In the space between moments
Thanks for caring, Whtdove. I have been experiencing dizziness, headaches, and blackouts since November. I've gone through just about every test you can imagine (Hypoglacimia, MRI, EKG, etc.) and to no avail. Finally, I went to a Neurologist and I've been diagnosed with Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction. Which bascially means a few things.
1) When I move body positions, my blood pressure should compensate for it, but it does not. Instead, my heartrate goes up, which causes problems.
2) I breathe about twice the rate of an average person. Instead of breathing once every 6 seconds, I breathe once every 3. The shallow breaths and the frequency of those breaths creates a sort of slow motion hyperventilation. That brings about the dizziness also.
Both of these can mostly be prevented with concentrating on my breathing and exercising to help my blood pressure out. Stress also plays a large part, so until my stres levels decrease, this won't go away entirely. And it may return if I become really stressed again. So, it's kind of a lifelong thing to deal with. But nothing too serious anyway!
