so for close to 3 weeks ive been feeling this constant slight dizziness it seems to go away slightly when i sleep but its still kinda there its not dizziness to where im going to fall over or anything. it really started to show up when i was searching wikipedia about a episode for some show that supposedly gave people seizures.
so when i see flashes or certain patterns my body feels like its going to seize up and i get this really weird feeling so far i have not had a seizure (knock on wood) but ive felt like ive come close a few time and each time it happened i was on the computer or watching tv and there was flashing and patterns.
from what ive searched on the internet its supposedly photosensitive epilepsy.. a week ago i had a slight headache and it hasent come back since.. ive just been having alot of health anxiety. i keep thinking it could be a brain tumor or somthing serious my dad keeps telling me that its nothing and tells me to basicly walk it off.. im 23 years old and ive never had really any health problems so it worries me.
(i have never had a seizure. im not on any kind of medications or drugs i have never drinked alchohol.)
my questions are:
can a brain tumor cause photosensitive epilepsy?
is it normal to have slight dizzyness for this long?
is photosensitive epilepsy permanent or does it go away after awhile?View Thread
