My wife very healthy otherwise started to suffer from dizziness followed by deep sleep approx 5 min afer the dizziness started.The dizziness is close to a black out as she sais when it start to come on people
's voices seems far of and her vision is poor
I had her at the DR who diagnosed slight low blood pressure and gave her some pills (efortill perlongets to use twice per day) 3 days After we have visited the Dr she suffered this dizziness followed by deep sleep for 1 to 2 hrs whilst I mointor her see if she is still ok when I wake her during these times she is slightly dis-orientated and her eyes are very red like when you wake some one from a deep sleep.
Is this possibly a degree of epilepsy?

Popeye, it might be a form of epilepsy, narcolepsy, low blood sugar, etc. the best would be to have her see a specialist physician and get it sorted out. Good luck.
