I don't think it fits under epilepsy, but I don't know who to ask. For the past year and a half, I have experienced random "seizures", usually during the day or at school. I say "seizures" because I am not quite sure what they are. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism two years ago, and also don't know if the two are connected in some way. What happens is normally I start feeling weak for a few seconds, and then it feels as if my eyes are being tossed around in a washing machine. It happens very suddenly, and I find myself always quickly grasping my head with my hands because the shock is so great, as if trying to stabalize myself. Luckily this usually occurs while at sitting in a desk chair at school, but it has happened in various other locations. Afterwards I feel slightly dizzy and weak, but after a few others recover. I have absolutely no idea what this is, can anybody help me? I've been to the doctor and they have run EKG's and such, and haven't found anything.View Thread
