I went to the Doctor today and he's told me it looks like preSyncope. My symptons went from 30 mins. of lightheaded to my eyes at bedtime pulling upwards, so bad I would have to keep opening my eyes to stop it. This would go o for about 40 mins and lasted for at least a month.

Now the eye thing has come to a stop, but when I get an episode it feels like I could swallow my touge if I don't control the episode, like I do. That last about a half hour.

The whole thing is so weird to me, I advoided the doctor because I didn't want to talk about such weird stuff going on with me.

I found this sight after the doctor appointment and read some of the comments. It looks like alot of people get sick, that's never happen to me, yet.
