Yesterday, I experienced a strange sensation. While I was at work, I got really dizzy and everything went blurry for about 20-30 seconds. I immediately started feeling nauseous and experienced a burning pain in my upper back, and a feeling of "fullness" in my mid-lower back. I took some Tylenol 3 and got up to walk around, but I felt so disoriented. I ended up leaving work a half-hour later, and don't remember really driving home now. This is my worry - I have an AVM (vascular malformation) that was diagnosed just before THanksgiving in my Spine (T-10-12 area), and I don't know if this is related. The neuro told me that if I would have a small hemorraghe, I would have a headache/migraine and some back pain, but this doesn't seem to jive. Today I feel better, but I still have the back pain and my legs seem a little weaker, but the weakness in my legs comes and goes anyway, from being okay to not being able to walk across my house.

Has anyone here ever had a minor spinal stroke, and what were those symptoms? I'd appreciate any info on the subject.
