I had a dizzy spell yesterday. I lost peripheral vision for a short period and it was so bad that I was too scared to drive anywhere. I didn’t want to worry anyone so I told my family that I was going to call my best friend so that they wouldn’t bug me while they thought I was on the phone and I ended up staying in bed for several hours because of it. I actually fell down the stairs as I was heading to my room, which really scared me. My anxious mind wandered a lot of places and my rational mind told me I should just sleep it off.
I fell down the seedy dark corners of trying to diagnose myself using google and found nothing good.
The one good thing I did find is that you can get blurred peripheral vision from severe sinus pressure and head pressure. I’ve been battling a nasty sinus infection and, because if it, woke up with a pretty horrendous headache yesterday.
I’m chalking it up to that, for now.
It went away after I laid in the dark for a while.
I do not need to diagnose myself on google anymore. If anything else happens, a doctor can tell me what’s wrong with me.
