Sudden fainting while showering, had blurry vision before collapsing, black out for a minute. What could be the cause?

I was in the shower and half way through I fainted. Before I fainted I saw everything blurry and then I just collasped. It was pretty wierd. I was only out for a minute or so but for me it seem like only a second. It never happened to me before and the shower was like any other show I had taken. Do you know why this might have happened?

It is a possible syncope - may be neurogenic. It can happen at times. Since this is a one-time occurrence, you can safely neglect it.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good health.
