orthostatic hypotension fainting\passing out

i've been seing some of these symptoms lately and figured out it was orthostatic hypotension from reading another post
i was just wondering if it was normal to also pass out because after recovering from the dizzyness and the cloudy vision i found myself on the floor and my brother had told me i had fallen

Re: orthostatic hypotension fainting\passing out

Yes, orthostatic hypotension can cause fainting.

I'm guessing you are fairly young (and healthy). There are medications that can cause the problem. Anemia is another one. That would be more likely in a vegetarian. If neither of these apply, it could be as simple as not drinking enough water during the day. Dehydration can affect blood volume which can lead to OH.

If the problem persists, see your doctor.
