Something happened to me this week, and as I search online it's seeming more like I might've been having seizures. Should I contact a neurologist?
8:05 am - in a weekly meeting suddenly overwhelmed with sensation that I'd dreamed this scene recently. It intensified right at the point of when I thought I was going to remember the memory then I lost the image and I felt waves of dizziness, felt flushed then like all the blood rushed from my head and had intense waves of nausea. Felt like I might vomit. After I was scared and tired.
8:30 am - sales reps giving a presentation in my office. About midway through their presentation I felt like I knew each of them from some other encounter prior to today (I did not). Overwhelming deja vu, flush then blood rushing from face, dizziness and intense waves of nausea again.
10:30 - same feelings but don't remember what the memory was or brought it on.
11:15 - conference call. Overwhelming deja vu (but I don't remember why), flush then blood rushing from face, dizziness and waves of nausea.
Noon - went home sick. I felt exhausted and scared. Thought I might just be exhausted and have a stomach bug.
1pm - I was in the basement bathroom (which I never use) and felt deja vu coming on again. Very vivid as if I was in a dream I'd had before. The dream was very bright white but dark at the same time. All the same physical feelings plus my tongue was tingling, then the room started spinning, I think my ears were ringing and it felt like I was going to black out. I don't remember what happened next. Next thing I remember is bracing myself at the sink and staring in the mirror.
Slept most of the day in front of the TV. wanted to occupy my mind so it didn't happen again.
Stayed home Friday and was completely lethargic all day. No appetite and no desire to even reply to work emails. Went to bed at 8pm and slept till 8:30 Saturday morning.
Felt fine Saturday.
I remember that this has happened to me before, but I can't remember how often or how long ago. It's never happened so intensely like this, and I don't ever remember it happening more than once at a time.View Thread
Thanks so much Jen! I decided to write it down while it was still fresh, partly because I was just trying to sort out what the heck had just happened to me! At least I have direction and an action plan now. thanks so much for taking the time to give your input. It's really appreciated!View Thread
Thanks for your input and advice Candi! I will be making a doctor appt on Monday. This truly scared the wits out of me...felt a little like I was losing my mind(and I'm generally a level-headed, joyful person) View Thread
