Fainting in teenage girls

Common Questions and Answers about Fainting in teenage girls


Losartan is supposed to increase exercise tolerance in adults, but Sian is young, and young girls her age are surprisingly prone to fainting, for some reason. Losartan might perhaps increase the tendency. However, I would suggest that at this point, another visit with the doctor is indicated to discuss the new symptoms.
however, once, about 10 years ago, I passed out face first in the bathroom and woke up later. Then, just two days ago, another episode and fainting spell. Unfortunately, I went head first and split open my nose, and now have a puffy lip and somewhat of black eyes. But, I do find that it may be after a stressful event and I was probably constipated and finally relaxed and/or I have eaten some rich foods. My husband suggested to take deep breaths more, and not hold my breath.
I say this because I know my daughter would begin to breathe very shallowly when she was in crowds in an effort to fade into the background. Teenage years are tough to deal with for everybody and breath holding occurs way more often than people realize. So.... just remember to breathe....
brother's funeral was yesterday -I made a mistake with my confusion when I incorrectly mentioned he was 47 in my post yesterday-he was only 42. My mom is in the hospital in very critical condition-blood disorder b/c of wrong meds from last week and combined with still undiagnosed illness-not able to swallow, loss of speech, breathing difficulties, fainting and on and on. She's paraplegic with TBI stemming from an injury when she was hit by a drunken driver. My poor dad is losing it.
in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Thanks Laur!! And that's great about your period!!! I plan to have my period this week one way or another!!! Once i get blood results back, which i'm almost possitive will be negative for pregnancy, I'm filling my prescription and taking those pills to bring down my period. I can't take it anymore ;p Thanks for the advice though. I will def look up that Amenoreah thing.
About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Strangely enough, fainting is in fact common in kids, and is generally considered benign by the medical community--except when it occurs in an exercise setting, which is what is going on with your daughter. When that happens, a tilt-table test is indicated, at the very least. Here's more on that: http://www.dukehealth.org/health_library/advice_from_doctors/your_childs_health/fainting But fainting while swimming is a special case.
I don't completely understand how that could be NCS because I thought by definition the faintness/fainting was from blood pooling in your legs, yet how could that happen when she is horizontal in the water and her blood is pumping vigorously from exercise? Thanks.
But that's not the most alarming part of Tramadol in my case. In my case the antidepressant that they tacked on to the cocktail is the thing that causes all the rough psychological and mental symptoms. It's a Two Fer One! I've been feeling like I was going crazy for a long time. And in addition to that; the scary suicidal ideation. The suicidal ideation vanished and returns ONLY if I get a flare up of withdrawal symptoms. That happens if I get over stressed.
My hands and feet are almost always cold (in fact, they are right now), and I fall in and out of relatively mild depression. I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common. I'm still looking for ways to lessen the intensity of these symptoms, but for me I've found that maintaining physical activity helps, as well as not oversleeping, or overeating.
I drank and used my whole teenage years. Was sent away to a crisis unit, turned 16 in there. I then was placed in a group home for 9 months. I was married at 18 and by 21 i had 2 babies. I took a brief break while pregnant and started drinking the minute i was done nursing. I took pills and drank the next 20 yrs away. Lost custody of my daughter when she was 13 as she got smarter quicker than i did. By this time i had been married 2 times.
I think this will be helpful to her in the short term, but maybe not in the long term. I am an adult suffering with depression, and as I child I hated school, I was so scared of all the people, I would never talk to anyone all day, in breaks I would stand against a brick wall terrified, and nobody ever got me help.
Tannins are not only found in coffee and soda, but in chocolate and red wine as well. Adverse reactions to herbicides and pesticides used to grow coffee beans is a much more common culprit of adverse reactions. Keeping a diary of food consumed, physical and mental feelings each day, and physical activity will aid in discovering specific reasons for allergic reactions. Caffeine allergy symptoms can be as subtle as tingling in the mouth, itchy skin, and minor swelling of the throat.
Rather, you can do all that, you must stay healthy, don't eat junk food alot, maybe once every two weeks, eat well, go to the gym, proteins, so you would stay in shape. All of these little times you smoke, the other days you should go out with the girls, go to parties have fun, so you're not smoking **** everyday. :) Have fun Tyler, and tell me how high you were when you smoked the weed! :) mohamed.hesham.
You and I sound almost exactly the same. I feel dizzy ALOT and I am afraid to be alone or go to a store, When I get in a store I get dizzy, hot and I can feel my heart racing in my chest. I too have had all the various workups for my health and am otherwise fine. I took xanax, and the first pill worked fine then after that they didn't work anymore Now i've started prozac and I feel even worse, everytime I stand up I get the feeling im going to black out. Hopefully this will go away soon.
Last year I got married, bought a house, and became a step mom all within two months! Guess when all of my symptoms started, May, the wedding was in June, house purchase in April, oh and I turned 30 in April too. Maybe all of this was too much for me at once, but it was kind of delayed symptoms if that makes sense? I would love to take the effexor and be done with it, but something inside of me is saying to try the natural herbal way first.
I was on them for 6 years or so and have been off them for about 3 months. I have definitely noticed a change in my libido since I stopped...for the better:) I still have anxiety issues, but I know that it is still early and takes time for hormones to readjust. If you can use alternate forms of birth control I would try stopping and see what happens. My period has been on time since I stopped and they have been fairly short and light.

Yes I have a family, a hubby and three teenage girls who help a lot! They are my taxi now. My husband is tired of me being sick just as much as I am. He worries about me all the time. I don't understand how some of us get all these debilitating symptoms and most women only get hot flashes?! We are never told about all 35 symtoms only two hot flases and mood swings. I wish that's all I had! My dizziness is worse with a tight head too. My neck and shoulders are soooo tight all the time too.
For almost 1 year now I have had horrible muscle spasms in my abs when I do sit ups. I do a lot of running and other exercise and my abs never tighten up like that any other time other than doing sit ups. Everytime I try to do sit ups I can get through about 10 then the upper right abdominal area completely tightens and feels like a really really bad charlie horse. I'm just looking for any advice or experience with this that anyone can give me.
) Since then, I had an US in Feb on the right breast for 4 cysts (no follow up needed at this time) and a mammo on the left side in May for a new lump (cyst). Now in July, had my yearly mammo for which I got the call back for spot compression. I go in on the 10th. I'm doing fine mentally...just wish I didn't continue needing screenings. In march I also had a biopsy of the lining of my uterus (benign). I have conflicting feelings about screening...
for the past year my periods have been ridiculously heavy, often bleeding through tampon, pad and clothing in under two hours. i also have a watery discharge during my period. it is clear and odorless. even if there is very little blood on my tampon, it soaks through and leaks through my pad and clothing as well. recently, i have been having less liquid blood and more clots, with a lot of the watery discharge. i have three solid days of going through both a tampon and pad within an hour.
This isn't really a question, it's more or less a walkthrough of what I am going through with anxiety problems and alcoholism in hopes that it might help someone out there. Had I read online about how common anxiety attacks after a night of drinking are, maybe I could have started my road to recovery sooner, and maybe some of you can.
Hello, I'm 17 years of age and recently (2 months ago) had an accident that has resulted in the loss of my sense of smell and taste. I was at a lake, swinging on a rope into the water but lost my grip and wnet head first down a cliff of rocks and roots. I landed in the water but had hit the back of my head (near the crown, at the top) splitting my head open and fracturing my skull (3-4 inches).
