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
