Yikes – I passed out while deplaning an airplane and my FI caught me on the way down. It was scary, and surprising to hear that he apparently cursed out an entire plane and tried to swing me over his shoulder until a doctor told him to put me down. I woke up in the aisle with my FI cradling my head. The nausea typically proceeds the passing out for me – so hopefully it is nothing. Hopefully just dehydration.I am wishing you the best!

Wow, thats scary.  I’ve never actually fainted like that, but I’ve blacked out for a few seconds and was able to stumble to a seat before falling over.  I was in the shower also when I started to feel it coming on.  It was after a strenuous swim and before I’d eaten anything that day , so I think I just over excerted myself that day.  Have you been eating well and drinking water?

@soontobehisbride:  Are you pregnant? Are you diabetic? Have you been eating right lately? Getting enough sleep? Sometimes when I get too hot I feel like I am going to pass out. Were you taking an extremely hot shower?

I’ve done that twice. Once while in class, once while working out. It’s scary but usually not too dangerous unless you’re falling over and hitting your head. I also pass out every single time I give blood, which is annoying.

Could be low blood pressure, Hot showers or heat in general lowers blood pressure. Thats why i cant do hot tubs :/

@soontobehisbride:  Definitely get checked out by a doctor. I hope you’re feeling better and that there is not a cardiac cause behind the syncope!

@znowbird22:  +1, I completely forgot that.

 

@soontobehisbride:  Yeah, it is a scary thing. Be careful, don’t want to do that when you are home alone.

I’m sorry! I faint quite a bit, especially when I’m stressed out.  But as others have said low blood pressure, or sometimes hormones arround your time of the month.  I’m also anemic so maybe you have low iron levels.  Most of the time it’s nothing serious.  At least you were home with your FI.  I fainted at Sams club once….it was embarrassing! I do not enjoy attention from strangers.

I have had this happen to me too, though I didn’t actually faint. I have fainted before so i knew the feeling and got out right away, but I felt crappy the rest of the day. Hope you’re feeling better!

@soontobehisbride:  I’m with ya! I fainted on Weds and went to the ER, because I was having some other symptoms. This happens to me every few years, and generally, all of my bloodwork and urinalysis comes back normal. The only explanation I’ve received that has been somewhat helpful is that my reaction is called vasovagal syncope. My triggers are needles, extreme temperatures, and sickness.

I’ve came close to fainting in hot showers.  Your blood vessels dilate and you become dizzy and get low blood pressure.  next time instead of turning it off, turn it colder (not too cold) it’ll bring it back up. I also drink water before I take showers too.
