Blackouts

Hi

does anybody else get blackouts ? When I come round I am paralysed the longest time being 2 hrs. I had the first one in October last year and had about 5 episodes in total so far. I have been to see a neurologist who thinks it could be aura migraine. But I'm not totally convinced as I can almost feel my body go into shut down. And when I'm awake and can't move it feels like my limbs have lead weights on them.

Thanks

I get 'shut downs for a few hours but don't black out. It doesn't sound like FM, don't know if it is migraine or not :(

Have they done a Holter Monitor on you? Fibro is associated with Dysfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System, which controls blood pressure and pulse among many other things.

Well I say blackouts cos I don't know how else to dircribe it. I don't collapse on the floor or anything I can just feel my body go to sleep. Is that what happens to you ?
