Fiance and I were both in the shower today. I started feeling hot so I turned the water down, started feeling dizzy and weak so I turned the water off…before I knew it Fiance was waking me up off the bathroom floor.
When I woke I first thought I was waking up from a nap but then I realized I was on the bathroom floor with my legs still in the shower and started to cry. It was so scary!!!
I layed down for a while then decided to eat. A little time after that I started feeling dizzy and nauseous and weak again I layed down right away and after some time it went away.
I called a nurse and we went over everything she advised to take it easy and go to the ER if it happens again, also to make a doctor appointment this week. I plan on doing do tomorrow.
I cut my ankle on the shower faucet, tore the towel rack down and my lower back feels pretty bruised 🙁
I have not done anything out of the ordinary so I have no idea where this came from!!!

Yikes – I passed out while deplaning an airplane and my Fiance 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 Fiance 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 :/

@MrsUPS: Not pregnat or diabetic.
I have been eating like I normally would but I have been drinking less water. The nurse also mentioned to drink plenty of water.
When I was younger I was taking a hot shower and I stayd in too long, started to not feel well. Ever since then my body knows when to be done with it but not today for some reason.
I feel a little better, I’m not the only one out there.

@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 Fiance. 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!

My Fiance says to me “You know how I know your feeling better?” “Because your doing laundry” lol…
Thanks all, I am feeling better, still lounging but I’m doing a little laundry and playing on my lap top. That ankle and back though, im going to feel that for a while.
@Minirayray: Oh wow, I couldn’t imagine being alone and in a public place!! 🙁

@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.
