Fainting during sleep brain

Common Questions and Answers about Fainting during sleep brain


Avatar n tn I recently began to feel the symptoms you explained. Fainting in my sleep. Last weekend it happened to me while I was awake and I was taken to the ER. After extensive tests the only thing the doctors could come up with was Magnezium defficiency. I explained the fainting in my sleep to the doctor. It sounded foreign to him. I read up on Magnezium defficiency - it explained most of my symptoms (panic, shortness of breath, extreme weakness) but it didn't say anything about sleep fainting.
1424099 tn?1282944214 She has had a heart monitor, EKG, told to eat more salt, brain scans, every possible test at least 2 times and nothing has changed. We have seen cardiologists, our family doctor, pediatrians, neurologist, and a electrophysisist. She was put on beta blockers but we were told they wouldn't stop the fainting but make them fewer and it did. My parents are afraid of her injuring herself when she faints and would like to figure this out.
Avatar n tn Obviously, I am not in any shape or form an authority in sleep studies, but based on some readings I have done, there is no need for a long period of sleep in order to interpret one's condition during a sleep study--I can only guess that the fact that you managed to sleep for some period, it is enough for the electronic equipment (all the probes attached to you) to detect any anomalies in your sleep/awake modes.
Avatar f tn When such poor sleep quality is experienced often it can lead to brain fog and other adrenal issues. Adrenal glands require sleep and in fact sleep and relaxation are the best medicine to heal adrenal glands.
Avatar f tn Dear Slstou01, For syncope/fainting to occur, either the reticular activating system in the brain (responsible for regulating sleep-awake transition) needs to lose its blood supply or both hemispheres of the brain need to be deprived of blood, oxygen, or glucose. Since most of the causes have been ruled out, it can happen due to blockage of arteries supplying blood to the brain especially the carotids or during vasovagal attacks.
Avatar f tn Hi, Most commonly, fainting occurs because the brain does not get enough oxygen or sugar (glucose). The brain needs oxygen and sugar to function. These vital fuels are carried to the brain by the blood. If the brain does not get enough blood, the brain may not get enough oxygen and sugar, causing fainting. Or if the level of oxygen or sugar in the blood decreases, the brain may not get enough of them.
Avatar f tn If she is of menstruating age, she will benefit from foods rich in iron, like liver, kidneys. Also ensure that she gets sufficient sleep and drinks enough water during the day so as not to get dehydrated.
Avatar n tn Started 3 months ago. Fainting for no reason. 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. Had Blood workup, EEG, EKG, Cat Scan, MRI, Myoview, stress treadmill, Ultra Sound. All tests came back negative. I can't drive or go anywhere alone. Has anyone had this condition? Don't know what else I can do. Has changed my whole life!
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 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 m tn Hopefully you would have one during the study that could be observed. Until you have a sleep study to rule out some sleep disorders, all else is a maybe. With anxiety, it is easy to overthink things. Please, give yourself a break. You need to be able to sleep without worrying - it's important to both your physical and mental well being. If it all comes back normal, maybe you'll be able to relax a little about it. I know I can tend to be single-focused, and I'm not always right.
634733 tn?1316629592 Still haven't eaten since Saturday lunch (it's Monday midday here) and don't have any appetite. Head still feels weird and kinda wobbly inside. Any similar experiences - can MS cause fainting?
Avatar n tn Could something benign like neurocardiogenic syncope produce near fainting when exercising? The info I read said fainting or near fainting with exercising was a red flag. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, I have not found out what causes my brain fog. My best guess at this time is that it is sleep-related.
1128331 tn?1259946848 Cold Sweats, charlie horse, fainting, Temple pulsation, vision blurred Forgive the medical terminology spelling errors. I'm a 69 yr old white woman. Smoker (i know i know.) I take meds for high cholesterol, high blood pressure. I currently have a significant distended abdomen after having a colonoscopy in July. Unable to have a "normal" BM, until a week ago. During the procedure, they ran into complications, they backed out to find another way to turn my body so scoping was doable.
5891248 tn?1406414464 During my 2nd trimester I got dizzy and fainted in a grocery store. That day I was busy doing a bunch of errands and so I didn't eat enough or drink hardly any water. My doctor said it was mostly because I didn't drink water, because our bodies need more water to maintain all the extra blood due to pregnancy. Now I try to take breaks in between chores and errands and eat and drink right.
Avatar f tn At this same age my son began having these symptoms, after numerous visits to many doctors and many test for years my son was given a test, though I apologize for not being able to remember the exact name, to measure the activity of his brain during wake time, sleep time and reaction to a strobe light and it was determined this was a form of seizure which he thankfully outgrew.
7316838 tn?1390080426 In September 2013 my mom took me to get blood tests done because she noticed I was lacking energy almost all the time. I'd sleep a lot and wasn't very active for a 15 year old girl. Everything came back fine; no low blood sugar, thyroid/kidney problems etc. A few weeks later I fainted suddenly in class. I was just standing there and started feeling hot, dizzy and lightheaded. I woke up on the floor. My hands were tingling and my ears were ringing.
Avatar m tn Hi All, you seem to have a nice Community here, so I'm jumping in, and as this is my introduction post, it will be a bit long, with my personal and medical background, but I'm mostly interested in those of you that suffer from severe "Brain Fog" Numb Face, Distorted vision. Also... I am creating this post with line breaks...
Avatar n tn I believe it all started or at least triggered this problem with a really terrible acid reflux/heartburn about 5months ago,after about 10days I got super Terrible Dizziness/Fainting/lightheadedness which lasted for like a month before It got a bit better/used more to it, but it has been constantly on for the last 5months (just has changed in severity from time to time) , the Dizziness is always there, whatever I do and even after a good nights sleep freshly waking up it is always there and I fe
Avatar f tn I first started experiencing it at 11 years old and I am now 21 years old. For me it feels like my brain and eyes are shaking, and if I close my eyes, my brain begins to teeter. I guess that's the vertigo part. I am active as well. I don't travel, don't do any drugs, and don't drink. It happens while I'm reading a book before bed or when I was at a spa or even while I was d stress free year. Is it stress related? Do I need more sleep? Do I need to avoid certain foods?
Avatar n tn Also forgot to mention prior to playing that game, the day before I had the SATS (4hrs -- my brain was fried) plus I have been up for a total of 18hrs and had 8-9hrs of sleep. Maybe I was still tired from the day before and just overexerted myself or something. I called my pediatric and he said "muscle neurology" or something like that. My mom, dad or their parents do not have any heart problems that I know of.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn The results for the 24h holter was frightening for me since there was one missing QRS complex with a prior p wave during sleep (PR intervals are normal, the ones prior and after the missed beat are the same length, the p wave came a bit early, around 15% early, but the beat after the missing one came in time).
661788 tn?1269018186 and many use a CPAP machine to assist them during the night. I was sent to a sleep clinic, but the dr there kept rxing meds that didn't work and then he wanted me to go to a behavoirist to learn how to get to sleep....so I didn't go back.Since I had surgery I am sleeping better, I still snore, but I am sleeping.

Avatar n tn I was was diagnosed with endo at 33 after having pain (right side only) not just during my period, but on and off during my whole cycle. I was scheduled for a lap, and low and behold, I ended up pregnant. I am thrilled because I wasn't sure that was even possible. I am 5 1/2 weeks in and I am experiencing the same endo pain I had but more severe. This is not only reallllly uncomfortable, but worse than the pain- its making so paranoid that something is wrong or will go wrong.
7474434 tn?1391194108 3) vistaril rx - to help calm the nervous system 4) melatonin - helps to tell the body/brain that it is time to sleep 5) kavinace - supposedly works on the GABA receptors in your brain (think the "calm" receptors) 6) sam-e - this simply has almost always worked to help put me to sleep in any condition, so I am listing it here. careful not to take too much of this, so you do not get serotonin syndrome. 7) MOVE AROUND.
Avatar f tn I had to start the Vicodin again to ease the pain but have to tolerate the nausea. How do you know if your brain is swelling? So many questions and no answers....
Avatar n tn I'll experience brain zaps; I gasp for breath; I woke up choking (although I credit that to acid reflux); I feel a heavy feeling in my chest and shiver out of sleep. All of this results in short-term panic and an extremely rapid heart rate. A little background about me: I am a 25 year old male, 6'0" 200 pounds, although I work out 4 times a week and I am more muscular than overweight.
