Fainting!

I know you can look all over the internet but it really just tells you the same thing.
And I don't really want the same answer again.

Why do people faint?

I know it is a bit stupid but I kind of need to know why it could keep happening.

It is kind of worrying.

    It can happen for lots of different reasons, illness, stress, lack of food, etc,

    I'm no expert though so i dont know all the scientific details, haha, but if its happening to you, you should see your GP about it. :)

    Either a drop in blood pressure or a sudden drop in your heart rate.
    I've fainted a few times in the past, had a load of tests done at the hospital but they didnt find anything to help.
    Best bet is to get checked out by a doctor, they may not even find anything but at least you can rule out anything serious.

    Low blood pressure or low blood sugar are two fairly common reasons.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Oh and I spend my whole life feeling dizzy.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Thanks.
    Well in the bloods I think they checked for anything wrong.

    im gonna get straight to the point...you have a eating disorder. you have said several times on this board you do.

    now, ASSUMING you are still not eating properly then there is your reason.

    if you are eating properly then um, i don't know, sorry.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Well basically they have never said that, that could be the reason. They have never acctually specified that is the reason. So thats why I am kind of confused.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Supose.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Probably. But it is easier said than done.
