When I was a little girl and my mom would do my hair in the bathroom I would get this weird light-headedness and have to go lay down.  Let me just also say I have the thickest hair known to women (hence the reason it is always so short now) and it got very hot in the bathroom with my sister, me, and my mom in there together trying to blow dry this mane.  It happened fairly frequently but once I laid down for a bit, I was fine.  Well as I got older and was able to fix my own hair it wasn't too much of a problem. I actually would wake up at 5 AM in Middle School to shower and get my hair done without fighting over the bathroom and was able to not pass out due to heat exhaustion.  When I was in high school I passed out at TGI Fridays.  That's right. At the table. Knocked over my ice tea on the way to the table, which of course is where my hair landed.  As if passing out in front of your friends at TGI Fridays isn't embarrassing enough in high school, my parents made me come home so I could go to the ER.  After a cat scan, MRI, EEG, a visit to the neurologist, and a 3 hour glucose tolerance test...they found NOTHING.  So that was fun.  Anyway enough of the back story.  Ever since my little pass out episode, I have dizzy spells. They are completely unexpected and usually last only a few seconds. Lately my little dizzy spells have been not so little...
 I went to the doctor on Wednesday and now have to go back for an MRI.  Lovely, back to the rabbit hole. So I am telling this to everyone because I am curious. Anyone else have dizzy spells? Or am I just a total weirdo?  I feel that I will probably not get a response seeing as I am not sure anyone reads these, but just thought I would check.
