thanks for choosing healthcaremagic.See there could be plenty of reasons.First of all get your blood pressure checked.Some time poor oral intake due to some reason could have lead to low blood pressures and lead to fall.Vice verse is also possible means high blood pressure can also be there.Other cause include stress etc.Get in tough with your doctor and get examined.Do not be scared be informed.

be aware as syncope in my grandpa resulted in brain stroke, we neglected it, we took him late to the hospital. his BP was high and had a brain stoke so i advice you to get tested and checked with doctor. not to neglect syncope.

I have black out or fainting spells. I was told that I suffer from vaco-vaso syncope. I was also told my body does not produce enough of it s own salt. Normally, I have a spell and then I won t have one again for awhile, months, even a year. I passed out yesterday at home and then again today while on the bus. The strange twist to this was I also was vomiting, all water. I am getting scared now to be out in public by myself. What else could be wrong?
