Things are spinning here... literally.

I had a little fainting "incident" on Sunday. I thought I was ok, but I'm not. Everything was ok on Monday and then on Tuesday afternoon the spinning started. It feels almost like vertigo except that my hands and feet are tingly and I'm lightheaded too, not just spinning.

A friend drove me (and the kids) to the doctor yesterday. They did a quick EKG and checked my blood pressure. No answers. The doctor wants to have some blood work done but the computers were down and she couldn't put the order in so she asked me to come back. But I can't really drive...

Today I'm going to see if I can handle driving down the road. If not, I'll have a friend take me to the lab on Monday morning.

There's no obvious cause. I'm not dehydrated, I eat like a horse, and I don't have any ear pain or ringing in my ears. I'm feeling great, very healthy, just that I'm spinning. I actually think I'm getting used to it. I'm not even falling over when I walk anymore! And I can read, write, and take care of kids too. It's so strange.

Anybody have experience with anything like this? Maybe my brain is finally shutting down from all of the stress in my life? Just kidding, my brain is still functioning. For now.
