I sometimes get this when i am very tired. Always have.
But I have had it constantly for the last four days.
Yes I am very tired but it is all day.

Any ideas before DH makes me go to the Doctor.

I had it continuously for six weeks once. Had a banana and a packet of crisps and it went. Not very scientific but it worked for me. grin

Apparently this is caused by stress/anxiety. Not serious.

I had it for months when my marriage broke up. It went away when I became less stressed.

I have had it too - I became obsessed watching it in mirror. I think in my case I was very run down.

It's school holidays.

I have had it today, but then have been up since 3am so am not surprised.

Give yourself an early night and if it doesn't stop after a long sleep go to the docs then.

thanks all
I think you are right that I am just tired. Plus I have had a migraine already this am and I realised yesterday how down/depressed I am too.
Just run down I think.
Thanks again
