling.. my heart pounds, my stomach gets upset from the swirling, sometimes it feels like I am sitting back in my head and watching everything as if my eyes are a television that is too far away. It seems to come out of nowhere and last for only a few moments. Sometimes it is once a week others a few times a day. I had blood tests years ago for thyroid, sugar levels ... evrything under the sun. Again last July I had the tests again...nothing.. everything is fine my doctor says. Well it hit a whole new level this past weekend. Over the past few weeks I have been getting the spells off and on more frequently and stronger. This past Friday it was happening quite a bit, that evening I got a HORRIBLE headache (whether it is linked I do not know, I do tend to get very bad headaches every so often). The next morning I woke up and it felt as though I was drunk off and on. At points I could not stand from the dizziness. Over the next 2 days off and on things would look sideways, like I was in a fun house. In between these spells I still was not feeling normal.. although I sound normal speaking in my head I feel like I am having trouble turning my thought into words. I visited my doctor this morning and he says he does not know that maybe it is just a virus that if it happens again we will do more blood tests but i have done lots of blood tests for the same things over and over. I dont know what is wrong with me but I know I dont feel right and it has been happening for many years off and on... does anyone have any idea what could be going on?
