One week ago i felt sweaty and dizzy and once i lost my vision for a while i don't know for how long and i was shaking and all this i was conscious?

Could it be: Panic attack/anxiety? Could it be acephalgic migraine? I am quite certain it was not seizure. The best way is to see your doctor, they can start the process of working it up and perhaps send you to the specialist who deals with it so if it happens again you can deal with it better. At your age and being a female i don't suspect much of a heart or vascular cause although still possible. Good luck. ...Read more

Tunnel vision and shaking while conscious only lasted a few seconds then tingling in fingers. Could it be a seizure and how do you tell if it is?

Tunnel vision and shaking while conscious only lasted a few seconds then tingling in fingers. Could it be a seizure and how do you tell if it is?

Unlikely: In an otherwise healthy 19yo male, this is more often due to brief disruption of blood supply to the head (commonly after standing rapidly from a squatted position or similar change in posture). You are right to consider seizure, given the history of melanoma, but this does not happen to be consistent at all. Keep your doctor informed, but for now, be reassured. ...Read more

Neuro Consult ASAP: These symptoms may be caused by vestibular migraine and thus be treatable. Please see a neurologist ASAP to make sure they are not caused by something more serious. Oscillopsia is caused by cortical problems, loss of oculo-vestibular reflex, MS, all of the different causes of nystagmus, toxins, meds, strokes, structural neurological problems etc. Migraines are not high on the list. Do not wait. ...Read more

Low blood pressure: The symptoms you describe are most likely related to low blood pressure. You may have a syndrome called orthostatic hypotension or possibly neurocardiogenic syncope. They are diagnosed and treated differently, but both share the common symptoms you described. Taking your blood pressure lying down, then standing for one minute, than after standing for 5 minutes will help to determine the cause. ...Read more
