Fainting, sudden darkened vision, weakness, low energy, disoriented. Side-effect of taking Vitamin C in empty stomach?

i joined stressful military training and i experienced fainting and my vision sometimes suddenly darkened and almost collapsed many times even just standing. Is it because I took vitamin c before the start of exercise with an empty stomach? i sometimes experience being weak or lack of energy, feeling cold, and somteimes disoriented.

Hello Friend..
Thanks for your query to Health Care Magic..

I resd your concern and your symptoms of fainting and weakness is not due to Vitamin C , Its all due to lack of energy and main cause of fainting is due to hypotension or can be due to Hypoglycemia due to demand of excess energy by your body.
Have plenty of water and also energy drink will help you to fight against fainting symptoms and I suggest you to get checked for fasting blood sugar level .

Hope this information Helps you .
Thanks & Take Care..
