Hi, I am a episonic cluster headaches sufferer for the past 10 years (32 now) but I have had a 2 year gap until now, im currently in my 4th week, but something strange happened again that happened 4 years ago, I was at work and I became totally blank, staring into space, I was pale in my face, shaking, tears in my eyes and totally weak all over resulting in my legs to give way and couldn't find the energy to even talk and I could really feel my heart beating. An ambulance was called but by the time I came to hospital I was feeling a bit better, BUT the headache started an hour AFTER this but was mild as I was on oxygen. They did a blood test and blood presure test and a ECG everything was ok, the presure was a bit low as I work out.
Can anyone explain why I nearly colapsed? is it just the force of this illness? or is it a side effect of imigran -palpitations? or did this lead to some kind of panic disorder? ( I have no history of depression or panic disorder)
With cluster headaches its sometimes hard to get answers as its fairly rare, so I have to surf around a bit to get answers unless someone here can help!?
