Hot Flashes & Dizzy

I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced this.

More and more often lately (every couple of months), I get these spells where a tingling sensation shoots up my legs and it feels like electrical shocks/lightening bolts with every step. Then I get really hot and feel dizzy (like I might pass out). The tingling is normal, but when the dizziness sets in the tingling is like nothing I've ever felt before. It's really like high voltage electricity. It's usually also accompanied with feeling like I'm going to pee.

Seeing as it all starts with the tingling, I can't help but think it's MS related.

I'm no where near menopause, so that doesn't explain the hot flashes. And defo not pregnant either.

Has anyone experienced this? Know of anything that helps? What do you do when it happens?

The first time it happened, it was so bad that I couldn't walk - tingling/electric shocks were so stong my legs wouldn't work. The strange part was that it only lasted 10 minutes and then I was fine.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and for your thoughts / replies.
