fainting

lately going out in the heat i find it hard to breathe and i get dizzy and almost feel like im going to pass out. This also happens when im taking a shower, i get real light headed and harder and harder to breathe.
try sitting down to get ready and avoid standing for long periods at a time. when you have dizzy spells try to put your hand between your knees, i know it's hard when pg. if your too far along to get your head down that far, try sitting on a chair and leaning towards your knees as far a possible (this was what my dr suggested and it helped me). good luck and i hope you are feeling better soon.

I have been having these dizzy spells, with sweaty palms and ears poping and ringing and on the verge of fainting until I get a cold towel and place on my had. I have been to the er twice for this. The first time they thought it was the antibiotic cipro for sinus infection. But it wasn't that because this time I wasn't taking anything. I feel dizzy and nausea all of the time. Dr did ct scan on my head, stomach and chest xray. Only said I had kidney stones. Please help.

I am an 23 year old, single, first time soon-to-be mommy from Arkansas. I suffer from PTSD amongst other things. My problem is: I keep passing out and having black-out spells when I lest expect it. I've been seen by too many doctors and ER staffs to not have any answers, whatsoever. One lady told me it might be coming from my disorder, but wasn't sure.
I haven't fainted at all, I wouldn't worry about it, stay very hydrated and sit down if you feel dizzy, keep snacks on you like peanut butter cups or crackers and if you feel dizzy drink some water, eat a cracker and sit down, you'll be fine! :) Most women don't faint while pregnant but if you do it's not a huge deal.
I have always been prone to fainting due to being anemic so easily.. When I got pregnant it got worse and I fainted more.. I started taking iron capsules and pre natals with iron..
I get the dizzy spells but thankfully haven't actually fainted yet. Was told to eat regular and take my time going between positions, jumping outta bed running to the loo is something I have to watch wen im sleepy.
What normally happens is I will be doing some ordinary task either sitting down or standing up with no sudden movements and I will start to get very tired, then I will get hot, dizzy and I will go completely pale. Anyone who looks at me in this state can tell there is something seriously wrong. If I am not able to "rest", I will faint. Usually, I will only faint if I am standing up, but it has happened once when I was sitting down. It has happened both before and after eating.
I ate cereal bars and dried fruit all day Thursday and Friday and was fine, no fainting so it must have been low blood sugar. Also I have noticed I have not gained any weight in the last week so my calorie intake is down.
I have ADHd, Bipolar, Depression, PTSD, OCD,anxiety and panic disorder and Social anxiety disorder. I also get frequent dizzy and fainting spells, and have had problems managing my sugar and salt intake for a while.It's like my body is use to a certain level of sugar, and when it goes too long without that amount, my body crashes. I am 6 months pregnant, and this is my second child. I had 9 miscarriages before I was able to hold my first daughter.
It's your blood pressure! When pregnant your blood pressure is lowered which can make you feel dizzy and faint! Try stand up slowly etc and make sure you drink lots an keep blood sugar up!

In these spells, my knees would just suddenly give out and there was nothing I could do. Usually, my knees would give out for a moment, I would slump in a desk, or bump in to a wall, nothing really bad. I would fall a lot on the steps. My last really bad spill was when I was in 7th grade, my knees went out from under me at school on our big staircase and I fell down 10 steps, popping my knee out of place and injuring my hip. I was in physical therapy for a few months afterwards.
it was hot and I walked to her window, and suddenly, I fell down into the chair just behind me, and I don't remember what happened, although I do remember being vaguely aware of something happening. When I opened my eyes, I was in the chair, and my sister was standing there, looking at me with a surprised and shocked expression. She explained to me what she just saw (me shaking violently) and I told her I didn't remember what happened.
But ever since this incident she has continued to have fainting spells regularly. Since two weeks ago the fainting became frequent and even five days in a row. She has even passed out on the street!!! She was hospitalised for 4 days to run tests. The doctors did a full blood count, MRI, EEG and cardiac check and everything came back ok.
For the past three years I have been to two family doctors, two neurologists and three cardiologists because I have fainting spells on average every 4-6 days. From November 1998 when they started to January of 2001, they have maintained this "schedule"; however, on January 15th, 2001, I had a fainting spell and when I "woke up," I had lost feeling and function of both of my legs. This has continued with every blackout I have had since.
do you think there is any relation to this and me randomly getting a stuffy chest/dull chest pains and dizzy spells? i usually have no signs of my arrhythmia when this occurs but i USED to before i started taking my beta blocker, nadolol. i tried 40 mg but it was too harsh, so now i am on 30 mg a day. i will be seeing my ep hopefully next month depending on when i can reinstate my insurance.
A few weeks later I fainted suddenly in class. I was just standing there and started feeling hot, dizzy and lightheaded. I woke up on the floor. My hands were tingling and my ears were ringing. After that my mom picked me up early and just took me home to rest. Then, just last Monday, I almost passed out in class again. I was sitting at my desk listening to the teacher when the nausea and other symptoms hit again.
