I'm pretty new to these boards, but I've got a serious question.
Sometimes, every few months or so, when I stand up and stretch, my vision blacks out and I see white spots, my whole body tingles and the back of my head feels like it's going to fall off. The headache part lingers for a few minutes, but aside from a slight residual feeling of numbness it mostly is gone after a minute or two. Afterwards, I feel different mentally, though, like my viewpoint has been twisted around 90 degrees or something. This has happened on and off ever since I was fourteen (eleven years ago), when I almost passed out while standing in line at an amusement park from the heat. Could this be a seizure? I've never been diagnosed with anything serious, but I've also never mentioned this to anyone.
<sigh> Ok, I've been sitting here staring at this post for something like five minutes trying to make myself post it. I hate admitting to anyone when I feel less than 100% and the only reason I'm posting this now is because this just happened again last Friday and it scared me more than telling some complete stranger that I'm not feeling well http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/redface.gif
