It was such a relef to see your forum listing. I recently had two episodes, both of which were extremely frightening. In both cases, I was sitting, calm and relaxed, and all of a sudden my vision began to blur. The blurring got worse and worse unitl it got completely black. Then my arm started tingling and slowly my vision returned to normal. In my particular case, I was tested for blood sugar and the usual blood tests before being referred to a cardiologist, who eventually did a tilt table test. I am now taking Atenolol 25 mg, once a day.
