Thanks for all these postings. I am trying to figure out what happened to me this weekend. (My doctor didn't know.) I had a rushing sound in my head and a wave of intense heat just after I encountered intense pain in the back of my knee when I knelt on the floor. Everything was very clear. I knew I should drink some water so I got myself some. The kitchen had an extra glow of light - kinda like fog, but actually everything was clearer than normal. I decided to find a chair to sit because I thought I might pass out. I saw flashes of bright light in my head, so I rubbed my hands against my temples. Yikes - the sound was SO loud. I began praying to God, telling him that if I wasn't dying, I would continue to try to do His work. It all ended after about a minute or so. I am 53, fainted as a child, and my blood pressure is aleways low. I wonder if I had a mild VVR?
