Welcome to HCM

You have symptoms like seeing doubles, slurring of speech, dizziness etc. These symptoms are occurring in episodic manner and usually last for about 10 minutes. You have symptoms of loss of balance also. Such type of symptoms commonly seen in some form of anxiety or also due to seizure. Seizure should be ruled out with proper history and imaging modalities. Once anxiety is discovered then we can give treatment of anxiety like SSRIs and SNRI medicines.

Non medicinal treatment like Progressive Muscle Relaxation Exercises, Breathing Exercises help in quick recovery.
