The list is endless: This could be so many things: seizure, migraine, cataplexy (related to narcolepsy) are just a few. The next best step is to follow through with recommended testing.

Long list possible: Lots of possibilities including infection and Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis (MS), and essential tremor have to be considered. IT sounds like your Spine workup is in progress and should continue.This might include extensive labs, lumbar puncture and advanced PET scanning if dictated. Cardiology, Neurology and Endocrinology evaluations are recommended ie checking Carotids, an ECHO and EEG testing
