Fainting and falling alseep

It must be stress right? Anyone else have fainting spells? I have 3 in 2 days. I sleep for a long time after. Its confusing, I plan to see the doc this afternoon. Honestly I am preparing myself for tests and then the “all tests look fine.”

Dear Kimberly,

Sorry to hear that you are going through this. Glad to are heading to the Dr, and yes, surely many tests to follow, perhaps even a specialist. Lets hope there ARE answers.

Wishing you well,


Yes, I faint all the time. I'm not sure exactly what it is, as I don't go to the docs or I will lose my driving license (although I don't faint whilst sitting down). I put mine down to stress, blood pressure, fatigue and/or pain. I would like to know how you get on at the doctors. He may refer you to a specialist too.

I know what you mean about the tests coming back fine. It's so annoying and we feel a bit silly but you have to get it all checked out just in case.

I faint also though it is usually after getting up from a stationary period. They attributed mine to my blood pressure but we all know fibro can affect that. Good luck at the doctors. I wish you well!!

Ty all, I will check back after appt

That would scare the heebie jeebies out of me. It sounds like your having seizures cuz typically they exhaust the body and that would be the reason why you get so sleepy after. You don’t have to be flailing around on the ground for it to be a seizure they are called silent seizures. I don’t mean for this to scare you at All but its just my armchair doc guess.is.

My son fainted a few times and it was because between 7th and 9th grade he went from 5’8" to 6’6" they say with his growth was Sooo rapid that his heart wasn’t growing as quick as he was and so when he did stuff like “got up too fast” is bp would drop drastically and so he would pass out.

I hope you find answers soon!

Gentle Hug


Hi everyone, I fainted in the doc office and he sent me off to the hospital. An abnormal ekg has me here over night for a stress test tomorrow. I am at a loss, you all know what I expected. I will check in tomorrow. Thanks for all the kind words.
