dizziness and dilated pupils

One night I stayed up all the way until the sun came up. All of a sudden I got dizzy. A year and a half later I am still getting dizzy every day. I only get dizzy as the sun starts to set. My pupils will dilate so big that you can't see my eye color. Everything starts echoing. Could this be neurological? My doctor says he thinks it is my allegies, but i've never had a problem with that, also he put me on allegry medication and there has been no change.

I don't see why anybody would associate your symptoms with allergy. I think it would be very wise for you to be seen by a neurologist for some controlled testing of your responses to lowered light levels. I really doubt that your having stayed up overnight has anything to do with the emergence of your symptoms, but yes, they do seem to be neurological in character. To be on the safe side, I would suggest that you talk to a qualified professional about being evaluated for seizure disorder and/or TIA. Go in Peace and Power, Red
