Fainting and losing bladder control

Common Questions and Answers about Fainting and losing bladder control


This last episode, I lost control of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bladder</span>, although this was the first time. These attacks happen at completely different places <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> times, although I think that it's possible that consuming alcohol COULD be a factor that may bring the attacks on, however it is important to me to emphasize that even though 5 out of 7 of these attacks happened when I was consuming alcohol, it was no more than one or two drinks and not nearly enough for me to feel even slightly intoxicated.
This isn't a cure for the cause of what's making all this happen, but my belief is that i have some sort of internal blockage again that causes the cramps, and because of the fizzyness of the japps that its forcing the food past this blockage and relieving me of the terrible pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> stopping me from fainting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> smashing my head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> face to pieces. I really hope this can bring relief to people suffering as i know how bad these episodes make you feel, not only physically but mentally.
Hello - fainting on the plane just happened to me yesterday for the 3rd time. I fly very frequently and I am a 28 year old female. In all three cases, the only commonality I can find is the fact that I am asleep. I wake up and immediately feel extremely hot (drenched in sweat), very nauseous and scared. I tried to calm myself down yesterday but it did not work and I knew I was going to faint so I alerted my husband and that's the last thing I remember.
I'm hoping as some people have stated, that on my next cycle my body will become use to the pills, and the weight will go away, if not I'm going to look into another pill and just take the active pills for 3 wks. I'm taking seasonique to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> my moodiness, outbursts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> it has helped TREMENDOUSLY!! In fact two weeks before yesterday, I noticed myself becoming moody and definately don't miss that every month. I'll see how long my period goes.
They also didn't think that it was gallbladder because not only was I experiencing abdominal pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> digestion issues, but I also had severe memory problems, extreme fatigue, fainting spells, cold intolerance, and large weight fluctuations. Finally I got a diagnosis and surgery scheduled for the gallbladder...but now I am told I have hypothyroidism and should start medication within the next week along with diet changes and increasing my amount of exercise. Is this normal?
I suddenly found myself coming round on the floor and the reason I knew it was not a simple faint is as I said before I am quite prone to fainting anyway. This was very different <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> scared me as I drifted in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> out of consciousness as I tried to awaken. My eyes were seen to roll, although I had no jerking and no incontinence and the dizziness that followed lasted for over 24 hours. I was also utterly exhausted which has not happened with a faint.
went back to the 25mg twice daily (which worked just fine as preventative) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> taste came back. Side benefit was losing around 20lbs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> keeping it off easily - after taking it about 2 years, had extreme hair breakage and loss, so I quit 'cold turkey' after reading about hair loss on the web. Hair is finally getting back to where it was before, after treating it very, very kindly i.e. no perms, no heat, etc.
I am a 44 year old female and I think I have had them all my life at times, but they got a lot worse about 11 years ago when my kids were small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> I was under a lot of stress. I have them mostly under <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> I can tell you what I recommend: 1. See your doctor first and have all the heart tests done to see if there is something else wrong with your heart. 2. if he/she recommends a beta blocker, TAKE it.
taking bpep (hydorochloric acid) to help break the protein down. Have been able to reduce the bloating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> fainting feeling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> got back a lot of energy & can do a lot more activity. I didn't realise that I was focusing too much on gluten free & energy food to boost me and was adding to the weight/energy problem. Nutritionist says body won't release its storages if not eating enough protein. it seems to be helping a lot.
I've always hated taking the pill (it gives me morning sickness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> other side effects) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> I've tried a bunch of other birth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> options <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> this is by far the best thing I've ever tried. Before having my son, I used to get really bad menstrual cramps and long, heavy periods. Since getting the Merina I now get very light periods (I only have to wear panty liners for a few days) and just a little bit of cramping. I haven’t had any weird side effects like weight gain or hair loss.
My cough is around 12 - 16 coughing fits a day which leave me exhausted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> close to fainting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> as I said with a retention issue the continence crisis is escalating, I cannot speak at all at this time and it can last several minutes. The joke is that I am a lecturer at a university in the UK, as if MS wasn't enough - how do I start lectures next week eh?
One night i had extreme pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> the next morning i went to urinate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> what i assumed was a blood clot the size of my fist(it was actuall the sac)came out. Afterwards I was fine.
Based on the tests I've had so far, would you say the fear that I am actually dying is irrational? I live at home, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> discussed this with my father who says I'm just spiraling out of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span>, and the depression and anxiety is making my symptoms (most likely) worse. I read on the net that MRI is a great tool for evaluating muscle tissue inflammation, and is often used by neuros to decide what regions to peform a muscle biospy on (if they feel it's warranted).
The right side of your rib cage pain sounds like gall <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bladder</span> to me. I had mine out not long ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> the problem with stones felt that way.
your brain is the most powerful thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> you have to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> your body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> not let your brain take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> of you it will affect you physically, emotionally, any way u can think and you just have to take a breath and tell yourself this is the anxiety and im not gonna let it take over my life. The worst possible thing that could happen is you could die but your not sooo its anxiety.
what was really crazy and confusing was that this would also send my treated underactive thyroid out of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> my usual symptoms of my thyroid medication needing to be adjusted were really intensified (dizziness, "hypoglycemia"). I went to no less than eight doctors (multiple GP's, Ears/Nose/Throat + an ear specialist, Endocrinologist, multiple Rheumatologists - some are not nice at all, Neurologist, etc.
I do have endometriosis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> PCOS or so they tell me. I have stopped birth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> gained a lot of weight which is how they determined the PCOS. My husband and I are trying to have a baby and have not been successful, just more bad news. I have had the laparoscopy to remove a cyst on my fallopian tube and they removed the endometriosis and I still have paid regularly. No baby yet but its definitely a good idea to have the lap done ASAP.
PSA, blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> urine cultures, prosthate exploration <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bladder</span> x-rays <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> ultrasound. Everything was normal. Finally the explanation I got was that there was a tissue problem somewhere in the ducts running from the sperm vesicles to the penis, and in the same way some people are prone to nosebleedings, it might be the same with me and my seminal ducts.
I had a little boy in October 07 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> i started birth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> in early novenber. i got off birth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> at the end of january anf my last period was feb 5th through feb11th. i have not had a period since and eventhough ive taken a million home preg tests and had a blood test come back negative i still have ALL the symptoms! heart burn...bloating...headaches...backaches...peeing constantly...EVERYTHING!!! i do not have insurance so its not like i can just go to my family doc...
But, once he wakes up he is fine. He has never ever bit his tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> he has never ever lost <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> of his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bladder</span>. We went today to see his regular doctor and I talked to him some more about it. He said, "he isn't having a true seizure." Basically he explained to me about how a person who has a true seizure sleeps for hours on end. He doesn't do that. Now they are going to add Sudafed along with his beta blockers. We are going to try that for a month. then go from there.
I am at my wits end I cant live like this I dont know what to do or how to get control of my body and mind back.
I have access to the results but I think they are negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> I am going crazy. I passed out the other night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> loss <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bladder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span>, called the office and the office said they would leave a note for my doctor for when he returns. I know my dr. wanted to do the lp before he left in case in needed steroids while he was out but it seems like no one else will talk to me there. I did notice that I have 1 o-band in csf but also 1 0-band in serum so does that make it ok?
I quickly realized that I was not going to rely on drugs to fix this problem and weened my way off of the drugs after only 3 weeks. I battled with my panic attacks for over 6 months, until I could <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> was prepared for them when they hit me full force. Still it was a constant effort. then I came down with a sinus infection that lead to an inner ear infection. I was constantly dizzy, spaced out, ear congestion and uncomfortable sensation.
I wish all of you luck; I know what it's like to feel out of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> frustrated when doctors don't have the answers. Be sure to post if you do figure out what's wrong! These forums have been of great comfort to me to see I'm not alone.
• Most episodes occur while standing, occasionally sitting and almost never lying down • Patients often describe feeling very warm and sweaty before blacking out • Nausea and rarely vomiting can precede episodes • Observers often describe the patients as pale (“white as a sheet”) • Patients are usually unresponsive (“out”) for less than a minute • Patients may have some twitching while unresponsive, but seldom shake violently, bite their tongue or lose control of bowel and bladder function.
I've been experiencing some odd symptoms over the past few years and they have since gotten worse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> now concerning to me. My vision is constanly bothering me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> I have a hard time focusing on words when reading. In the past I've had spells of blurred vision followed by a lathargic state and then a pounding headache. This headache sometimes lasted for more than 24 hours. About 3 years ago, I had an MRI done and all came back clear.
Mind you, some people do lose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bladder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>control</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> may twitch a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> that is why they can easily be confused with epilepsy. often reflex anoxic seizures aren't treated because they expect that children will just grow out of it. In my sister's and obviously yours, that hasn't been the case. My sister's tended to be brought on, in my opinion, by stress. She could go for years without one and in actual fact, I don't remember seeing her have one later in life.
Now it is 2003 having more painful periods, neck stiffness and pain, attacks of pain in-between shoulder blades once in a while, headaches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> an increase in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bladder</span> infections <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> vaginal yeast infections. No explanation from doctors. In Sept. 2007 started having really bad acid reflux. Jan 2008 had a severe pain attack that I later found out was biliary colic. Had my gall bladder checked through ultrasound and told it was normal, no stones.
it causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> out completely for 10 to 15 seconds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
