| | Nighttime dizziness, lightheadness.. SCARED!
I guess the best thing to do is start off w/ a general background.
I'm a 34 year old Army Wife so yes my life is constantly full of fear & dread in that fact, alone.
I'm on HBP medicine, micardis hct, an antidepressant & depakote for bipolar disorder, xanax for anxiety as needed, Neurontin for pain in my back from degenerative disks & sciatica & i have an ankle fusion.
About 2 weeks ago, while lying in bed i suddenly started feeling dizzy. It only lasted for a few moments then it passed but it was enough to where it was.. "noticeable". I had another spell a few hours later, again while in bed, relaxing.
Next day was fine.. but that night, while relaxing, i had another one, then another, then another.
Now i am to the point to where every night & even a few times during the day i suffer w/ dizziness & lightheadness. Sometimes it is accompanied by heart palpitaions, sometimes not. The spells will suddenly hit me then, vanish. Last night i was at the movies w/ a friend & i began laughing hysterically at a scene & i felt like i was going to pass out & well, it ruined the whole thing. It was terrifying. It was like my air was cut off & i thought i was going to faint. I've laughed hard before but i have NEVER had something like that happen to me. I'm so scared.. i am afraid there is something WRONG & i'm ready to go to an er & demand a CT scan of my head i'm so worried. Also, I went to an open clinic in town today & the NP said that i had a little fluid in my right ear but not alot.
