Avatar f tn The lightheadedness may happen if there is inadequate supply of oxygen to the brain. This can happen with cardiac disorders or lung disorders. In cardiac disorders there is inadequate pumping of blood and in lung disorders there is inadequate oxygenation. It could also be due peripheral arterial blood disorders.

Infectious disorders (tick diseases and others) can also cause disorientation as well as hypoglycemia, and many other diseases.

Avatar n tn Hello, A friend of mine (17 years old female, Caucasian/Hispanic) has been suffering from what APPEAR to be non-epileptic tonic-clonic seizures since May of 2008.

Avatar m tn 1 Interestingly, people with migraines are more susceptible to epilepsy, and they also suffer from other disorders of immunoexcitotoxicity, such as depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. In addition, the same drugs used for treating epilepsy also improve migraines. Yet they differ in that seizures are a spreading of cortical electrical activity while migraine is a spreading depression.
Avatar f tn They can be seen in peripheral neuropathies of diabetes, in hyperthyroidism, parasomnia, multiple sclerosis, TIAs or transient ischemic attacks or mini strokes, hypoglycemia, disorders of calcium metabolism, hyperparathyroidism etc. Certain epilepsies too could be the cause (abnormal EEG should be followed up). Abnormal EEG is seen in tumors of the brain, sleep disorders, epilepsies, inflammation of brain, migraines, head injury, alcohol abuse, attention problems etc.
