Recently I have been having these episodes where I'll start feeling light headed and then in most of the episode i'll fall to the ground. I won't be able to move for at least several minutes. Sometimes i'll just fall and there will be no feeling of lightheadedness to warn me. I will just fall. Sometimes I'll kind of lose awareness. Like I'm there but not quite there if you get what I'm talking about. Just a couple of days ago I had been walking down the hall after giving my mom the portable phone got to the first step at the top of the stairs my legs buckled and I fell backwards. I stayed on the floor for about maybe 10 minutes before I could finally get back up again. I was awake, I know that. I remember just staring at the ceiling.
I figure i will mention instances where I was walking up the stairs and I also will fall down. I'll stay down for about 5 minutes before I can get up again. It's like my body doesn't want to obey my mind. Cause I keep thinking "C'mon it's time to get up now." but my body doesn't respond until a little while later.
Any Ideas about what could be going on?
