Q: Wake up dizzy, daily, pressure in head, nausea, weakness

Hi,

 

I really do not know how to proceed.  I had an episode last year, where for the first time I woke up very dizzy, and could not speak clearly.  My eyes were not reacting to light, according to my sister.  The feeling lasted about 4 hours. Then months later waking up dizzy happened now and then, then I would while at work, get dizzy and I was sitting.  Now these symptoms the last two weeks have been almost daily waking up dizzy, feel slight pressure in my head, and sick to my stomack, and weak. I do not know if this is related, but I have horrible involuntary muscles spasms throughout my entire body.  It first started in upperbody, now it is including lower body.  I have had both an MRI, which was normal and a stress ekg, which was non-conclusive, and then the they (I cannot remember name of it) where they put the gel and take picture of heart, and that was okay.  Often times I feel pressure in my neck.  Should I ask for angiogram?  Could I have problems with arteries and flow of blood?  I see my doctor on the 29th of this month, and should I be concerned about MS.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Thank you

Karen Scouten

Hi Karen,

How frustrating. I cannot even guess at advice for your next step. Perhaps your doctor can suggest a specialist.


One will be able to tell you something that works.  In the meantime, you should not experience these symptoms every few weeks. Document all of your symptoms and tests on a timeline to help your doctor decide.


Until you get an idea from your doctor, please take care of yourself. Take special care of the pressure in your head and neck. Your doctor should be able to give you tips on what to do.


Please let us know what you find out. I wish you luck.
