Leaning to the left – neurological disorders forum – ehealthforum electricity production in the us

##

I’m very concerned about my 17 year old daughter. Recently she has been experiencing kind of a dizzy feeling, and feeling like she’s leaning to the left.It doesn’t happen every day ….. It’s like every 2 or 3 days. She’s been experiencing it for about 3 weeks now. Also, it doesn’t matter of the body position ….. two times sitting and two times standing. The last time, she was sitting in one of her classes at school…..She said it really scared her to the point where she almost started crying. The episodes only last from maybe 30 seconds to 1 – 1 1/2 minutes.

* Severe headaches since she’s been 4 years old. They did a CT Scan and MRI many years ago, but it was normal. Her doctors felt that maybe her headaches were migraines…..However, she never experienced other symptoms associated with migraines, such as, halos. She does vomit sometimes though. They gave her presciption meds, because instead she (we) have controlled her headaches for 13 years with OTC meds (Advil, Tylenol, etc.). She does continue to get severe occasional headaches though.

* She had numerous sinus infections for years. Approx. 4-5 years ago she had surgery to drain her sinuses. Since then, she occasionally gets congested, but nothing severe like before. She said she isn’t congested right now (with the leaning feeling).

* This past year she has became very dizzy and basically fainted to the ground 2 times. She has been dizzy multiple other times without fainting also. Her doctor thought maybe she wasn’t eating right which was causing her dizziness …. But, actually she has always eaten pretty well….Pretty well-balanced. Her blood tests were all "normal".

My daughter doesn’t complain about aches and pains, not even when she has broken a bone, or anything like that …. She’s a tough person that even competed high-level gymnastics with torn ankle tendons and shin splints …… So when she tells me something isn’t right, I LISTEN!! And for it to scare her to the point of crying, something is seriously going on and it’s truly worrying me.

I am 53 years old and am experiencing random spells of leaning to the left. The spells occur instantly without any warning and can occur regardless of whether I have been walking, standing, or lying. During the spell, I sway repeatedly to the left, while in a deep mental fog. Mentally, I am not there. In 1-2 minutes, I return to awareness and eventually feel normal again. At times, I only sway repeatedly to the left, and at times I fall unconscious onto the floor. One doctor tells me I have POTS, while another doctor tells me I have Barorecptor Reflex Failure because I also have extreme high and low blood pressure readings. I was referred yesterday by my Mayo physician for neurological testing in two weeks. During a neurological exam, I leaned significantly to the left, when he asked me to close my eyes and extend both arms in front of me. I’m eager to see the results. I belive I have more than one form of Dysautonomia, which is an umbrella term. I have more than just Baro., but also something that is neurological. I had a severe and prolonged grand mal sezuire, on the right side of my brain, in March 2010, due to 300+ blood pressure. I believe there is a relationship between the severe seizure and leaning to my left.
