It sounds like migraines or hypoglycemia to me(I get both).
migraines can be atypical(as mine are). Mine are usually just a silver flashing thing in my vision. I don't always get the headache. The vision thing lasts an hour.
My worst hypoglycemia attack was when I was pg with my middle dd. It started with dizziness(and numbness), my upper body wanted to go 1 way & my lower body wanted to go another way. It took me 10 minutes to walk 10 feet because i had to keep grabbing things. I laid down & the room spun. That lasted an hour, then I sat up & was instantly nauseated. It was bad enough I thought I was going to throw up. That lasted an hour. Then the headache came & that lasted an hour. While I was feeling nauseas I called the dr's office & they wanted me to come in asap but I couldn't until that afternoon because I was babysitting. When I went in my dr said he didn't think it was a stroke because I'd been in the clinic an hour before it started for a prenatal & my bp was fine.
I've had many less severe attacks since that are usually just nausea & dizziness that leads to a fuzzy head, sweating, feeling like a loss of control of my limbs if I don't get my blood sugar up.
