Black out when I laugh
llmichelle2001 posted:
For a while now I have been getting sharp stabbing headaches when I laugh hard accompanied with a feeling of dizziness. I have put them off thinking its no big deal because the headaches do not last long, but recently I have started to lose time when this happens,like blacking out. It is not a significant amount of time, only 10-15 seconds, but it has me concerned. This last Isolde lasted longer than ones before and left me feeling really out of it for a few minutes. I am overweight but have ever been diagnosed with high blood pressure or cholesterol. Also when I have these episodes my heart feelis like it is going to jump out of my chest. Are my symptoms normal? I can't get into a doctor for a week and a half and want to know if I should seek more immediate medical attention.
