Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You could be having dissociative sensory problem which may need a thorough evaluation by your Psychiatrist/Neurologist. Do you get these attacks often. Are you having trouble sleeping. You need to eat healthy, drink plenty of water, exercise daily. Get 6-8 hours of sleep daily.

Hello, welcome to HCM. You could be having a neirological disorder or any other medical issue but for right diagnosis your detailed history is required. I advice you must visit your GP and get yourself thoroughly evaluated. You might need a specialist in case it turns out to be a neural disorder. Wish you good health.

Hi Emily,

i'm sorry to hear about your ordeal as I can relate as I have had similar mystery ailments like the one you have mentioned for the past 8 years. I would recommend a follow up with your family doctor and request an MRI of your brain. These sound like potential neurological symptoms so it can't hurt. Additionally I would request a blood test to test your vitamin, and electrolyte levels. Vitamin D, potassium, and magnesium and other vitamin deficiences can wreak havoc on your body. Good luck to you and I hope you are able to get some answers!
