Customer Question

I have passed out a few times over the past couple weeks.After the first time I had slurred speech and was stuttering, but that stopped after three days and hasn't returned. My mri was normal and my eeg was normal. I will feel fine one day and completely lightheaded and dizzy then next. The past few days I have started having hallucinations as well. Whenever I do pass out, its just for a few seconds and when I come to my muscles are extremely weak and I can't stand up for a few minutes.

Are you saying you actually faint, or is it that you just lose track of time and events for a few seconds? What kind of hallucinations, and have you seen any specialists about all this?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I actually faint, as in fall down and lose consciousness. The hallucinations are just totally random (I spent a few minutes trying to catch a cat in my apartment that wasn't there). I've seen my primary doctor and a neurologist but they don't have any answers.
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
Were you checked for anemia? Did the neurologist have absolutely nothing to say about this?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I have been checked for anemia. The neurologist did an eeg but never called about it.
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
you don't know the results? What did the neurologist say when he saw you?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I'm assuming it was normal since she never called. I didn't like the neurologist very much which is why I'm hesitant to keep seeing more doctors. All she said was that the only thing it could be is some sort of seizure, but she would have had to call if it was abnormal. Then she said I'm probably just anorexic, which is definitely not true.
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
Has anybody been with you when one of these happened, and, if so, what did they say happened?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
My friends were with me the first time and my sister the second. They all said I told them I felt funny a few minutes before and then just passed out. Like I said, the first time I was disoriented and had slurred/stuttered speech, but that hasn't happened again
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
Ok. All I can do here is give you my thoughts on what's going on here--will that be enough?

As long as they're somewhat helpful
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
Well, the hallucinations and the fainting or near fainting sound like a type of temporal lobe or psychomotor seizure. It may take a more specialized EEG to evaluate for that. I really can't think of a cluster of symptoms as you describe them that fit any other diagnosis.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
