What does your lightheadness feel like?
Posted 20 February 2006 - 09:19 AM
I feel like I've had a few drinks when I'm lightheaded...no spinning.
Just feel like I need to sit down, and when I do it usually goes away.
Unless I have eaten a meal....then I remain lightheaded unless I lay down.

I have tunnel vision and I can barely hear what people say. I can't focus or answer questions.

Mine tends to vary~ from the usual lightheadedness to the worst. Usually for me, I have a constant feeling of off balance along with a little dizziness. Kinda like I'm on a boat. It then goes to the not so pleasant can't hear anything, everything I say doesn't make sense, can't breathe, lost kinda feeling. Then I know it is time to get my butt down, or I'm going to be going down. I try not to let myself get this bad cause it takes so much outta me. I also notice trouble with my vision and numbness.

1) taking tooooo much benydryl only w/o the benydryl...feels like you are moving even after you stop moving.
2) being slightly drunk...but much less fun.
3) That I have rode my bike or run or excersized way too much...mind is shut down and in flat line mode feeling, head feels overly pressurized or something.
Or at least thats how I explain it. (-;

I have only felt nauseated once. But there's a particular feeling I get that is so hard to explain, even though I feel it in my head before anything else, when I know I've gone past the point of no return and I'm going to face plant. Even lying down isn't going to help, though I usually come around very quickly. morgan

Once things go totally dark, that's it, I have about a half a second to throw myself into a horizontal position before I totally lose consciousness.
When I am coming in and out of consciousness, I can sometimes hear what's going on around me, but cannot see anything and am unable to respond.

There are soo many different ways my lightheadedness feels...The first time I had this I lost all my vision and my body went numb with tachycardia. I was off balance and overall felt very weird. There are times where I lose my eye sight and body goes numb on one side.
One of the worst episodes was when I was in bank training in Oct. I was sitting down and my head started aching, very dizzy, nausea, off balance, and I felt like my head was a floating balloon! No matter how many times I get like that I always get very nervous.
