I was diagnosed with MVP 3 years ago at the age of 25. Tests were taken after a dizzy spell, which led to fuzzy images and muffled sounds and loss of balance at work one night. I work as a waitress and the stress level was high that night but felt energetic before the spell. During the last 3 years I have had one panic attack in the shower where I couldn't catch my breathe and recently another dizzy spell at the gym. This was intense. My symptoms consisted of dizziness, fading out where I felt I was in a dream state feeling as though I was "out" for awhile. In all reality, my friend told me it was more like 30 seconds. I felt sick to my stomach afterwards, my coloring in my face was greenish and my lips were white. My tongue tingled and my entire body felt shaky. It is now 3 days later and I still don't feel 100%. I go to the doctors in less than a week where I will get tests done. Epilepsy is in my family and I am afraid that what I experienced was a "petty" seizure. Have any of you reading this ever had such an episode with MVP? Please let me know. Thanks for your time.
