i think , this happened because of vasodilatation caused by overheat so the blood will go to the inferior part of the body(legs) and left superior part(brain) which lead to dizziness and faint

I am 82. I fell in the yard while watering flowers. On June11, I fell directly on my face. I do not remember falling until the second before impact. I saw green grass, heard a thud, moved my head as sunglasses nose piece cut my nose in 3 places. My garden hose was on spray setting and was spraying on my body. I laid there several minutes, then checked to see if I had anything broken. My face began to swell as I hit my right eye socket, right chest area. I began to roll toward the garden hose reel container, when I neighbor appeared. He got me a lawn chair si I could pull myself up and sit down. My nose had blood clots hanging and neighbor s cleaned me. My doctor and I cannot find a cause of my falling. I had ekg, neurology exam, and a 24 hour EKG. I am going to PT and slowly getting better. My DPT, is a doctor of PT. she uses Grafton tools and message and exercises. Next week she will do dry needles treatment. I do not remember falling, Ido not remember if I was dizzy. We are trying to figure out why I fell. It was 1:30 PM. I did not trip, I just found myself face down and had fallen Any suggestions?

On 1st December whilst walking the dog, I just collapsed for no apparent reason. My legs didn t buckle - I just fell on my face. Can you offer any suggestion why? Having cracked my cheekbone, and suffered from double vision through muscle damage (which has now cleared up), extensive facial bruising, I am now OK apart from sometimes feeling fuzzy and loss of confidence. I am 78
