Hi I'm 17 (will be 18 in 2 weeks if that means anything) since I was 15 I've been experiencing these symptoms. I've been to multiple doctors and none of them can tell me what's wrong. It comes and goes randomly (on for a few weeks then off for a few months or just happens one or two days every few months) It usually only lasts between 10 Am to 3 pm, but occasionally it will last for the whole day. I'll wake up feeling very dizzy and if I focus on something my vision gets blurry and I have an almost haze over my vision, if people talk to me its almost as if I'm in a episode of Charlie Brown and everyone sounds like an adult. After a few hours (and some help with coffee, I rarely drink it and go months without it, but it seems to be the only thing that makes me feel "normal" again) I'll stand up and I'll feel lightheaded for another few hours, I'll see spots floating around in my vision and if I look at things I almost see what I can only describe as static emmiting from it. The weird thing is these aren't after images, they change depending on what I'm looking at. I feel a pressure behind my eyelids and I just feel anxious and out of it. Around 3 pm the symptoms usually go away and I get this rush of energy and feel fine for the rest of the day. Sometimes (not all the time) I'll look at the ground and it feels like it is farther than it actually is, almost as if I'm "floating" above my body.
Also if this matters at all (this is a desperate issue, at least I think) I've been tested for diabetes, anemia and a bunch of things. Thyroid and horome levels are also normal. And sometimes when I'm trying to fall asleep my leg will randomly twitch and I'll get this uncomfortable sensation in it whereiI have to constantly move it and adjust it. It only lasts for a half hour tops but the whole time I keep having to adjust my leg, I can't keep it still. And I'll get these almost "ghost bug" sensations where I'll feel a tickling against my cheek or leg, almost like someone is brushing a strand of hair against me, I've checked for bugs and even get the sensation with the lights on, so there's no actual bugs its just in my mind.
Please please if you know what is going on help me out thank you for reading
