Hi I dunno if anyone here can help but I'm very confused after neurologists suggested my reason for being rushed to hospital at the weekend was due to a 'dissociative attack'. I googled the symptoms & they dont match what happened to me.
Basically I do t recall much apart from feelimg very unwell, dizzy, going numb nearly all over, coiodnt even feel my throat to breathe, hardly able to move, felt like I was going unconscious. Apparently an ambulance came, I was on the floor, the ambulance girl took one look at my pupils & my pulse & immediately rushed me to hospital. They say my pupils were dilated, i went blue, couldnt breathe normally, I was vomiting, making no sense & my vitals were all over the place. They managed to stabilise me & kept me over night. The next day a neurologist came. I was stable by then & able to communicate & he basically said he thought it was some dissociative attack but did no tests. He called it a 'funny turn' but this doesn't add up to me as in my experience, ambulance crews don't take u to the hospital unless they witness something very wrong. A funny turn would've been monitored at home & from what I've read, doesn't cause u to turn blue & dilate pupils. The A&E staff suggested an allergic reaction which is very different to the neurologists opinion. The neurologists didn't see me while it was happening though. They finally turned up the next day when I was stable.
I wonder if anyone here had these symptoms with something psychological?
I just want to know what it is as still unwell & not getting any help.
