I'm new here. I had sudden woozy feeling then numbness and tingling to face and extremeties. I went to the ER, they think TIA(mini stroke). I saw a Neurologist who ordered EEG, EMG, VER. Only showed Carpal tunnel. MRI of spine pending ? M.S.
However, the episodes continue. No warning, anytime i.e. Just sitting.
I noticed my heart rest would also increase with the woozy feeling and numbness/tingling.
So, I went back to the ER and they gave me medication to decrease my heart rate, but the episodes continue. I also noticed that if a use calming techniques or someone is there to calm me the symptoms improve most times, but not always.
I'm not stressed in my personal life. My job is high stress, but that's not unusual. It's a very high stress job. I talked with my primary Doctor. She ordered Xanax and Lexapro.
? Anxiety/panic attacks. Will theses meds help if it is?
