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.

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.
