@Giraffes:  You could have low blood pressure..  I have a history of fainting, mostly when I get blood drawn/injections, and my BP runs very low normally anyway.   Needles apparently make it drop like a stone!

Hopefully you’ll check out okay at the doc.  That would be worrisome indeed if it’s happening frequently.

I had this problem when I was in high school and college and I never could find out what was causing it.  I had blood sugar checked right afterward and had to wear a holster monitor for a week but nothing was ever found.  I make sure to eat well, drink enough and get up slowly.  Sorry for not having an answer!

Are you otherwise feeling okay? Have you had blood tests done recently? I wonder if it could “just” be anemia or vasovagal syncope.

I get this sometimes when my B12 gets low. Do you take B12 vitamins? If not, you might want to talk to your doctor about it. Did you have any pain or nausea with the fainting?

Sounds like it could be anemia to me.

@Giraffes:  I would say anemia/B12 are likely culprits. Definitely check it out. Good luck!
