I've been having this happen for quite some time and it hardly scares me anymore--now it's just annoying.
Anyway, I'm just curious if anyone else goes through this and if they've found any particular diagnosis with this. I've had one person guess it was vassal vagal, but I would like to get that tested and documented and so-on. I've had several specialists examine me to see if there was any particular reason why this happens, but so far, they've found nothing. I've had doctors either sya that fainting is nothing to worry about or think that I'm somehow doing it on purpose. Even if I'm able to tell how long I have to get somewhere safe before completely fainting, I still don't like being at risk of getting hurt anyway and it's sometimes embarrassing (fainting in line at taco bell is kind of embarrassing to have to wake up to...).
I tend to faint when I experience a lot of pain (and with endometriosis, that's a lot, especially during my cycle), but there are times when it doesn't require pain or I'm too focused in trying to stay conscious or too distracted by the vertigo to know whether I'm having pain or not.
It's not so much that I'm doubting it's simply vertigo (although I've had vertigo described as simply getting dizzy and fainting by no known cause and thus it's untreatable), I just want to make sure that there really is nothing that can be done besides be aware of everything and pray I don't faint in the middle of the street or something, if that makes any sense.
