Fainting in teenage girls

Common Questions and Answers about Fainting in teenage girls


Avatar f tn Losartan is supposed to increase exercise tolerance in adults, but Sian is young, and young girls her age are surprisingly prone to fainting, for some reason. Losartan might perhaps increase the tendency. However, I would suggest that at this point, another visit with the doctor is indicated to discuss the new symptoms.
Avatar n tn however, once, about 10 years ago, I passed out face first in the bathroom and woke up later. Then, just two days ago, another episode and fainting spell. Unfortunately, I went head first and split open my nose, and now have a puffy lip and somewhat of black eyes. But, I do find that it may be after a stressful event and I was probably constipated and finally relaxed and/or I have eaten some rich foods. My husband suggested to take deep breaths more, and not hold my breath.
5726917 tn?1373166891 I say this because I know my daughter would begin to breathe very shallowly when she was in crowds in an effort to fade into the background. Teenage years are tough to deal with for everybody and breath holding occurs way more often than people realize. So.... just remember to breathe....
Avatar f tn brother's funeral was yesterday -I made a mistake with my confusion when I incorrectly mentioned he was 47 in my post yesterday-he was only 42. My mom is in the hospital in very critical condition-blood disorder b/c of wrong meds from last week and combined with still undiagnosed illness-not able to swallow, loss of speech, breathing difficulties, fainting and on and on. She's paraplegic with TBI stemming from an injury when she was hit by a drunken driver. My poor dad is losing it.
Avatar n tn but the majority of times blood came out in the sperm, or only after ejaculation during urination, or both in the sperm and the urine. once i woke up without having had sex that week and urinated blood. i tested my blood, sperm, and urine and the only abnormality was a high psa level. my dr said it is very rare and is that high in 40/50 year old. i did a biopsy for prostate cancer and my dr said that everything was ok. after the biopsy, i waqs back to normal.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn Thanks Laur!! And that's great about your period!!! I plan to have my period this week one way or another!!! Once i get blood results back, which i'm almost possitive will be negative for pregnancy, I'm filling my prescription and taking those pills to bring down my period. I can't take it anymore ;p Thanks for the advice though. I will def look up that Amenoreah thing.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn Strangely enough, fainting is in fact common in kids, and is generally considered benign by the medical community--except when it occurs in an exercise setting, which is what is going on with your daughter. When that happens, a tilt-table test is indicated, at the very least. Here's more on that: http://www.dukehealth.org/health_library/advice_from_doctors/your_childs_health/fainting But fainting while swimming is a special case.
Avatar n tn I don't completely understand how that could be NCS because I thought by definition the faintness/fainting was from blood pooling in your legs, yet how could that happen when she is horizontal in the water and her blood is pumping vigorously from exercise? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal).
1323357 tn?1274826939 You might have reduced serotonin due to stress (even if you don't feel that stressed, modern life is pretty stressful in itself) as Tommygunz has theorized - in this case the supplements he has listed will help that re balance but you also need to train yourself out of the over thinking and ruminating habit and try to live day by day as normally and routinely as possible. For most people, the DP dissipates naturally when they are out of the traumatic situation but this is not always the case.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
544292 tn?1268886268 But that's not the most alarming part of Tramadol in my case. In my case the antidepressant that they tacked on to the cocktail is the thing that causes all the rough psychological and mental symptoms. It's a Two Fer One! I've been feeling like I was going crazy for a long time. And in addition to that; the scary suicidal ideation. The suicidal ideation vanished and returns ONLY if I get a flare up of withdrawal symptoms. That happens if I get over stressed.
Avatar n tn I havnt touched alcohol in thirty years, my statement that I have an alcoholic in recovery in the past. My wife in the last year even offered herself to a man with two months to live. Her alcoholic mother was living with the guy, Most of this is becoming reality now, I just confirmed the information, but my wifes affair with a married man earlier had no chance of success, yet she did it anyway. This is part of a cycle that happenes during late relapse.
Avatar n tn My hands and feet are almost always cold (in fact, they are right now), and I fall in and out of relatively mild depression. I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common. I'm still looking for ways to lessen the intensity of these symptoms, but for me I've found that maintaining physical activity helps, as well as not oversleeping, or overeating.
Avatar m tn I drank and used my whole teenage years. Was sent away to a crisis unit, turned 16 in there. I then was placed in a group home for 9 months. I was married at 18 and by 21 i had 2 babies. I took a brief break while pregnant and started drinking the minute i was done nursing. I took pills and drank the next 20 yrs away. Lost custody of my daughter when she was 13 as she got smarter quicker than i did. By this time i had been married 2 times.
Avatar f tn I think this will be helpful to her in the short term, but maybe not in the long term. I am an adult suffering with depression, and as I child I hated school, I was so scared of all the people, I would never talk to anyone all day, in breaks I would stand against a brick wall terrified, and nobody ever got me help.
Avatar n tn Rather, you can do all that, you must stay healthy, don't eat junk food alot, maybe once every two weeks, eat well, go to the gym, proteins, so you would stay in shape. All of these little times you smoke, the other days you should go out with the girls, go to parties have fun, so you're not smoking **** everyday. :) Have fun Tyler, and tell me how high you were when you smoked the weed! :) mohamed.hesham.
503727 tn?1210442710 You and I sound almost exactly the same. I feel dizzy ALOT and I am afraid to be alone or go to a store, When I get in a store I get dizzy, hot and I can feel my heart racing in my chest. I too have had all the various workups for my health and am otherwise fine. I took xanax, and the first pill worked fine then after that they didn't work anymore Now i've started prozac and I feel even worse, everytime I stand up I get the feeling im going to black out. Hopefully this will go away soon.
Avatar f tn I was on them for 6 years or so and have been off them for about 3 months. I have definitely noticed a change in my libido since I stopped...for the better:) I still have anxiety issues, but I know that it is still early and takes time for hormones to readjust. If you can use alternate forms of birth control I would try stopping and see what happens. My period has been on time since I stopped and they have been fairly short and light.
Avatar n tn Last year I got married, bought a house, and became a step mom all within two months! Guess when all of my symptoms started, May, the wedding was in June, house purchase in April, oh and I turned 30 in April too. Maybe all of this was too much for me at once, but it was kind of delayed symptoms if that makes sense? I would love to take the effexor and be done with it, but something inside of me is saying to try the natural herbal way first.
Avatar n tn i am 26 years old i have 3 kids to look after but i feel like i can't do anything right anymore i am nauseated all day very dizzy no matter what i may be doing i have even gotten so dizzy while i was alseep that it woke me up and imedeiately upon waking vomiting i am so tired of the doctors saying it's because you are overweight ,your just stressed or it's all in your head i have begged to have ct /mri's done they respond with well i think you may have vertigo lets send you to a ear doctor i jus
Avatar n tn For almost 1 year now I have had horrible muscle spasms in my abs when I do sit ups. I do a lot of running and other exercise and my abs never tighten up like that any other time other than doing sit ups. Everytime I try to do sit ups I can get through about 10 then the upper right abdominal area completely tightens and feels like a really really bad charlie horse. I'm just looking for any advice or experience with this that anyone can give me.
Avatar n tn Yes I have a family, a hubby and three teenage girls who help a lot! They are my taxi now. My husband is tired of me being sick just as much as I am. He worries about me all the time. I don't understand how some of us get all these debilitating symptoms and most women only get hot flashes?! We are never told about all 35 symtoms only two hot flases and mood swings. I wish that's all I had! My dizziness is worse with a tight head too. My neck and shoulders are soooo tight all the time too.
Avatar n tn ) Since then, I had an US in Feb on the right breast for 4 cysts (no follow up needed at this time) and a mammo on the left side in May for a new lump (cyst). Now in July, had my yearly mammo for which I got the call back for spot compression. I go in on the 10th. I'm doing fine mentally...just wish I didn't continue needing screenings. In march I also had a biopsy of the lining of my uterus (benign). I have conflicting feelings about screening...
