Thyroid and fainting

I was at the drs Friday and had bloods done for thyroid. Last night went bowling and it was pretty hot but I had a great time. Came home went to bed. Woke up at 2 am to feed baby and when I went to make a bottle...I fainted (but I was still standing...woke up and head was down in sink)..I thought that was strange. Grabbed the bottle and went into babys room and next thing I know I woke on the floor. I hit pretty hard cause my left side face looks like I got beat up.

I get my results tomorrow..I just dont know. I have signs of hypo & hyper. I'm cold (almost always) and sometimes I get really hot...+ other sx.

I was wondering if I should ask for an addisons test.
Anybody else ever faint?

Re: Thyroid and fainting

About a month after one Thy-lobe was removed, but before I started Levothyroixine - I remember ONE weird fainting spell when I was sick with Broncitius & cough.

But I don't know if thyroid & fainting are always connected

Hope the Doc starts FINDING some answers

Re: Thyroid and fainting

Hi Mindaandy

Dont know if this helps at all but I have had fainted many times with Hashimoto's. Doctors feel that it is related but have not found many more people with this symptom. It has happened at work, at a concert, and in my home. Fainting is not something to take lightly. Please see your doctor. He should be informed ASAP. If you are a new mother, it may be related to vitamins, minerals etc. Whatever the reason, you need to be seen and checked out by your doctor. Take care please.

My best, Kath
Hashimoto's - me, mom, sister and new to the sisterhood, my 24 yr old daughter

Re: Thyroid and fainting


I replied to the Addison's thread in depth. I also gave you formulas and the data trends that would indicate addison's or another adrenal/pituitary condition. Keep us posted. We will help.

If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
