So confused about my 'condition'

Posted , 3 users are following.

Over the last 5 years I've had two blackouts (the last 2 years ago) specialists seem to have taken my heart out of the equasion and for a year or more I've been pretty much symptom free. If I throw myself back on the bed on the right side I can create a little dizinees and vision distortion/spinning room, also I suffer a little from top shelf syndrome, but very mildly, however, a couple of weeks ago I had a touch of food poisoning, as I recovered I was sat watching tv when suddenly I started hallucinating, it seemed as though hundreds of pictures were flashing before my eyes, like a very fast slide show, I felt really bad a headache I was very sick and pouring sweat and went very pale, quite frightening really. I thought that because of the food poisoning it might have been down to severe dehydration so rehydrated and after a couple of days got back to normal, I have since had several further incidents, although less severe, but they are very debillitating and can appear at almost any time, (I'm dreading going to my son's wedding later today). Does anyone else recognise these symptoms please,  I really need to be able to narrow down these symptoms in order to explain to my doctor, I'm sorry this post is so long and. ague but I have very little to go on. Any advice very welcome ... Roger

    Hi Roger,

    I have had a similar experience and after blacking out twice I was admitted to the hospital.  It turns out I have spondalosys if the neck that caused the blackout. I also have had BPPV for 4 years now with intermittent issues surrounding that.
