I have been having bouts of a really weird, and awful sensation. Its not constant, but it happens mostly during times when I need to focus. Like in the middle of a conversation, or if I am sitting still or standing for any length of time. I get this extreme dizzy feeling, and feeling of almost being out of body. I am watching people talk, but have a hard time understand what they are saying. This is not anxiety or in high stress situations, in fact, it seems to happen less if I am stressed, and am able/ have to force myself to be focused. It almost feels as if I am going to have a seizure, although I have never had one, so I am not sure how to explain the feeling. I am also so tiered, and not sleeping soundly at all.
I am having trouble occasionally interpreting what I am looking at. Like a simple picture of a dog, I will be staring at it trying to figure out what I am looking at. Its not like its blurred, or I cant see. I have 20/20 vision, its like my brain has no clue what it is looking at. When it starts I get nervous I am about to pass out or have a seziure or something. I normally try to move around, or get up if I am not to dizzy to stand.
I am worried I will just fall over, pass out, or have a seziure at my new job. My insurance will start next month, so I do plan on speaking to a Doctor, but I am wondering if there are any test, or diseases I should ask to be tested for. I am not having head aches, but I do have some pain in my back (i do not think the two are related, but I am no Doctor, so I am not opposed to looking into anything). My mom has MS. I was told its not hereditary, so I have not spent much time even thinking about that, but maybe I should mention it.
Any help would be great. I am not super worried yet (but I am a pretty mellow person in general). Mostly concerned I will have some episode I wont be able to cover up. So far I am able to at least nod and smile when its happening, and pretend nothing is happening.
