I don't know what this is? Can you help?


Since December 2011, I have had the following happen:-

right side of my head and behind my ear gets a burning sensation and it feels like it is just going to explode from pain and compression
I get dizzy
i battle to comprehend what is being said or here
for some reason i black out for about 15 minutes (totally lights out)
when i wake i am so disorientated and still need to recollect where i am or should be doing
my body feels like a dead weight feeling and very slow
not long after this i need to put my head down and sleep (ranges from half an hour to an hour, sometimes more). I thought that the sleep would help me feel better and fully alert again.
but it does not, it is like i cannot wait to go to bed at night to get some REAL sleep.

what is going on in my body? i don't understand why? i was told by a doctor that it is definitely not epilepsy.

I am not wanting to have issues that are unnecessary ; worry about something that i should not and especially pay doctors to look for something that is a 'either this or that' scenario. i am wanting to know if i am concerned about nothing at all.
In small proportions we just beauties see, in small measures life my perfect be!
