Re: Blurred Vision, Lightheadiness, loss of hearing, sweating loads, heart racing

Could be any number of things. What do you mean by bright lights? Are the attacks triggered by bright lights? What did your docs rule out, if anything?

Panic Attacks, Hyperthyroidism, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome or some other type of dysautonomia, Photosensitive Epilepsy, cardiovascular disorders and I'm sure I'm missing a ton of others . . .

I know how frustrating (and expense!) it can be trying to find a doctor who will take you seriously. I have dysautonomia and have had "fainting spells" since kindergarten, I was 30 before I found a doctor conscientious enough to actually check for a disorder instead of rolling his eyes and telling me I was "just anxious and dehydrated". I urge you to try again with another doctor, all of these disorders can be successfully treated.

I would also like to add two more possibilities...

medication side effects

one or more blood borne bacterial infections (lyme disease and its' coinfections). Based on the posts coming out of the UK, I suspect there are many, many people there who are going undiagnosed...lyme and its coinfections are not rare, but often epidemic. Apparently the "rare" part is knowledgable doctors who are willing to keep abreast what promises to be a growing health problem.

I agree with the Lyme disease or other tick-borne disease idea. I have similar symptoms which get worse with bright light...I have Lyme.

Bless you, seekfind! I find others more receptive to info shared if more than one poster is suggesting it, especially one with first hand experience.

I hope and pray you are well, or on your way to good health.

I have dysautonomia, too. What is the cause of yours? Mine is from Lyme Disease.

This is probably anxiety...panic attacks are common to be diagnosed in ER's! Drink more water.
