User :   i'm a 13 year old girl and i have anemia. and i usually get dizzy and everything turns black, but i'm still awake and i can hear and feel everything that is going on around me until the blackness starts fading out again, it usually only lasts for a few seconds. it always happens. but last night i was just hugging my dad in front of my bed and he asked me something, then all i could remember was answering while everything was turning black and i was closing my eyes. i have no idea what had happened cause i only remember waking up on the bed seconds later and dad asking if i was okay. everything looked blurry and my whole body was shaking (i think. at least that's how i felt) and i was trying to stop it. i wasn't even thinking and had no idea what was going on when i answered with a no. but then everything came clear and most of my body stopped shaking. i don't know how long exactly was i out, because i didn't even feel anything. my dad tested my pressure and sugar ranges and levels and it was: pressure; 100/60. sugar; 112. my dad said they were ok, but why did happen to me? if it matters, i am not on my period. the last time i had it was about 2 weeks ago and it stopped about a week ago (i usually get it for about 7 days). but it wasn't any heavier than it usually is. somebody told me that it could possibly heart arrhythmia, but i don't know what is really wrong with me. so can you please help me?
