A few years back i had a spat with my fiance that resulted in me getting excessivly angry to the point that i screamed to the top of my lungs and fell out/ passed out: everything goes silent and my body goes limp and i fall to the floor and as im falling i know i am so im trying to grab hold of what ever is around me so im not falling flat hence forth im comming to with in a few secionds of hitting the floor. So i decided from that day on i wouldnt allow myself to get that angry hoping that would solve the problem however the other day it happened again where i got over whelmed and angry screamed and again fell out.

Hello kriscarlo
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Anger outburst followed by sudden fall, flaccidity in body etc. are the symptoms that should not be overlooked. As the episode occurred about years back so there is no need to visit a doctor for that but if such symptoms occur again I advise you to visit a doctor and get your EEG done and to take expert opinion.

Such episode may be due to excessive stimulation of sympathetic system during anger and sudden hypotension leading to fall.
Or it may be a sign of seizure disorder as sudden fall, passed out, limping of body etc are symptoms of seizure disorder.

Hope I cleared your doubt take care
