Yikes that is so scary! I fainted once – it was because I hadn’t eaten enough and was dehydrated. Sometimes if I dont eat enough at night or if I’m hungry when I go to bed I will be faint and nauseous in the morning.

Also, a few months ago I was feeling faint all the time and i went to the doctor, turns out I had a vitamin D deficiency. Maybe ask about that?

I can’t think of any other questions (sorry!) but just wanted to say hope everything goes well and that things are okay with you.

I’m not sure what you should ask your doctor, but please do be honest with them and give them all the details of what is happening before, during, and after these episodes.

Glad to hear you’re going to see your doc!

I hope you figure out what is causing the problem, I know it can be scary. Is it possible you have low blood pressure? That’s my problem. I put my mother in charge of making sure I eat a lot of salt before my walk down the aisle, fainting is not an option!

Early this year, I didn’t faint but I did collapse with no one at home.  FI drove all the way back from work to take me to the hospital.  They couldn’t find anything wrong with me, but concluded it must’ve been low blood pressure from me not eating properly.

I was working three jobs, and you need to watch your diet.  Sometimes it’s not just hungry faint, but nutritional faint. HTH|

I had some ‘incidents’ at the gym earlier this year and went through a phase of feeling really off. Turns out it was my iron – not that I wasn’t eating enough of it, but that my body wasn’t absorbing it. So now I have to take some iron supplements with vitamin C to ensure my body gets enough and I have felt heaps better since!

I can faint on a dime…and I hate it. I fainted in college once in the health center and hit my head so hard on the wall that there is still a dent.

Fiance fainted in the shower once b/c it was too hot. Our shower is tiny. He is over 6′ ft tall. Didn’t make for a great morning.

Slam a shot of juice, gatorade, or something sweet upon waking.

@Eva Peron:

I agree. I struggle with hypoglycemia (but not a diabetic) and I sometimes have rough mornings. I have actually only passed out twice and it was bc my sugar was too low. Darling Husband passed out once in the shower but that’s bc he had the flu, a temp of 103 but had cold chills so he thought a very hot shower would work. Wrong! Your body can’t handle all that heat so it shuts down. This was at 3 am needless to say and I woke up to a large crash and freaked the eff out. If I was awake he would have never been allowed to do that!!
