brain compression/tumor?
hi
so far over the course of three weeks, i've had two "mini strokes"??
i have no idea what it is but when it happens it is always in the middle of my sleep.the first one happened around 3am and my second happened around 1am
what happens is all my muscles contract and my entire body locks in place.the message from my brain to move any part of my body doesn't seem to get across to the rest of my body.my brain feels as if it's a piece of paper being crumpled into something the size of a golf ball.all i feel is massive compression in my brain and i can't move or scream and i have absolutely no control over myself.it only lasts around 5 to 15 or 20 seconds.
during my second one of these, it felt like i was being levitated off my bed
and no matter how hard i try, i can't make ANY movement whatsoever or scream or talk.
nothing.
i'm only 16 years old.
i also feel light compression in my brain throughout the day and almost always have headaches.
could this be a brain tumor? or what kind of attack could this be?  

please, if you can be of ANY help post a response.
thank you.

Were the strokes diagnosed by a doctor? A neurologist? Were you taken to an ER?
Have you had an MRI, MRA or CT scan? Have you told your parents?

When you say you have no control, do you lose continence? Or do you stare?

It can be epilepsy, or a number of things - but you need to see a doctor... no one can diagnose over the internet.
