Question: daily light-headedness with headaches
|faintingfrank - Fri Nov 18, 2005 1:48 am||
Almost every day I get hit with a wave of light-headedness. This first happened in June, then again in August for about a week. Now it happens daily. About a month ago I fainted suddenly one morning. Most evenings I have a mild headache. My left nostril bleeds once in a while. I have very mild chest discomfort from time to time. Currently I feel some sinus pressure.
I don't know whether these symptoms are at all related. The dizziness is crippling. I can get hit with it at any time so it's hard to live a normal life.

I should've mentioned that I am 31, male, Caucasian, 5'9", 168 lbs., and generally fit. My symptoms seem to go away when I sleep and when I run.
When I get hit with a wave of lightheadedness, I get very uncomfortable. I can't carry on a conversation, I sweat, and my heart pounds. The waves vary in intensity and last from 15 minutes to two hours.
I saw a doctor who sent me for a slew of blood tests and a electrocardiogram. All tests came back normal.
