Question: My daughter turned 11 today. This morning she was getting ready for camp and she was normal, great mood excited about a performance she was doing today. As I was doing her hair, she said she felt dizzy and she got very pale, blacked out, fell into my arms and I laid her on the couch. The entire incident must have been no longer than 10 seconds. By the time I got her to the couch, she was awake and aware..she asked what happened? then she said "what is that noise" I asked "what noise, what does it sound like?" she said it sounded like buzzing. It too went away after a few seconds. The paramedics arrived and took all her vitals and tested her blood sugar....all of which were ok. She has never had anything wrong and has never been on any kind of medication.

Brief Answer:
Could be aseisure or rhythm disturbance

Detailed Answer:
Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic.
By what you quote I feel it could be -
1. A form of seizure
2. A rhythm abnormality of the heart p conduction abnormality.
3. A transient ischemic attack of the brain - few seconds cut off of blood supply.

Have a few questions -
1. Is there any history of seizures in the family?
2. Did she experience any of this symptoms before?
3. Is there any history of such black outs or rhythm disturbances of heart in the family?

Kindly get back with the answers.
Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.

Should we wait for her Dr appointment on tuedsay or take to a urgent care place now? She has never had any thing wrong, sick or been to the doctor for anything for awhile now.

Brief Answer:
You can wait if she is normally behaving now

Detailed Answer:
Hi...thanks for your trust in me.

2 options -

1. If her behaviour is normal - you can wait till Tuesday, but when you go there you need to discuss with the doctor about the possibilities I put forth.

2. If at any point of time before Tuesday's appointment, she get that sort of episode again - I suggest you take her to emergency room again.

I wish your kid a speedy recovery. If you need any future medical consultation and suggestions, I will be glad to help. You can approach me at the following link. Please find the link below.

3 days ago I had heat rise from the neck to the head and numbness on my left side of the face and arm. I went to the hospital and after a few tests, the doctors concluded that I had a TIA. After coming home from the hospital, I'm still getting some numbness and tiggling in my face and arms. Is this normal to happen after a TIA?

I have suddenly noticed a taste of blood in my mouth and now am having stabbing pain in the right side of my head/temple area. I m a little worried because once when I was younger I had the same thing and then developed numbness on one side of my body with vision impairment along with not being able to understand the words that people were saying to me. I was told later that I may have had a mini-stroke. I am 40 years old and have been having a lot of stress lately. I don t want to suddenly have a stroke like my great-grandmother.

Very infrequently I get a momentary (no more than a second or two) sudden loss of balance and equilibrium. I do not lose consciousness. If they attached me to a monitor to measure brain waves they may have to wait weeks for it to recur. Is this something i should be worried about? Is it a mini stroke?
