Mushroom pizza To start I’m not for sure it was the pizza. Here’s my story: I ate 3 pieces of mushroom pizza on Saturday afternoon, on Sunday I felt ok, on Monday morning when everything changed, I when I woke up and opened my eyes my vision was totally distorted and my head was swimming. My vision was like my eyes were rapidly moving back and forth. This went on for about 30 seconds. I was terrified. I thought this was a stroke or something worse. Once that stopped and I could see normal I took a deep breath, and tried to calm down. My head was still swimming, but not as bad. I had Monday off(president’s day 2020) and as soon as I could I went to the dr. Everything checked out fine, blood pressure, heart, ears, etc, plus I had blood work done. All normal. (At this point I did not even think about the this having anywhere to do with the pizza.) The dr did tell me if the eye movements happened again I should see my eye dr. My head continued to have that swimming feeling most of the day. Tuesday night every time I woke up the eye movements happened. At 11:00, 2:30, 4:00, 5:00, and 2 more times where I didn’t open my eyes, but I could feel it. Once that stopped I got up and the swimming feeling stayed with me off and on all day, but wasn’t as intense as Monday. By Tuesday afternoon I went to eye dr, and his summary was it was not my eyes at all, it was in my brain, and said to see a neurologist ASAP. On Tuesday night the swimming seemed to have considerably slowed down, and I was starting to feel normal again. Wednesday night I slept well, with no more eye movements, and I felt almost normal all day! I was so relieved, but I still was going to see a neurologist. I was feeling so good, that I ate 2 more pieces of the mushroom pizza, I froze the leftovers. On Thursday morning my symptoms started all over again! The morning eye movements, the swimming head, it all came back! That’s when I realized that both times I had eaten the pizza. And besides the pizza on Wednesday I had hardly eaten anything, my anxiety has been bad all week and I just wasn’t hungry. So besides the pizza, I had only eaten oatmeal, and some fruit, and crackers. So Friday I’m back to normal again! Two times I ate pizza, two incidents! I’m going to neurologist next Friday, and I’m hoping I have no more incidents, this is Saturday morning and I’m still feeling normal. Was it the Pizza?? Should I have it checked?? Can food do this to your brain, without any other typical food poisoning symptoms?? I want answers, this has been a scary week. BTW I am, and always have been a very healthy person. I’ve never been on any medication, no smoking, drinking, and I’m a 69 yr old female vegetarian.
