Fainting blood circulation

Common Questions and Answers about Fainting blood circulation


Avatar n tn Perhaps a different field of medicine is at work, like being sick, as I mentioned before, or maybe a cardiology abnormality, which has to do with the blood circulation in the body, may be what gave you chills and made you feel faint.
Avatar f tn Is anyone else having problems feeling really dizzy or fainting? I passed out last week in the middle of cosco and almost again in Wal-Mart anyone else having or had this problem??
Avatar n tn for the past year my 18 year old daughter had episodes of fainting, She has seen doctors and had tests done and still no one can tell why she is getting this. is there anything else that u recomend?
Avatar n tn Another example, sleeping pills are the treatment of nightmare of being chased of neurasthenia, due to the nightmare of being chased of such patients is caused by tachycardia, and sleeping pills can lead to slower heartbeat, moreover slower heartbeat sometimes leads to sleep paralysis or fainting for people of low blood pressure. Therefore, treating a nightmare with sleeping pills at times is not only invalid, but also it will instead increase the patient’s state of the disease.
Avatar n tn This in effect causes decreased circulation of blood resulting in dizziness/lightheadedness. This is more pronounced if the person stands up from a lying down position. This is detected by recording the blood pressure recordings in the sitting, standing and lying down positions. If the variations in blood pressure recordings are more than 10 mmHg, it is diagnosed as postural hypotension/Orthostatic Hypotension. Make this suggestion also. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I am scared. I have had an ECG, blood work, and a hearing test which were all normal. A scope introduced through the nose revealed no problems with inner ears.
Avatar n tn Dear jay, The medical term for fainting is syncope (or near syncope if one dosen't actually pass out). This is a common but complex condition that has many causes. The most common cause is the common faint (neurocardiogenic or vasovagal syncope). This is the typical faint caused by strong emotional factors (i.e. the sight of blood) and is usually brief in duration. The person almost never harms themselves and the precipitating factor can usually be identified.
Avatar f tn Hello, Important causes of dizziness include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or hypotension (low blood pressure) .Pls get yourself evaluated for that. Sometimes lack of proper sleep or taking stress can also lead to dizziness. Sometimes, there are partial or complete blockages in the arteries that supply the brain with blood.
Avatar m tn Hi, My Dad just confessed he's having the following symptoms: Daytime: -sometimes he feels "pressure" on his carotid artery (neck) as if he could feel the blood or it were getting inflamed. -he cannot lay down to watch tv for example because he starts getting dizzy as if the blood was not getting to his head. Nighttime: -He can only sleep almost sitting up, if he lays down he wakes up dizzy, with nausea, short of breath, and has to walk around to make it go away.
Avatar n tn --Don't have enough oxygen coming to brain or don't have good enough blood flow circulation somewhere due to some blockage or heart problem running in to family. --There is something else seriously wrong with me somewhere(tumor/cancer which affects my all body, who knows...
Avatar f tn I have had all the above procedures and while I have failed the Nuclear stress test a couple of times over the years, when followed up with a look by catheter I was found to have no blockage in my heart (the main purpose of the Nuclear stress test is to identify poor blood circulation in/to the heart muscles. Sorry to read about having insurance only to find it doesn't pay. do check to see if a different medical reason will put it into the covered category.
Avatar n tn However after about a minute of sitting there with nothing coming out I suddenly few light headed and am starting to get a dizzy spell like I am about to faint and my breathing weakens. 3. This borderline fainting sensation lasts for about another minute before I break out into a sudden sweat all over my body. Within a few seconds I have sweat literally pouring out of me, my clothes are wet as if I ran a marathon or something. 4.
Avatar n tn Also staying hydrated with fluids, and raising my bp with increased sodium intake (which I questioned but it's normal with ANS patients) compression hose to stop blood pooling in the legs/feet and help circulation. bp fluctuations can be caused by many things so a dr needs to figure out what is going on; it may be something as simple as dehydration, blood loss, infection, side effect of meds, or as complex as autonomic dysfunction/dysautonomia.
Avatar n tn Changes in blood pressure Changes in heart rate Abnormal heart rhythms Anemia (an inadequate quantity of healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your tissues) Improper blood circulation Metabolic and lung disorders Standing too fast Exhaustion Emotional stress Pain Overheating Illness Some medications Sometimes, fainting causes are harmless. Other times, they can be life threatening.
Avatar f tn I am 53 years old and have several major health problems but lately I have been fainting for no apparent reason, its happened 6 times random times throughout the day no common thread I have an excellent diet because I am allergic to soy and dairy so I don't eat any processed foods at all, My EEG was normal my echo showed trace pericardial effusion, and trace mitral, pulmonic and bicupid insufficiency,, my EF was recorded visually at 65% heart problems do run in my family and I have chronic fati
306259 tn?1204773075 Urine test was fine. Blood work showed HIGH WBC. All previous blood work (when she had no fever) showed normal WBC. Do any of you get these unexplained fevers? Other issue: She has to have blood flow issues because her skin will have dark red blotchy areas (mainly on shoulders, arms, & chest) and her feet will be purple/gray in color after standing still for just a few mins. Does anyone have any insight on blood flow with autonomic disorders and how that is treated?
599316 tn?1256925213 I know its normal when walking and moving aorund in pregnancy but sitting for about 20 min... maybe my circulation wasnt good. Blood pressure could be too.
Avatar f tn if it falls below 10, it is inadequate to maintain circulation. When the blood pressure is low, if the pulse pressure is sufficient to maintain circulation, it is considered normal. It is only in a tiny minority of people with low blood pressure, ie, readings below 90/60 mmHg, where there is an underlying cause and treatment may be needed. Under age 50 diastolic is more predictive. At ages 50-59 systolic is most predictive and after 60 the pulse pressure is most important.
Avatar n tn A change of just 20 mm Hg — a drop from 130 systolic to 110 systolic, for example — can cause dizziness and fainting when the brain fails to receive an adequate supply of blood. And big plunges, especially those caused by uncontrolled bleeding (a surgical risk...a low going into surgery does not leave much slack) and that is a surgeon's call to assume the risk, and it can be life threatening.
Avatar f tn the nurse was doing fine till when the vial/syringe was full, i felt a jerking in my arm and my fingers were moving and i had the feeling you get after your foot falls asleep. i felt suddenly nauseated and the room started spinning and i saw lights and felt far away (fainting symptoms). But the scary thing is that every day i have had the same tingeling in my fingers (particularly the middle one) and the same pain in the crook of my elbow where the syringe was.
Avatar n tn its not blood blisters,its a blood vessel under the skin like your vein pops and then there is a bruise for about 2 days then it goes away
Avatar f tn Results were dying feelings in the body, feeling that I woke up from a fainting episode, etc. These symptoms went on the summer of 2004 undiagnosed and dismissed by family doctor, previous cardiologist, endocronologist, etc. I am currently taking verapamil 120mg 2X. For the past few months I have experienced a lot of extra stress with long working hours due partially to my extreme type A personality and have not been able to stay aleep.
Avatar m tn fast, pounding, or uneven heartbeats; feeling light-headed, fainting; increased blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, trouble concentrating, chest pain, numbness, seizure); or tremor, restlessness, hallucinations, unusual behavior, or motor tics (muscle twitches). A HR of 98 would not be serious in normal circumstances, but I'm not sure about if it's chemically induced. You say " I also have a "normal abnormal heart rate.
Avatar f tn So Doctor told me to take only 20mg of lisinopril every day. I did. Then, even more serious headaches, dizziness, and feeling like fainting, and high blood pressure. So Doctor then prescribed Atenolol 25mg per day. One week of trial. Even higher blood pressure around 170/110. So Doctor then advised that I should take both Lisinopril 30mg in the morning, and Atenolol 25mg at night.
446896 tn?1237806342 Is there anyone else out there going through this? If I take blood pressure meds I have fainting spells and fall down and terrible leg cramps, because my BP must drop too low in a non-threatening environment. I need some surgery, but can never pass the BP machine test.
Avatar n tn The two main causes of syncope are cardiac arrhythmias and neurocardiogenic syndromes. In both of these conditions, blood circulation to the brain is reduced, resulting in temporary loss of consciousness. You ask about neurocardiogenic: In this condition blood vessels tend to expand, which leads to pooling of blood in the lower parts of the body. As a result, less blood reaches the brain and this causes fainting.
Avatar m tn Hi Everyone, Just wondering if it’s possible that my heart focus (cardiophobia) can lead to the very low blood pressure or high blood pressure I have daily?
Avatar n tn The risk is when the heart rate is slow there exits a possibility there is not enough blood pumped into circulation, etc. If too low you can have a fainting spell as well. You probably should get a doctor's evaluation of your bradycardia. Thanks for your question, and if you have any follow up questions or comments you are welcome to respond.
Avatar n tn It all has to do with blood circulation.
Avatar f tn The problem is that stimulation of the vagus nerve drops the heart rate and diminishes flow and circulation. In general, this is not helping overall blood flow. There are vast genetic differences in the sensitivity of the vagus nerve, as well as the sensitivity at various points close to surfaces of the body. The late Jackie Kennedy had a sensitive vagus nerve, and was prone to fainting. For most people, singing of any sort has little effect on vagus stimulation. Coughing, of course does.
