I have problems with spasms mostly in my neck that can cause the problems you mention in me. Though I've had them for ages and like my collapsing look on it as being a part of my life now. It is good your doctors are doing tests, but I doubt very much you are having a stroke. There is something called 'coat hanger symdrome' which people with VV can get which tenses the muscles in the neck (from drops in BP associated with the condition) and it could be you are having symptoms as a result of that.
You said it makes you anxious - have you tried meditation at all? I meditate on a regular basis (though I need to do so lying down otherwise I pass out!) and find it helps wonderfully with anxiety related problems. You do need to learn to do it properly though. I can recommend a couple of books if you want to give it a go. If the tingling is anxiety you could be free of it pretty quickly doing that!
Take care, Becca
