Dizzy, Lethargic, Cannot Feel My Limbs, Vomiting

Dizzy, Lethargic, Cannot Feel My Limbs, Vomiting

In the last 3 weeks I have had 3 episodes of sudden dizziness, vomiting, lethargic, cannot move, body twitching. The day after I still feel tired, nauseas and slur words. After the 2nd time I went to ER. They treated me for hydration. 5 days later it happened again. I went right to bed. I was staggering around and could hardly move. I couldn’t even move my arm to wake my husband up. The next morning I told my husband it happened again. He wanted to take me to ER. I was still slurring my… read more

Hello! I'm so sorry that you are having such a difficult time! The struggle is definitely real and I will keep you in my prayers. I have experience some of symptoms you mentioned, the diagnoses suggested were a TIA (Mini Stroke); Doctors also asked if anyone had ever mentioned MS. I'm doing better, but have been diagnosed with MCI (Mild Neurocognitive Disorder) mixed possibly vascular, as a result of the TIA. I know it's frustrating and your world have been turned upside down. But I pray God will favor you doctors who are caring for loving and have knowledgeable spirit! Do all that you are able to do, and what ever you do, DON'T GIVE UP! Fight with all that have and believe that the sun is shinning bright even if the storm clouds are raging!

I was hospitalized for 3days last month for a T.I.A.(mini stroke) I hope your doctor takes that seriously because it is just that. I couldn't say the alphabet I couldn't talk without slurring nor could I smile. But the strange thing was all along my vital signs were fair. So please if it happens again go back to the ER and make them do their job. Hope you feel better.

I had something similar happen to me and now the left side of my body is delayed and much weaker. I was told it might have been due to a mini stroke. it started with fever, dizziness, and nausea. then came the slurred words and memory loss. Please speak to your rheumatologist asap because they are more educated in autoimmune diseases than family doctors. I hope this helps and I wish the best for you.

I have had bouts of nausea, vomiting, dizziness, cannot focus my eyes and I have to lie down and sleep. My head feels so funny and I got really off balance. But it has come and gone. Your episode lasted much longer than what happen to me.
