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?

What caused me to pass out faster than my normal during a tilt test? My doctor ordered a tilt test to try and find out if I had POTS. I get dizzy and my vision goes black when I stand up almost everytime but it goes away and isn t severe. When I stand for 10-15 minutes I slowly start to get hot and nauseous, and if I were to stand through that I d eventually pass out. My tilt test lasted 4 minutes, 3 of those minutes consisted of my begging to sit down. Almost instantly after I reached an upright position, i started sweating and i got extremely nauseated. My vision my have gone away a bit but I don t quite remember. I threw up and my hearing became extremely muffled. I couldn t feel the blood pressure cuff squeezing my arm. They said I passed out, so I ll take there work for it. Anybody know why it came on so much faster and more intensely that I normally experience?
