Well my week was one of the roughest. No sleep ever since my event that took place aboit five days ago. This had never happened to me before. With that said, I was wondering does anyone have any information, story, or education on fainting or passing out. If it has happened to you before could you share you story or what you think as far as moving forward after something like this happens. Does fainting mean or could this mean a bad warning for life? Can it just easily happen again? Just want someones insight or wisdom on this if you have experienced this. Hope all is well with eveyone.

Hello :-)

I am sorry what happened to you it has shaken you up and gave anxiety a reason to get a hold of you as it does when we have gone through a bad experience

I remember at School when we used to have the assembly in the hall every Morning the amount of time Children would pass out during that assembly well I lost count and they were all fit and healthy but it could have been the heat in the hall , the over crowding anything really that caused it but nothing sinister and I am sure this was just one of those things and nothing sinister why you fainted

Have you see a Doctor and have they given you the all clear ? as long as you have then trying to accept this was one of those things , not easy I know but the fear will get less if you can and the anxiety to

I would imagine if you did a survey that half would say they had fainted at some stage in their life so try not to over think it :-)

Take Care x

Yes I dis get an "everything looks good" with my blood work and eck when I went to the emergency room that night. Im trying to accept it as one of those unfortunate things that just happens to folks from time to time. But i guess because its a fresh incident for me anc one that I always feared, its probably gonna take a while to get over it. I guess my main fear right now is because Im nkt educated on fainting that is this something sinister. But when I did realize that soooo many people have fainted for all sorts of reasons that may not be sinister at all, it does kind of put my mind at ease. So Im trying to look at this as just one of those experiences that just happens to folks. And you're right. If I was to probably do a survey, atleast half of people probably in the world have probably experinced this. Thanms for your reply and encouraging words. And for sharing your story of what you've seen happen.

Hello :-)

I totally get how this will have shook you up it would do that to most people but like I said so many have fainted at least once in their life and you sound like your health is good so try not to worry , eventually the fear will get less and your confidence will come back :-) x

Hi. I’m sorry to hear of your struggles.

I’m not much help with actual stories or experiences of this, sorry.

It could be highly likely in my opinion that this was a one off thing. The problem is when we feel anxious about it, I’ve had things I’m really anxious about and convince myself they will happen. 😩

Maybe some reassurance from a medic would really help you. If you havmt been told already.

Hope over a little more time (it is quite recently it happened so still prominent in your mind)you feel more confident about it all, and in turn that helps to combat the awful anxiety we can feel.

Sorry I’m not a lot more help.

The lack of sleep will not be helping at all. I’m worse when I’ve had no sleep , everything feels so much worse. I would see dr about that, see if you can get some advise.

Sending good wishes your way. X

Thank you so much. You are right. Our minds can convince us that things are about to happen. I did go to the emergency room that samr night it happened and they said everything looks good, my blood work and ecg. And mu anxiety is so bad Im always at an urgent care, my pcp, and er in the last year on several occasions and all have come back clear. Its just I have this little notion that what if from one month to the next, things can change for the worst. So its like they may put my mind at ease at first but after while Im back to thinking what if it has changed now.

But yes I did get a "everything looks good" that night I went.

And yes I havent been to sleep good in a long time. Struggling every other day to atleast get a few hours of sleep.

Oh yes, my mind convinces me all the time....

I’m glad you did get the reassurance from the medics. It certainly helps. Realistically we know we will be ok, our minds aren’t always realistic. Totally get what your saying here. I’m very similar about different things.

We will be ok! The sleep thing is worth a big consideration. Being realistic is much harder when I’m exhausted I find...

You are not alone...
