several years ago while standing in my kitchen i experienced a sudden rush of hot/cold sensation running from the top of my head to my pelvis, heart rate was very fast, felt like i was in a tunnel tingles all down my arms . i called my dr. and they told me to go to e.r. once there i was put on a heart monitor,chest xrays,cat scan of my head,blood work. all the things they do to see if you are having a heart attack. my blood pressure was high but everything else was ok. i seen a cardio dr the next day immediatly put me on blood pressure meds and during several months had every heart test they do! even a heart cath all which were great! but was still having these spells that would last for hours.seen a neurologist and he put me on neurontin 100mg 3x a day which have helped alot. but on occasion i still have these spells that wake me out of a dead sleep. starts at my head and rushes in to my pelvis causing me to have to urinate right away. dr. has chalked all this up to menopause....can it be?
