Fainting while kneeling

Common Questions and Answers about Fainting while kneeling

fainting

Should I just give up kneeling at all? Is kneeling while pregnant commonly seen as a bad thing? Should I be asking my doctor about this? For any other Catholic pregnant ladies, what would you do? In other words, help!
Hi, I am a while 20yr/s female from NZ,. It's been about a year since the symptoms started, and for about a year no one can figure out what's wrong with me. I'm starting to lose hope that I'll ever feel normal again, so this is my last resort. I'm hoping someone can give me some suggestions of where to look and what to ask Doctors to look for, because I'm out of ideas.
The tecnick we used was the following 10 deep breaths while kneeling then stand up holding the breath and your friend would hold you by the carotoid arteries cuting up the blood supply.... We were like 10 people playing this game in numerous occasions i remember i had done it many times.... I remember a friend of mine that ws doing it all the time even by his self Now 12 years from back then i think that we where very lucky that everyone is ok ftom it!!!!
I do get diarrhea with bad cramps maybe 4 or 5 times a month, but not to the extent of fainting. Both times the fainting/diarrhea attack happened to me, I had just finished eating. The diarrhea lasted about 3-4 days, with some minor rectal bleeding. Also, I've noticed that when I get the "milder" diarrhea attacks, they're usually in the morning, anywhere from 5 min. to an hour after drinking my morning cup of coffee, or after eating lunch.

But, she is still fainting and shaky and tired all the time. It is very scarey. The problem is we have no clue what to eat. She does not drink caffenine or candy or sugar stuff. I wish I could find a doctor that could help with all the problems.
My episodes have a mind of there own and stop as they please. Any kind of bending,sitting,kneeling,overeating,turning from side to side while laying,getting upset,yelling and most of all changing my daily routine starts them up. If I usually wake up at 9am and I wake up at 11am instead my whole day will be a mess with these beats. Everything I do sets them off. When its bad is when my whole body feels sick and my heart and chest area have a horrific feeling inside that I cant even explain.
- Climbing stairs - guaranteed to set off an SVT event - Taking hot showers - guaranteed to set off an SVT event - Stooping, kneeling, or squatting - fair chance of setting off an SVT event when I got up. - And one of the worst things - being startled by the phone ringing in the middle of the night. It always set off an SVT event. (Unfortunately, we're not able to turn off the phone as I have an elderly parent who isn't in the best of health.
I haven't worked in quite a while but I am alive which may not have been the outcome if I didn't do the treatment so what's the answer? I would like some bona fide information about the long term effects, certainly there are enough people out there who could start a campaign to find out how to do this. What are the long term effects, what can be done to help deal with them and what percent of people have them. These are things that I would like to know. Who does this type of research?
woo hoo!!! I'm not crazy after all. I went to a neurologist a couple years ago, and testing was normal. He said it could be a form of migraine but I just don't believe that. I gave up asking the Doc cuz I didn't want to sound like a hypochondriac. Mine is pretty much the same as described: comes on fast up to few minutes after getting out of car or sitting for a while. Pressure in upper torso, spine, head, and ears go "faint sounding" and super strong throbbing sensation.
I didn't get one right away, and the next day, experienced a muscle twitch under the skin while I was at work. I immediately panicked and went first thing the next day for a tetanus shot. Over the course of the neck few weeks, I noticed muscle weakness, twitching in the jaw and neck stiffness, and an increase in heart rate (especially with light exertion and going from sitting to standing position) and general feelings of exhaustion.
Dear all, Froghunter, we really sympathize with what happened to you, all the testimonies from you and others people are so closed from what my wife is living. Before she was diagnosed at 38, after a period of tiredness, she was an incredibily dynamic person, flying planes, riding motorbike and race cars. The treatment, six months, was like hell, but she was sure to recover her health and had a lot of project. During that period, she wrote a book that was published after.
I couldn’t pinpoint a specific food or drink that could be described as the catalyst for this horrible feeling because sometimes if I ate pizza I felt like I was going to die, and then other times I could eat pizza and there were no symptoms at all. Some days if I ate beans I felt like I was going to blow up, while other days the gas was minimal.
oh my gosh, while googling for "heat sensation in lower leg" I found these comments....has anyone been told what causes this? Mine started about a month or so ago and happens periodically. It is SO strange and I haven't even mentioned it to anyone for fear they'd think I was imagining it or something! I was glad to see others describing the exact same sensation. I have my annual physical in about 3 weeks and will mention it, but am also thinking my dr will think I'm a hypochondriac!
