Re: passing out for no reason
a big ditto on what AL just mentioned about the ortho hypotension? if you actually got up and went straight to the bathroom, then fainted, it really could have been just that OH. just see how things go over the next couple of weeks. anytime you wake up, try just sitting upright in bed for even like a minute or so before getting up from now on. did you feel at ALL even a bit dizzy before this happened? just how do your particular 'normal' BPs actually run, on the lower side or a bit more up?
this has occured with our son too(this past fall actually) in almost the same exact way yours did. got up to go to the bathroom one morning and boom we found him on the floor, luckily we heard him hit. but he did say he felt a bit dizzy right before he passed out. he was fine after too. the usual "suspects" here in a situation like this would be either the hypotension thing or it can also be a very sudden drop in blood sugar too, even if you are not actually a diabetic? its just the way our bodies will react to certain things. just like i already mentioned? watch yourself and take the precautions so this does not occur again. if you really do not 'feel right" from here on out, i would definitely just get a good check up eval from your doc. better safe than sorry, ya know? hopefully as with my son, this is just a one time thing that happened. please let us know if anything else pops in,K?
