Last March I was at a busy store with my 8 month old baby. I was carrying him with a baby carrier and since it was still cold out I was wearing a pretty warm coat. I started sweating while I was shopping but figured it was just too warm in the store. It was when I got to the register that I started to sweat profusely almost like cold sweats you get when you're sick. As soon as I stepped outside the store I became very dizzy and started to almost black out from the stars I was seeing. I knelt down and called for help from a nearby employee. At that point I felt like I couldn't control the spinning and blacking out but I had my baby attached to me so i somehow managed to not faint. I spend the next two hours in the same spot with such horrible spinning that I couldn't open my eyes or breathe normally, scared to death that in any moment I could pass out with you baby on my chest. As I could no longer walk or move I agreed to have the ambulance come and get us. They had to carry us in to the car because I couldn't stand on my own without falling over. At the emergency room they did a mri and blood test and after 4 hours I was able to wobble out of the hospital with the help of a family member. All the door said was that it could've been vertigo. Ever since that day I have a hard time going anywhere with my child in fear that it could happen again. And now that's he's big enough to run away I wouldn't be able to hold on to him if it happens. It has gotten a little better now but in the beginning if I went out even down the street I would feel the same thing happen, the sweating, dizziness, and extremely afraid of making a fool of my self again. So basically I always need someone to go anywhere with me and it sucks because I miss going shopping alone and have time to myself. Walking up to the register is what triggers it most of the time. I cant go on any rides or anything like that because I'll start spinning. May be a coincidence but I started my period a day after the initial incident. And now almost every time I get dizzy and faint before my period. I'm sorry this turned in to such a long post but I was wondering if there was anyone out there with a similar story. Thank you
