Fainting and weakness

Common Questions and Answers about Fainting and weakness


1102792 tn?1285928860 What can I do to stop this because the pain and weakness is so sudden and severe that you'd rather die than endure it.
Avatar f tn I get sweaty on my forehead but my heads cold and my eyes go white and I fell like I'm going to pass out. (While pregnant I'll usually puke as well.) However I've done this since I was young (like 5) so its not odd for me. But it does happen. Idk why though.
Avatar n tn I am trying to distinguish between syncope and seizure. Did you have headache or mental confusion after fainting episode?
Avatar f tn I have had these problems on and off, including around him, but usually I feel a lot lighter and more motivated to get up and go and do things when I'm with him. In the last couple months especially, though, I find myself unable to get out of bed or even just watch netflix in bed even with him. Some days the weakness is so severe that he has to help me get to the washroom or get food and such for me, because it takes so much energy and strain to hold myself up.
Avatar f tn I am hypothyrodic and the first symptoms I had was light headedness ans weakness. Take a simple general blood test to see the levels of your blood cells and your TSH (thyroid hormone).
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 Initially it was tough trying to catch some sleep but that got better but when i sleep and i wake in between i feel dizzy,i feel pressure in my head and i think it affects my ear and mouth too,sometimes i feel sharp pains in my ear especially the left one.My ankles sometimes feel numb and my arms too.Recently my palms feel tingly and my butt aches.I've done an ECG and it came back fine.I've also done a CT Scan and everything is fine.
Avatar n tn In 2-5 min appears the dizziness and weakness and I am passing out for seconds. After I regain consciousness the pain disappears in 5-10 min. I still feel the weakness and dizziness for 2-3 hours after that. All my blood analysis are normal as well as electrocardiogram that was done right after I passed out. The pain can appear while I am sitting or laying. Thank you.
Avatar n tn This past August i got this severe head pressure ,,and blood pressure dropped like i would pass out,,and then i saw a neurologist and he said that i should get the MRI mine wasn';t normal , so iam struggling until i know more.. Noone seems to know whats really wrong yet anyway. Thats good your getting the heart tests.. stay on it.. Let us know how it turns out.
Avatar f tn The doctor just told me to give him Tylenol and let him rest, but didn't give me an exact reason for the weakness, body aches, and and fainting spell. When I asked if it could be a viral bug he just said possibly. Has anyone here ever had this happen with their child, and might it just be a virus of some sort? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Avatar f tn Please consult a neurologist an apart from fainting and arm weakness, you are now also having cognitive problems. This could be due to something in the brain. A CT scan or MRI of the brain may be required. The other possibility is a blood pressure falling very low or a compression of upper cervical spinal nerve. However these should not cause any cognitive problems unless they are not related and are due to stress or depression. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar f tn This way your heart is being monitored and when you feel symptoms you can write it down and the time it happened and they can tell you for sure if it is heart related or not. I hope you get better soon. Oh, I believe if you had a hole in your heart it would have shown up on an ultrasound.
Avatar f tn For the last three days I've been weak and getting fainting spells. I didnt have this problem before.I just hit 23weeks yesterday. I am careful to get up slowley and move slow but still i feel fainty. Could I have gestational diabeties. My grandma died from diabites and my dad has diabites and my family has a history of high blood pressure.
Avatar f tn I have ADHd, Bipolar, Depression, PTSD, OCD,anxiety and panic disorder and Social anxiety disorder. I also get frequent dizzy and fainting spells, and have had problems managing my sugar and salt intake for a while.It's like my body is use to a certain level of sugar, and when it goes too long without that amount, my body crashes. I am 6 months pregnant, and this is my second child. I had 9 miscarriages before I was able to hold my first daughter.
Avatar f tn Besides all the symptoms that come with these attacks, i constantly have dizziness, upper back and neck pain and stiffness and i feel weak just going up the steps. I also have a sharp pain on my right shoulder which even prevents me from sleeping on my right side. My MRI's are all normal as well as eeg, ekg, stress tests, echoes and bloodwork.
Avatar f tn The spells are because you don't have as much oxygen in your blood as before - they should go away once you start to climb up so track that doc down now and go tomorrow but be careful on stairs and driving and stuff in the meantime...........it's dangerous stuff fainting and even turning my head too fast made me very very dizzy. You don't want to get hurt even more (or hurt anybody else either). GOOD LUCK!
Avatar f tn Periodically, I get these horrible episodes when I feel incrediby weak and if I remain standing I get dizzy and feel as if I'll faint. Usually, when this occurs it happens over the course of the morning (several hours) and gets somewhat better after eating lunch (symptoms don't get better after eating breakfast, however). I've checked my glucose (fingerstick glucose monitor) several times when I'm feeling this way and my glucose is always normal.
Avatar n tn Possibilities that may need to be considered include drug interaction with alcohol, hormonal/ endocrine issues, neuro-endocrine related causes, anxiety etc. The sudden weakness could indicate a TIA and cardiovascular causes would need to be ruled out. I would suggest seeing an internist initially for a detailed evaluation and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Hope this helps. Take care!

Avatar f tn I am 6 months pregnant. I keep fainting and feeling weak. Is this common?
Avatar n tn Basilar migraine consists of headache, usually in the back of the head both sides, with dizziness, loss of balance, difficulty maintaining your posture, ringing (or some sound in your head), bilateral numbness/tingling and weakness (may not be symmetrical - such as numbness in one place and weakness on the other side), muffled hearing, nausea and vomiting, slurred speech, visual problems, such as double vision, confusion or lethargy, fainting.
Avatar m tn After fainting attacts i feel very week and i can not go out side and that weakness remains for two to three weaks. my blood pressure is normal,no thing found after blood taste and my eyes is also normal. so what may be the cause of fainting.
Avatar f tn I tried to yell out to my parents, but I couldn't, and i thought i was going to die, Then i woke up. I actually felt like it was real, and not a dream. And when I woke up, i had all the symptoms of when i just faint. I'm not sure where my dream started, and where real life ended. I also don't know if I actually fainted, or if it is even possible to faint while sleeping.. but it made me scared to fall back to sleep for a long time... Any advice?
Avatar m tn i have a My french bulldog pet. It s 3 months old. It allways drinking water and fainting in 2-3 min. Why fainting ? it s Drinking water > and Fainting > It fearing and going to bed and sleeping :( Why ? Pls help.
Avatar n tn Always sitting, perfectly relaxed and calm. A sudden feeling of heat, nausea, weakness, light-headedness and BOOM! Hit the floor. Had 6 episodes, lost consciousness twice.>> My blood pressure remains normal. Everything is normal. That's why they don't know how to diagnose it, I guess.
Avatar n tn Several times after a perfectly formed, normal bowel movement as the peristalsis continues my whole system slowly goes into a huge spasm of nausea and within a few minutes I pass out. Afterwards I am weak for the rest of the day, sometimes for a couple of days; and often my digestive system then goes into diareah mode. I then can't eat anything except crackers, rice,etc. without causing a lot of pain and maybe another another attack.
