OMG

Hey all,
Lately I've been getting dizzy spells that makes me lose my sight. It fades and I get my sight back after something sugary. It freaks me out cos it usually happens when I'm alone. Does anyone know why it happens???

Re: OMG

Hi Beth

That sounds really serious.

We cannot emphasise enough that you see a doctor about it as soon as you can before it catches you out in a potentially dangerous situation.

There could be a few different reasons for this but there are no doctors on these forums and, even if there were, no one could offer a diagnosis of any sort of validity without a direct examination.

Please get yourself to a doctor ASAP.

Re: OMG

I'll try to see one soon but it takes like 5weeks to get in to a doctor so I rarely go to one, even if I'm sick I don't go cos its too much of a hassle for dad

Hi Beth.

 

Lex is right, that sounds rather concerning. If it's not possible for you to get to a doctor soon could you maybe call Healthdirect Australia and see what they suggest? 

Re: OMG

I did and they said to go to the doctor ASAP

Re: OMG

I guess in the meantime, until you visit the doc,it doesn't hurt to eat well, plenty of water and quality rest. 

Re: OMG

Hey Beth,

 

Sorry I have no idea what might be the cause of it...

AlthoughI think in the meantime just have a chat to your Dad or anyone close to you to let them know that there may be something wrong. I think your parents will be just as concerned if not more so than what you are.

Re: OMG

Yeah I told dad today, and said I need a doctors appointment

Re: OMG

Hey Beth,

 

Great work. Get off to the doc as soon as you can. Lex is right - dissy spells can mean a bunch of very serious and not serious things - but you totally need to go see a GP to find out. 

 

Does your dad know how serious it is? Make sure you get there ASAP and let us know how you go.
