I have been having auras all day on and off as well as being very dizzy and nauseous. Could this just be a partial seizure? I'm not sure if I should go to the ER or wait until I can call doctor Monday.
Suggest: Not clear to me what symptoms you experience beyond being dizzy and nauseated, BUT an ER visit is likely to be disappointing based on your issues. Rather, telephone your doctor today, discuss what is occurring and decide the next step. Cannot diagnose partial seizures based on information provided. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

But i assume you have a follow-up appointment to check on this in the next few days, right? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
