I never knew my 3 separate problems were all the same; now I think they are Problem 1: I have had an HSG and cervical biopsy in the last 2 years and after both I became very sweaty and cold, and my bp dropped and I was very out of it. I have to have another HSG and told my doc of the last 2 experiences - he said I had vaso- vagal reactions. So I searched the internet and came upon this. Problem 2: Starting in elementary school I began having episodes where I would lose my vision. They were often associated with physical activity but not always. I remember standing in the lunch line and I got this buzzing in my ears and then my sight would be gone. I was so out of it I kept walking with my lunch tray in my hands. These episodes happened all the time, although I never lost consciousness the nurse always had smelling salts on hand for me. After I came out of it I would always feel very week as if my body had been sucked of life. I had an EKG and echocardiogran and was looked at by neurologist to rule out epilepsy - I was never given a diagnosis. I have learned to feel when these episodes are coming and if I sit with my head between my legs and drink something sugary I can usually hold off the loss of eye sight. The last time I lost my vision was about 10 years ago at an A&W, I hit my head on a pillar there. Problem 3: About every 4-6 months a few days before my period, I will wake up in the middle of the night with this feeling that I cant even describe. I will be cold/hot, sweaty, have diarrhea (sort of), shaky - I just feel like dying would have to be better than the way I feel at that time. I usually get my husband to get me a cold washcloth and then I bounce my leg (keep my mind off feeling like death) till I fall asleep. I have found myself on the cold bathroom floor many times. Nothing makes me feel better. I cant sit, I cant stand, I cant lie down. When Im like this I dont know what to do. One doc siad maybe they were panic attacks, one said it was a drop in progesterone, and most dont have anything to say. Im glad to have found a place to feel not so alone, now I wish I knew if I should do something about this or if Ill just be looked at like a hypochondriac by my doctor. Thanks for letting me tell my story!
