Common Questions and Answers about Fainting and reasons

fainting

Avatar n tn Usually they want that between 2 and 3. There are a number of reasons for a patient to black out, and they need to notify their physician.
Avatar f tn So i was at the store today, and out of no where i started feeling nauseous and clammy. And then it was like i was in a tunnel and couldnt hear or see anything clearly. Next thing i know im on the floor looking around. So i fainted. First time in my life. Im 16 weeks. Is it normal? Has this happened to any of y'all? And i was down for just a few seconds.
Avatar n tn Protein is like the wood in a fire, it burns and heats up a person. And if you ain't got no fire, you'll get cold. In addition, protein gives you energy, and if you don't have any, you can get pretty weak and light-headed. But there are many reasons why this happened to you, those are just my top two choices. Neurologically speaking, I personally cannot think of anything along those lines that would make you have chills and pass out.

Avatar f tn 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. I have asthma and am on breo now and spiriva, I was taking no control medication the first time it happened (2014) and on advise the second time (2018). I am concerned it will happen again soon, any idea on what it could be?
Avatar m tn Vomiting, bearing down to have a bowel movement, or conditions that drop blood pressure amplify the effects of the vagus nerve and redirects much blood to the gut which may lead to fainting. Dehydration, psychological triggers such as anxiety, panic disorder and stress, shock, drugs or alcohol, and heart arrythmia are other likely causes. It would be best to have a further evaluation done by your mother's doctor to rule out other causes.

I have never heard of someone getting approved for this based on syncope rather than a mobility issue, so if someone else knows more about insurance re: this, please tell.
Avatar m tn The numbness slowly crawled up both my arms, as that was happening i could feel myself getting light headed and nauseous again. My mom looked at me and said i was turning ghost white and before i could respond my vision went and and the next thing i know I'm waking up on the floor. Everyone was freaked out, they said i was out for about 4 seconds. Once i came to after those four seconds, I could not stand on my own two feet, i couldnt even open my eyes this time.
Avatar n tn Hi,sorry to hear your not feeling well.Have you been to your doctor or neurologist about these symptoms?Some of what you describe are panic attacks,being through a traumatic experience does some times bring on fear or afraid of dying.You need to make an appointment with your doctor or neurologist.Having a pinched nerve in your neck does not cause,these feelings.Or having arthritis in your neck.Make an appointment as possible though.You may need an MRI of your brain,or catscan of your brain.
Avatar f tn I understand about the fainting and symptoms that you are discussing. I hope that you will feel better soon and get the right kind of help............ I was born with a hole in heart and leaky mvp. Had repairs 10 years ago. 4.5 years ago had heart ablation and develope 3. P.E.'s. I was not happy. About 3 years ago developed the feeling of fainting. The drs. said cannot do anymore, all of my test came out fine. Never had a tilt table and that will be performed at USC in a few weeks.
Avatar f tn My 17 year old son started having spells of getting dizzy and then passing out, when he comes to, he is out of sorts and the last one fell and hurt his back. Also he has a history of nose bleeds, the doctor tells me this is due to allergies. The nose bleeds did stop for awhile and then these spells started and the nose bleeds have started again. I would appreciate any feed back you might have.
Avatar n tn I am 23 I have a 4yr old and 6 month old boys and for the past 5 or so months I have been getting light headed, dizzy, near to fully fainting, I continously feel tired and I yawn all day and from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed my legs hurt constantly and I feel I can not support my own weight. I have tried better foods in my diet, multivitamins, I have been on Ibprofan for the past 3 weeks for the leg pain, I go to bed early to get more sleep.
Avatar m tn The most common etiology would be high blood pressure, although there may be man reasons. Given your symptoms and echocardiogram findings along with a normal coronary angiogram (cardiac cath) you may consider asking your doctor about an echocardiogram with a bubble study. This will look for a communication between the atria of your heart (the top two chambers).
Avatar f tn Ill be doing something one minute then the next thing is i've passed out in a comletly different place and couldnt tell you how i got there. It all goes completly black. For obvious reasons this has made me anxious and scared. It is difficult to give you any direct triggers as they have each been in a different situation. The first time it happened i was at a gig and its also happened during one my exams as well. so in answer to your your question, not that i know of no.
Avatar f tn Also lying down will sometimes raise your bp a little and stop a fainting spell. (I take bp meds and when I was trying different ones and strengths out I had to learn how to equalize my bp sometimes if it got too low.).
Avatar n tn I often exercise all areas of my body while working, although to a comfortable level, and have begun drinking water regularly in the hope of combating these symptoms. I have had regular check ups with my doctor for other reasons, such as a flu, and have always been curious with the fact that my blood pressure is very healthy.
Avatar f tn Even then if you suffer continuous headache, please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away who will evaluate the further underlying disorders here that may be the main reasons of your migraine attacks and can provide you an appropriate treatment. Hope this information proves helpful to you. Take Care & Regards!!!
Avatar n tn I have copied this out for you, it happens quite frequently While there are uncommon serious causes of passing out in children, the majority of fainting episodes are brought about by reasons that are neither serious nor life-threatening. The most common reason for fainting in children is called vasovagal syncope [VAY-so-VAY-gull SEENK-oh-pee). Vasovagal syncope is an abnormal reaction of the nerves to otherwise normal circumstances. These nerves dictate the heart rate and blood pressure.
Avatar n tn I am a healthy, athletic girl and there are no reasons I can think of for my fainting besides my previously diagnosed hypoglycemia. Several people I have spoken to wonder if I could be having seizures and not be diagnosed with epilepsy. I also have very limited health insurance so I am holding out to see a doctor because I have already had so many tests done already, all with negative results.
Avatar m tn Hello Auto, If an physician told you to have this "checked out" than that is exactly what I would do. Does this happen at any other time? That would be concerning. If that occurs only when you have "injections" or "see blood" than I would not be so concerned. In my experience it is not abnormal for males to faint at the sight of blood or a needle. We use to always watch the male in cases of blood or needles.
Avatar m tn The cardiologist has ruled out cardiac reasons for the near fainting spells. They seem to be more frequent and intense during the fevers. Could it be nerve damage related? I've been getting adequate fluid intake, so don't think that's part of it. What other possibilities are there? Also, he was able to rule out heart valve vegetations, clots and infection. None of them are related to what's happening in the nervous system.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn This is a test where they induce fainting and evaluate what happens when you faint. Turns out this is what I have and basically my blood pressure randomly drops and therefore I faint. To control it he put me on a beta blocker and I have been on it for a year and a half with no more fainting spells and it also controlled the rare palpitations I used to have.
Avatar f tn She is now 11 years old and is experiencing fainting spells and her tachycardia is very noticeable to her. She also has moderate learning disabilities and is a full time Special Education student. My questions are: Do the fainting spells and tachycardia have anything to do with her enlarged heart and if so, should we seek medical attention? I was never given any information on what to expect and after her 5th year evaluation, I was told that she wouldn't need anymore follow-ups.
Avatar n tn ) There could be alot of reasons this is happening to you, and only a doctor could properly assess the situation and symptoms. I hope that my experiences can be of some help to you! Good luck!
Avatar m tn at a minimum, your child needs an electrocardiogram (ECG) to check for electrical problems that can lead to fainting and possibly an echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) to evaluate the cause of the heart murmur and see if it would be linked in any way to the fainting episode. Fainting is generally not an emergent problem, unless it occurs during physical activity or with stress, when we would be more worried about serious arrhythmias of the heart.
Avatar n tn And later that night I did return to the bathroom successfully three times. What is the cause of my fainting and is it dangerous, should I be worried? Or is it because the tea was too old?
