lexi - 21 - female - west virginia From about 17 I have been having fainting spells. the first few times were few and far between. It is always the same though. It starts with a funny feeling, a slight dissociation. Imagine looking at trees and they're too-bright, too wrong, strange, unrecognizable. It comes up like a wave from my feet to my head and I know I'm about to faint. At this point I usually have about 30 seconds to preferably lie down, but sitting helps.
I mentioned to the doctor I had two fainting spells, first was November second was in January. No cause has been found. Could there be a connection? Also, explain colon inflammation please. Is that caused by the colitis? Thank you.
I am 25 years old and female. Recently I experienced a fainting spell, I have never fainted before. In the last 4 months or so I had shortness of breath while was not doing any activities, like sitting in the kitchen talking with my mom, or having a walk, I was not walking quick at all... or while watching TV. I had ploblems with my heart rhythm before, EKG was normal, and after pushing a little they hooked me up in a 24 hour EKG (in Hungary/Europe).
my symptoms are CONSTANT fast irregular heartbeat, weak and fading heartbeats when i check on my hand pulse, fainting spells most of the time, a STRANGE vibrating feeling on my left chest, uncontrollable heartbeats, vertigo, exercise intolerance, a sudden body weakness. my questions are: - what could be happening with me? - is it possible for me to get pregnant knowing my situation? - could the EKG test have gone wrong? ??

I am a healthy 19 year old female and for the last couple months I get random "spells" I start to feel really weak and then get really light headed and everything turns black. On a few occasions I have actually collapsed and fainted. I've had a event heart moniter but the results say I'm fine. My nutrition is very good. I eat properly. I'm getting very frustrated with this. I just want to know whats happening to me.
I'm a 25-year old female who recently had two fainting spells. I also have occasional heart palpatations and low body temperature (around 97.5.) Both times I fainted, I had been sleeping and got up too quickly. I've felt fine both before and after passing out. I've convinced myself I have a horrible heart condition. Do any of these symptoms sound familiar to anyone??
I use to have fainting spells. It is normal to get light headed when you go from a sitting to standing positon, but to pass out regularly isn't normal. You may be dehydrated, or you may be anemic if you are female, especially if you have heavy cycles. This is just my 2 cents based on my previous experience, but I would go to a GYN doc or your family doctor and ask them to check your Hemoglobin, which is the component of the red blood cells that deliver oxygen to the body.
Hi. I'm a 20 year old female who is pregnant with my first child. I've have had fainting spells for the past 4 years but everyone told me that I was just dehydrated. Since I've been pregnant, they seem to be getting worse. Just recently they have been occuring if I stand for more than 10 minutes or if I take a shower of any kind cool or warm. Also the last few times I've had these episodes, the last thing I remember is that I couldn't feel my entire body.

I am a 19 years old female and I have migraines with aura, and I've had them since I was 14 years old. Recently I've started having fainting spells with black outs, loss of hearing, shortness of breath, tunnel vision and severe SEVERE dizziness. The first time i fainted, i couldn't hear anything and my vision got blurry, hit my head hard on the desk as I fell while getting out of bed to get some water. Two days later, I had a migraine episode, the worst ever.
I have had several fainting spells over the last 3 years. I am an active 22 year old recent college graduate. Three years ago when I was still in college, I had two separate fainting spells over the course of two months where I felt very nauseous, thought I was going to throw up, and then would wake up passed out on the bathroom floor. I have had CAT scans, EKGs, insulin challenge tests, Halter (spelling?) monitors, blood tests and met with several doctors and a neurologist.
I have dizziness and fainting spells. Age 47 female. BP was 220/145 now on 120 mg x 3 daily Verapamil BP now averages 160/97. Palpitations not so often pulse rate when sitting or sleeping goes to 158-180 a minute. Afterwards feel breathless & tired and need to urinate for quite a while. A few times a week have really dizzy times and occasionally goes into full faints. Have had 3 episodes of SVT in last 6 months.
Well I'm sure there's a reason for the fainting spells. How often do they happen? Maybe a 24 hr or 48 hr EEG could help explain things? Some forms of seizures could also cause fainting. I hope you find an answer, I know how scary fainting can be since I've had it myself.
Since the beginning of February I have been suffering fainting and near fainting spells. Sometimes I can feel it coming on (tinitus like sound in my ear, blurred vision, can't hear or speak properly and headaches), sometimes it comes on so fast I can't tell till it's too late (One time I was talking normally to a friend and was feeling fine, then turned around and fell feeling horrible). This happens all the time at work, outside on the street, in the mall, etc.
I am a 17 year old Female, and am looking for help. I have been having re-occuring chest pain mostly on the right side, and tightness across the chest, usually induced by emotional stress, but occuring at other times also. No hyperventilation occurs during these spells. Also, everytime I get out of the bathtub, my lower legs are throbbing and have stabbing pains across them. This also occurs before I have chest pains. I've been getting dizzy lately, and having head-rushes everytime I stand up.
I am 22 year old female. I seem to faint without losing consciousness. I would be fine one minute, walking around, and next I would feel pressure in my head. And ringing in my ear, my sight would slowly but quicky go completely black and ringing in my ears. Sometimes I can grab on to things, like a table or chair, etc. But if I can't grab on something, I'd fall to my knees, sweating cold, tingling sensation all over body, and heaviness in limbs.
I know there must be an explanation for these fainting spells. Could it actually just be stress. The Doctor's can't actually detect anything causing it. I don't know where to go from here. He is a hairdresser. He's on his feet long hours a day. He's been doing this for about five years. He's around chemicals all day. But no new chemicals. I don't know what to think????

I can usually tell a few seconds before each episode, thats its about to happen, so I've not been hurt often. And really, I dont mind. Fainting doesnt bother me much, except that the endo told me that I should not be driving. This is very upsetting to me, as it is a restriction of freedom for me. When I wake up, I can tell whether it will be a "bad day," so I can plan my day accordingly. After I faint, I'm usually fatigued and I often have a mild to severe headache.
They only last for a mere split second, but I am concerned because I have had problems experiencing spontaneous fainting/dizzy spells my whole life since I was a child. These strange light-headed sensations are similar to that sudden drop feeling you may experience when you miss your step, or if you experience a random dip in the road while driving. They only last two to three seconds. I am wondering if it is any way affiliated with my problems with fainting that I experience.
I was fine for the next two months, with a couple of minor dizzy spells here and there. Then, about 5 weeks ago I had two more near fainting/diarrhea spells three days apart, which were quite scary. Over the next two weeks I was still weak and still having diarrhea/loose stool a few times a day, but eventually felt 100% for about three days. All Cardio tests (EKG, Echo, Holter moniter) were normal. The symptoms got very bad a few days later.
Thanks for reading! I'm a 23 y/o active female with a history of very severe symptoms during menstruation (nausea, vomiting, fainting, the works). Over the past few years I've been put on several Rx's for pain and nausea. I'm also on BC (Yaz) and have never been pregnant. These symptoms have continued to worsen, and a month ago I've started fainting and vomiting with little to no warning, and not during menstruation. I dropped and had a seizure in a parking lot in the middle of the day!
And please bear with me as i am going to start right at the begining just incase it has any refrence to her problem with dizzy spells/blackouts. In november 2009 my wife started with a server back amd hips problem, after a exray in Feb this year a exray showed spondilic changes and her doctor (GP) said it was Arthritis, she was of work for a while as she couldn't walk without servere pain, in may she was layed of work because she could not do the job that she was employed to do.
I checked into the hospital with palpitations, 2 fainting spells, dizziness, and shortness of breath. In 1 out of 5 ECGs (the only one taken immediately after I fainted), they found a Right Bundle Branch Block, which they did not find again on the other 4 ECGs they took. I also had a slightly lower-than-normal Echocardiogram (52% Ejection Quotient). Thyroid functioning, all the blood tests were normal.
