This one is going to be long, so sorry in advance.
So about a couple months ago I woke up and went to go eat breakfast and all of a sudden I my head started to feel weird and I got a brief blind spot in the corner of my left eye. I felt confused and I thought I was going to faint.
I went down to lie down for a bit and all of a sudden I started to get chills. This lasted for about an hour and then the symptoms subsided and I felt ok. I went to the eye doctor and they did a scan and said what I probably experienced was on Ocular Migraine and it wasn't anything to worry about.
So of course stupid me just writes it off as nothing. Few months pass and I experience the same thing on March 11th around 3pm , but this time without the blind spot or halo in the eye. Just weird feeling in my head, like something was off and I was about to lose control accompanied by almost a hypoglycemic feeling, ( I hadn't eaten since 10am that day ) followed by chills that lasted about an hour. I thought maybe since i hadn't eaten anything I was feeling shaky or weird so I had something to eat.
Ok I said, if this happens again I'm going to the doctors. The next day it happened again. I immediately made an appointement with my primary care doctor . We checked for Diabetes, Lyme Disease, Low Blood Sugar, Hypoglycemia, and all that stuff and everything came back fine on my blood work.
Doctor said it's anxiety but I don't really have much stress in my life at the moment and I do get anxious when I'm in a social setting but nothing like this. After this second episode I felt very disconnected and almost in a haze or heavy brain fog for a week or so.
When I went for a follow up visit on the 27th of March on my way to the Doctors office my head felt weird again like I was about to lose control or in the foggy state. I was scared to drive home but the feeling passed after awhile. When I told him about it he just brushes it off.
He did the all the typical neurological tests to see if my arm and leg strength were ok, following his fingers , standing up straight , walking in a straight line etc. Everything checked out.
Now when I wake up in the mornings my head feels weird again. And if I touch the top of my head it makes the feeling worse. Its just a very concerning thing. I don't know if it's anxiety and I'm not sure if this can be related to a gut issue as my stools have been loose and flat . Docs thinks i might have IBS . I'm being tested for Celiac and IBS.
He says I don't need to see a neurologist so I can't see one unless he gives me a clinical referral . I'm just worried its something more than anxiety because when I touch my head in feels worse. I don't get headaches but man when I get the feeling I feel confused and really weird.
