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?
My sister hit her head when she got dizzy and fainted and hit her head on the sink she is now REALLY sick and she claims the when she coughs or walks or sneezes her head seriously hurts she says it hurts so much she need to got to the hospital should I take her to the hospital and get it checked or is this really normal.
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?
