Fainting

Questions and answers on "Fainting"

I keep fainting, around 4-6 times a day. I'm only out for around 5-10 seconds but it keeps happening and have no idea why. I have psychosis and am on anti-psychotics and anti-depressants and they sort of made me lose my appetite but that's not why. I was in hospital for a week and I had tests but nothing showed up. I had an MRI and CAT scan but they came back clear. The doctors don't know why I'm fainting but I don't want to be in hospital and I'm not sectionable so can't stay there. What do I do because no one has answers

Welcome to HCM

The same problem affecting the heart could also be affecting the brain – ischemia of the brain
There are a few others like Arrhythmia, postural hypotension, anaemia and so on

I was having rapid fluttering heart beats. Then I started fainting. I went to my doctor and my blood pressure was 90 over 60. Blood pressure continued to drop. Dr. Thought I was dehydrated, so he had me drink alot of water and my pressure returned to 120 over 70. This was 3 days ago. I continue to feel tired and a little woozy, I just had blood work and a urine sample taken. What could be wrong?

My son aged 13 yrs. had several episodes of fainting with all biological responses like breathing, heart beat, pulse, temperature seems to be zero or nothing at all.
1. Consulted general physician M.D. children specialist, who first treated for germs or worms in the stomach area, later referred to ENT specialist prescribing an antioxidant with no findings.
2. ENT cleared some amount of wax from the both ears and confirmed that the episodes of fainting is not because of ENT problem. (The boy still feeling some itching in the ears)
3. Later Complete Blood Picture with ESR had been taken, and then the General physician confirmed nothing unusual and reason not traced. He then referred to a neuro physician.
4. Neurophysician prescribed on suspicion of Epilepsy; MRI scan, EEG which also came normal. No reason is apparent.
5. Cordiologist consultation also came negative... no reason identified.

Finally, child specialist suggested us to go for psychological counseling, as this may be on account of anxiety or excessive stress.
As the boy is under no or negligible stress from all 360 degree point of view and other conditions. We've decided to go further into analysis of the problem.

Wheezing in breath, frequent and excessive phlegm formation with difficulty in breathing is observed by us, but these symptoms are for some reason ignored by all specialist focusing more on major symptom of fainting episodes.

As a last hope, resorted to alternate therapy like homeopathy, yoga, naturopathy, and finally accupuncture.

Improvement was shown (still reasons are not known to us).
Accupuncture treatment gave relief with the natural extraction of all phlegm almost automatically and breathing was set alright.. and then episodes of fainting disappeared.

Now, (after a period of 1 month) the symptoms of excessive phlegm formation, shallow breathing (though minimial), restlessness slowly started again. We are left with no clue or treatment, as all reports like ECG, EEG, CBP with ESR and consultations coming normal. The boy's general condition is slowly improving and all of sudden, he is feeling nervous strain, excessive sleep, problems due to phlegm.

Past medical conditions:
1. Previously, at the age of 10 treated with excessive dosage of ofloxacin.
2. Met with an accident and due to which his one eye got damaged, diagonised as internal rupture followed cylindrical vision, nerve infection, and now with unresponsive eye with blurred vision in both the eyes.
3. Got operated for Hydrocel at the age of 7 yrs.

Please advice us on the follow-up action, tests to be performed to exclude masking reasons and identify the reason for right diagnosis. Advice on care to be taken in the mean time.

doctor1 MD

1. you have mentioned about every report, what about chest X-ray? because as you said wheezing is there.
2. As every other Lab Investigation came out to be normal, disease affecting these systems could be possibly ruled out.
3. As you said: there is no or negligible stress ADHD is ruled out, even...

Hello. I had a question regarding adrenaline rushes. I tend to get them very easily and It some what concerns me because I know that excessive stress on the heart can be bad. It is not always a physical trigger but a mental trigger as well, as far as my adrenaline rushes. I am a 22 year old male and I find then when I am lift weights during exercise that my heart rate almost becomes slower when I am pushing myself, but the beat is definitely more stronger. So I know that my blood pressure is going up, but my heart rate seems to be not. This in return can give me the feeling of fainting. However, I find that when I do cardio exercise such as running my heart rate increases normally and I dont experience any syncope. This just concerns me and I do not know if it is normal or not and it prevents me from pushing myself during exercise. Thank You
