Can anyone help to put my mind at rest?? This is what happened to me.....I'm 50 yr old female. Two weeks ago I spent a saturday afternoon laying on the couch chatting to a friend on the phone. I hadn't eaten very much, just a few crackers and later had 2 glasses of red wine. The wine made me feel dozy, but not drunk. At 9.30 I got up off the couch to go to bed. I remember walking into the kitchen to get a drink and the next thing i remember is waking up on the kitchen floor. This happened 3 times in total all within the space of 5 mins. Thats all i know about what happened. I've been to see my doctor, had an ECG and bloods taken all of which were normal. I'm now waiting to see a neurologist. Im so worried and thinking all sorts of things.....i've almost convinced myself i have a brain tumour and i'm dying. I'm know this is an extreme reaction but i'm an anxious person at the best of times and my doctor hasn't offered me any possible explanations. Please help if you can........i'm going out of my mind with worry!
If the doctors thought it was a brain tumor, they would have given you some imaging studies asap. Passing out can be autonomic (blood pressure not coming up fast enough when you stand), ear issues, neurological - so it may take a few tests. Your doc can't offer anything as the explanations are pretty endless at this point with a tumor being a pretty rare one especially if that is your only symptom.
I would wait until you see a doctor, get some more testing - but having normal studies at this point should make you feel better.
