Anxiety fainting

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety fainting


Avatar m tn It could be though because anxiety comes with a very long list of symptoms. I do think fainting would be a rare one though. You've tried antidepressants and there was no change. It really does make me wonder if this is anxiety because if it were the AD's should have helped. Have you had your blood sugar tested? If it gets to high or to low you can faint.
Avatar n tn the first time i faint was on my first day in Gym, which the coach assured me its natural ! then after few weeks i got a feeling that i can't take my breath to the max capacity of my lungs but those symptoms went away after a couple of weeks ..
Avatar n tn In the last 2 years i have had 4 fainting spells. I have had bloodwork, tilt table test, and holter moniter tests done all neg. The last spell I fell down stairs. my room mate was there and said i was jerking and my eye's were rapiedly moving. this lasted 1 min I came to for a sec and went back out for another min. can you tell me what i should be looking for and what i need to test now?
Avatar n tn My 14-year-old daughter has been fainting off and on for the past few years. Her most recent episode was this morning. The same thing occurs each time these episodes happen. She gets up from sleeping and comes into my room complaining of getting a cramp in her calf. Meanwhile, she seems very distraught and uncomfortable and wants to lie down. Next, she says she needs to go the bathroom and goes to sit down on the toilet. She was leaning forward stating her chest hurt. She sat back up again.
Avatar n tn I don't think this is normal, and because this is the at least the 3rd time for this to happen, I think there is more envolved than anxiety, white coat syndrome. Thanks for any help or what tests should I ask for. My doc thinks it's in my head.
Avatar f tn I am 18 years old, and i keep fainting. I first fainted in the shower after not having anything to eat or drink all day, which i know is my fault. However, i have continued to faint every day since which has been about 10 days in a row. I had paramedics called out to me and had tests done like blood, egg and blood pressure. My blood was fine, i have a very fast blood rate and low blood pressure.
Avatar n tn If everything checks out when tests are ran on you, it could be a very good chance you have Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety can take an overwhelming toll on your body, without you realizing it. It's a secret killer. I have this disease and I take BUspar 5 mg 3 times a day and it works. My symptoms were, sweating, fear of death, feeling tired and sick all the time and heart PVC. I thought I was going to die all the time.
Avatar n tn I started fainting when I was 5 (30 now), due to anxiety... I have fainted at least 60 times in my life since, it's so frustrating. The first time I passed-out was when the monkeys came and took Dorothy and Toto in the Wizard of Oz, crazy I know ~ since then it's ranged from fear of needles, watching other people get injured, getting my ears pierced, seeing a bear rug as a child, the list goes on and on.
Avatar n tn same here. I hate that feeling.
Avatar f tn Has anyone ever experienced fainting during an anxiety or panic attack? If so, did this happen out of the blue and was it the very first symptom/episode for anyone?
Avatar f tn The weird thing is, it has morphed from 'fainting in church' to 'fainting from worrying about fainting!'... Which is why it happens at large formal events. It is embarrassing, which is why I worry about it, which is why I faint. I have heard my whole life that people don't actually faint from panic attacks, but rather they just FEEL like they are going to. But I DO! I have probably fainted over 200 times.
Avatar n tn although im not sure why im not really a stressed out person (i think) as for the questions regarding my lifestyle, the drinking every weekend is due to my lifestyle, im 27 professional and single, and so are most of my friends, its hectic, but i don't often do hard drugs (maybe once a month) and marijuana i do often but i don't consider that a drug... the fainting thing scared me...
Avatar f tn I have noticed it comes when I have high anxiety or stress. I usually get the worst anxiety around the time just before I start my menstrural cycle, I can confirm that this was the case it happend with the second one. I have told my Dr about this and she just brushed it off. I have recently been experiencing a lot of stress and my toes have been very cold and tingling but only in my toes, my feet are warm and I have full feeling.
Avatar f tn I was recently put on cipralex for panic attacks and anxiety. However the first day of my period I fainted and have continued to feel very dizzy. When feeling hot the dizziness tends to get worse. My periods are usually quite heavy, however I have never fainted before. My blood pressure is usually normal to low. My doctor said it could be a combination of the medication and heavy periods.
Avatar m tn If you suffer continuous headache, please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away who will evaluate the possibilities here and can provide you an appropriate treatment. Further referral to a psychologist may be also helpful in order to treat usual anxiety or depression after such injuries (sometimes one may have) that may be one of the aggravating factors for persistent headache. Hope this information proves helpful to you. Take Care & Regards!!!
Avatar m tn My mother has had bouts of fainting and light headedness. Sometimes they come weekly and other times not for 2 months. This has been going on since 2007. She has been admitted to hospital on a number of occasions but each time they have not come to any conclusions as to a diagnosis. These attacks of light headedness last 2-5 minutes. She slurs her speech, gets pins and needles in her arms, and sometimes but not always faints.
Avatar n tn Sometimes when you are at rest or relaxing, your blood pressure can drop fast and cause a fainting feeling or heaviness. Especially in people with already low but still normal blood pressure.
Avatar n tn Iron deficiency can cause palpitatons, tachycardia, SOB, and dizziness. Did you see a doctor after you had the fainting episode? You should let your doctor know what's going on, even if you just leave word with his nurse by giving them a call. They may want to do a quick blood test or just try you on some vitamins....your symptoms are also signs of anxiety, so letting your doctor know everything that's going on is the best place to start. Best to you!
1618806 tn?1304738077 It beats so fast sometimes, I feel shivers!! I force insomnia sometimes to avoid it. Docs all say it's anxiety, but when I'm awake during the day, I'm light headed and my stomach hurts, and sometimes I'll get hungry and while I'm eating, I'll get nauseas. Now, that the rapid heart beats are dwindling, I'm now experiencing a feeling of my heart beating too slow!! I get the sensation of fainting when I fall asleep.
Avatar n tn I am scared to go far away and I won't stay the night anywhere but my own house. Is this all anxiety? What should I do?
Avatar n tn Since then I have been in a world of anxiety. I'm a runner, but during times of anxiety it is tough for me to run. I recently noticed the last few times I ran, I felt the flutters and pauses during my cool down. Not so much while running, but during my cool down. Never before have I felt these during exercise only at rest. My first question is does this sound like anything serious or is it benign.
Avatar n tn s are taking me seriously, is because this all started after I had an anxiety reaction to fainting about 2 1/2 months ago. I am now seeing a psychologist (ive been to her twice now), and she thinks that my anxiety levels are not all that abnormal, and that my anxiety is not unjustified or irrational. My questions are: 1) Is it possible to have these kind of constant symptoms due to anxiety, even if I am not anxious constantly?
209987 tn?1451939065 we learned ( after signing adoption papers ) that he suffers from extreme anxiety. He digs holes under fences to get out, won't come back when called ( but boy am I getting a LOT of exercise chasing him 5 to 13 blocks each day! lol! ) barks non stop if left outside by himself for even a few minutes, will defecate, urinate, and totally " redecorate the house" if left inside the house by himself for even a few minutes, and gets very pushy on the stairs. Other than that? He's great!
Avatar n tn are you referring to medication for anxiety? You need to see a psychiatrist for an evaluation and go from there. Anxiety and panic attacks can be controlled with medication and often therapy helps. Hope this helps and best wishes.
