Sometimes, I'll have no other symptoms and I'll randomly start feeling very hot and sweaty as a wave of nausea hits and I start to feel faint. They don't happen singularly, always at the same time. These symptoms subside if I sit or lay down for a while (time varies - usually it takes just a few minutes, rarely longer). Does anyone else suffer from this?

To me it doesn't sound like IBS.
To be honest, I've had this but it usually turns into an urge to 'go' then I'm OK. What's your appetite like?
Suggest you contact your GP. Fainting (medical term is Syncope) can happen for a number of reasons.
Hi there I get very hot sweaty feel like I’m gonna faint no nausea tho x
Does it happen to you often? Thank you!
Not really maybe occasionally I suffer constipation , but it your worried you she see a doc as it could me many things including anemia which causes dizziness too x
Hay Rosalngesa, in my experience these do not sound like IBS but Panic Attacks, which for me turn into a flare up of IBS-D for a few days.
Do you keep a diary of each episode which includes what you have eaten and feel with what’s gone on in the past few hours? Perhaps this would identify a pattern?
I use an app called Day One so I can just tell Siri how I’m doing, what I have eaten and how i feel etc. So no need to type a monologue, just talk. I find it very helpful.
Do the docs think it’s IBS ?
Sorry, but are you of Menopause age??
I've had all those symptoms, there's usually pain that tells me my stomach is very unhappy and eventually the hotflushes
Hot flushes go b4 I need to go to the bathroom. I find the pain doesn't stop for sometime. I do however get blind migraines.
Sorry I'm not great on my phone yet, lol. The migraine gives me all the symptoms except the pain, good luck.
Hi there yes I get like that too although it can happen during the day my nauseated symptoms tend to happens at night time .
Yes I agree , I tend to get hot flushes when I lie down in bed and feel nauseated during a flare, it usually goes after a few minutes !
Yes this has happened to me but it usually means I then have a BM. This happened to me on Sunday followed by a seizure but I do have epilepsy. I'm wondering if I have abdominal epilepsy too
You can have what is called a vasovagal syncop on the toilet and some people pass out with this. It sounds a bit like what you are experiencing.
I go very feint on the loo even when no effort involved at all.
Ooh I’ve had the fainting feeling lots times on the throne !!! X
Could they be panic attacks? Or related to menopause or perimenopause? Sorry, but I have no idea what age or sex you are. Definitely through my menopausal years I would get hot and sweaty and feel light headed. Don't recall nausea but that doesn't mean it could not happen.
I'm a 25 year old female!
It sounds as though you may have more than one thing going on. The feeling dizzy could be due to severe constipation, or due to dehydration, which can cause further constipation. I think you definitely need to see your GP or GI team. Good luck, keep well and stay safe.
Maybe. I do suffer from anxiety and panic disorder, but the panic attacks I experience are nothing like the symptoms described. Also, I can always identify a trigger for my panic attacks but when the other faint feeling happens, it comes on at random, unexplainable times. I'm a 25 year old female.
Not what you're looking for?
