Very Weird and Scary "Episodes"
I have these episodes I don't really know how to describe. I have told my family doctor and he's sent me to an ear, nose and throat specialist who couldn't figure it out either I gave up for years but now these episodes are coming back again.
I mean that I can be episode free for months or even years as I was before I didn't have a single one for over 5 years until the day after I had an endoscopy/colonoscopy and my gastroenterologist gave me versed sedation where you are not completely out but you are semi conscious and can still respond to the doctor but you dont remember a thing.
Its like that medication he gave me triggered my episodes all over again I don't know but just a guess.
When I have these episodes here's what happens.
My brain feels like everything speeds up. I mean everthing around me feels like its going much much too fast. Like everything around me is moving in hyperspeed.
I can move my hand or walk and to me it looks like its going twice as fast as normal but I am moving or walking at normal speed.
No one around me can tell I am having one of these episodes unless I tell them. I can fully function when they are happening. I've never lost consciousness or anything like that.
They come on out of the blue for no reason and last anywhere between 5 to 15 minutes and go away just as suddenly as it started.
I can go without one of these like I said for even years and they can start back again without any warning.
Last time I had one has been about 7-8 months ago but I could have another one tonight or tomorrow, next week, next month, I don't know.
I even rushed to the emergency room when I had one of these and the ER doctor said he couldn't help me unless I was having one that very second.
Well thats impossible. If one starts by the time I call 911 or go to the hospital its going to be over by the time I get help.
I am so scared that one of these days this is fatal and its going to kill me.
I constantly always have this horrible high pitched ringing in my ears too, tinnitus. I don't know if thats a seperate issue from this or its related some how.
Does anyone else ever have these episodes that I am speaking of?
Please post. I feel like I am so alone and I'll never be diagnosed.
