I’m still in shock of what happened yesterday, the last time i fainted was 10 years ago. We went to dinner together and after the first course i felt nauseaous and dizzy, i told FI and than in blacked out. When i woke up FI was screaming at me with a doctor that was present who told us to go to the E&A because i was gone 3+ minutes. This afternoom i’m in for an ECG scan. Any bees have this happen to them?

I’m so sorry this happened I hope you feel better soon! I have passed out a few times but it was due to painful periods and the once when I got my first tattoo and it really is scary, and I always throw up when I wake up after too.
Do you have any clue why it happened? I was in a restaurant once and I nearly fainted becasue of the heat in there I had to go out and get a some fresh air, was it hot?

My friend used to randomly faint for awhile, sometimes with vomit as well, once on a bus to work (and some b*tch actually yelled at the driver for taking my friend to the hospital and making her late to work, people have such nice hearts *sarcasm*). For her it turned out to be some weird salt deficiency or something…

That is concerning! Hopefully it was just a combination of a few factors and it’s nothing serious!

Oh gosh, how scary! I’m so sorry that happened to you!
I’ve never fainted, but I am prone to panic attacks and I often feel like I’m going to pass out. Do you struggle with anxiety issues? I don’t know if that is relevant, though, because I’ve never actually passed out.
Just the same, I hope they are able to pinpoint a reason and fix it!

Yes. I have what’s called Vasovagal Syncope. Just got diagnosed because I passed out for no apparant reason. I usually pass out from certain things, but because this wasn’t any of them, I had gotten a TON of tests done.
Stress can bring on a fainting spell. Do you feel stressed or anxious lately? If it keeps happening, doctors may send you for a tilt-table test. That will determine if you have what I have.

i thought about maybe being stressed or having anxiety but apparently anxiety makes you feel like passing out but it never happens because your heart rate goed up and in order to pass out your heart rate is slower.
I’ve heart about these tables but because i never faint normally they didnt put me on a tilt table. I just had my blood taken and they made an ECG of my heart, the results should be in friday, hopefully theres nothing wrong.
