didn't lose conciousness, but the legs went out from under me.
I'm okay now, but I'm wondering if this will happen again.
No, just as long as you don't run for president again, Mittens.
Now go away...
Seems like a no-brainer to me, but you should probably call your doctor tomorrow.
Had you just gotten up from a chair or a bed? Light-headedness is not unusual in that situation, because of lack of blood flowing to your head. Your not losing consciousness is a good sign.
If it recurs, you might wish to chat with your physician.
You're pregnant... with a brain tumor.
thanks R2 and R3.
and, R3, no, I hadn't just gotten up; the room I was in was very warm, however.
Maybe you haven't gotten over the election yet.
Are you a Republican?
It's definitely Donkey AIDS.
I fainted yesterday
I farted today.
Op dear please go to a doctor
OP = Ginny in Billing
Are you an embittered Tennessee William heroine? Do you often have the vapors? Are you oozing with just below the surface sexual tension? Please expound. TIA!
This can be any number of things, including high or low blood pressure. Go to the doctor.
Can I have your iPod?
Are you male or female?
How old are you?
What were you doing at the time and in the hour and in the 10 hours before you fainted?
Had you eaten?
Had you kept up your fluids?
Have you recently donated blood, changed medications?
Happened to me a few years ago, quite a surprise. Turned out it was a mild stroke (TIA.) I've had one or two since without losing consciousness. I was 63. Upping the BP medication dose seemed to stop them.
I know two people who fainted, and they died. Seriously.
Things that make fainting or dizziness more likely:
1. Not having enough fluids in your system.
2. Not eating enough recently.
3. The room being warm or hot and stuffy.
4. An illness.
When you're getting choke-fucked, remember the safe word.
It's dehydration and exhaustion. Trust me.
Every tweener junkie in Hollywood as per their PR team
R19, I'd eaten -- twice. Am regularly drinking overpriced water.
But the room WAS hot and stuffy!
R21, I WISH!
Will call doc tomorrow.
Thanks those of you who show genuine concern!
Those of you who were pricks -- fuck off!
Those of you who told bad jokes -- FUCK off!
You poor dear!
If I were there next to you, I'd have given you a vicious face slapping to wake you up, and then thrown a glass of ice water in your face, to freshen you up.
R24, maybe....how strong are your slaps?
And more importantly, what do you look like?
OP - What are you not telling us?
See a doctor. That's how MS can start out.
R16, probably not telling you lots of stuff...
but I am going to follow R27 and others' advice and see my doctor.
Two days later and am feeling fine.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
