Feeling of a wave going through my brain

Hi ladies.

Has any of you ever experienced something like a wave going through your brain. It literally feels like a flood in there or rush of blood (?). It makes me a little dizzy and I guess I get nervous and can't really express myself very well. I don't think I've felt it in the mornings... it's usually late afternoon or evenings. Tonight it's been really happening a lot. I read symptoms of TIA's and I don't think it's that... at least I hope it's not what it is. With all these things happening due to going into menopause... I wonder if that is another of the symptoms of meno. Or maybe it has to do with low blood pressure. My BP goes down usually late afternoon.

Whatever it is, I'm not complaining just curious. I know there are so many women out there with real serious conditions that I feel awful whining about something like this.

My best to all,
LMF

Re: Feeling of a wave going through my brain

luv: Are you getting disoriented and confused when these things are happening? How old are you? You can read some of my other posts on here so I don't have to type everything out again. My first thought about it is: Get your hormones checked to see if you're estrogen dominant. I started having seizures 5 years ago because of this. It's a nightmare. Read my posts to find out more.

Hi 92261.
Thank you for your reply. What I feel is not pain but when it happens I get sort of weird, it's hard to concentrate and I get anxious and can't get my words out right (not slurred, just can't articulate them very well) it goes away after a few minutes. I checked your other posts to other people but I didn't find anything like what I am describing. But, I'll definitely ask for a hormone check.

Thanks.
LMF

Re: Feeling of a wave going through my brain

Oh... I am 55 and I am curretly going through the menopause process. I am not on HRT. I also am a very high stress high anxiety person. When I'm anxious I get super hyper. Lately, I've been bumping into things with my right side of my body, the right arm. I feel so clumsy. I also keep dropping things. I don't know what's going on.

Thank you
LMF

Re: Feeling of a wave going through my brain

Luv: you might need to see an endocrinologist to get a hormone check. Most PCP's and gyno's won't do it. If you're gyno will then you're lucky. Usually the gyno's only want to deal with babies and paps and don't want to deal with these hormone issues. That's the problem I ran into. Make them check your blood sugar levels too to make sure you're not a diabetic.

Re: Feeling of a wave going through my brain

Sounds like brain zaps...many people get these when they are taking or weaning/stopping antidepressants? Are you taking any? If so have you recently changed dosage?? It may be associated with other meds but not sure?? Also maybe a vitamin deficiency??
