I hope this doesn't breach T&C but I don't think it's in any way urgent and as ever if I thought it was I would get help asap.
I have this weird dizziness that I'm on medication for, more or less controlled most of the time though the medication wears off after a bit. I thought it might have started to do it this week, but was feeling mostly ok. Then went to a talk yesterday evening and about halfway through suddenly started to feel really unwell, thought I was coming down with flu (even after flu jab!) as felt a bit like that. Also had the same vague 'dizzy' feeling I get at other times, vaguely nauseous, tingling hands and my vision started to go dark (I think I might have fainted if I'd been standing up, not sure though). After about 15 mins of me wondering if I'd have to somehow leave, it more or less stopped and I felt ok again. Not brilliant though and I haven't felt great today (have contemplated leaving work).
Just wondering if anyone else has had similar? It does feel vaguely like one of those annoying viruses, except that the thing yesterday which I thought would lead to me crashing out in bed didn't last! I emailed my GP (we do email, he said it's easier than me coming back and forth all the time with asthma and this other thing though of course I can still see him if I want). No reply yet, have booked in to see him on first available appt (Wednesday).
However, am not really sure whether I need to (if it's a virus, no point really) or if I should be seeing someone sooner. I realised afterwards that it sounds rather like a panic attack, but I wasn't at all panicky or anxious and oddly enough my chest was behaving itself, wasn't even hyperventilating!
Anyway sorry for really long ramble...just wondered if I was the only one or if I ought to be seeing someone sooner than Wednesday (not urgently though...feel a bit like a hypochondriac)! Thought of ringing NHS Direct for advice but they are always hyper-cautious and will probably just send me to OOH whether I need it or not.
