    Still trying to figure out what these scary attacks are>>>>

    This happened the other night, it was terrifying.

    Went up to bed, I had looked up at ceiling, felt alittle dizzy, Then got in bed.
    As soon as I laid down, went dizzy, felt fluttering in heart area. Tried to sleep but was still awake at 1am and I got a big palpitation and felt a sensation of pushing, fullness go up chest and neck to ears, then ears went deaf for afew seconds and felt pressured. I thought I was having a heart attack so rang for an ambulance. It didn’t arrive until 4am. They couldn’t find anything wrong but took me in for blood tests. Just before they got out to me, my neck had felt all cold up right-hand side, then cracked as I moved it.

    Hospital found nothing wrong and sent me home at 8am.

    Head was tipped to left when it happened, couldn’t hold it up.

    Since this episode my speech has gone all jumpy and hard to get some words out. I have had this before. Drs dont know what it is.

    Can you shine any light on what it might be please Sir? It has been getting me down, I am scared to be alive, and have felt suicidal because of it. Thank you.

    I don’t think my expertise fits with your symptoms. The origin could be from heart, vestibular mechanism or even circulatory problems. You do need to see a qualified neurologist to give you a full workup.

    So you do not think it could be nerves trapping in my neck?

    I’ve already been checked for ear problems and none found.

    Thank you Sir.

    Could it be Vertebral arteries getting occluded?

    Vertebral artery insufficiency is always a possibility but it is a rare condition which I have seen maybe 2-3 times in my career. Highly unlikely.

    OK, so that just leaves a heart problem then. My GP has referred me to cardiology so we will see what they say. Thank you Sir, I do appreciate your time and opinion.
