Is it possible to be incapable of fainting?
This is a weird thing I've noticed over my life. I currently suffer from POTs and low blood pressure, which can often cause fainting (especially when you have it as bad as I do) but I've never actually fainted, and it was the main reason it too so long for someone to diagnose me with it. I've literally had low blood pressure of 60/40, possibly lower, and still been conscious. It just doesn't seem normal. I also had extreme iron deficiency anemia when I was younger, and my doctor who diagnosed it was literally surprised I was still standing and walking around yet alone conscious. Is it possible that I literally can't pass out? I've come very close, especially that one time my blood pressure was 60/40, but... never actually passed out cold. I just get really incoherent and slur my words and stumble around, like I'm super drunk or something.
Am I just one tough kid, or could I have something different? My doctors don't seem to think much of it, but I know there's a lot of things out there they don't always think of and I'm more or less just wondering if there's anyone else out here who's experienced this kind of thing.
P.S. I was also diagnosed with mild autonomic dysnfunction. Not sure if that could have something to do with it...
