A few days ago I woke up at 6am to go to the bathroom. A few seconds after sitting down I started to feel dizzy, lightheaded, and nauseous. Almost felt like I was going to black out. This isn't the first time it's happened. It happens probably just a handful of times per year. It only happens when I'm on the toilet (weird I know). When it had happened before I would lay on the bathroom floor and get the cold floor against me and I would usually feel better. I did that same thing a few days ago once I had those feelings but it didn't work. I sat back down on the toilet and it was still there. I decided to maybe drink something with sugar. Maybe my sugar was low ( I had eaten dinner the night before and had popcorn before I went to bed around 1). I don't have low blood sugar but at the time I thought that would help. So I "walked", if you could call it that, to the kitchen and go some of that V8 fruit juice. I took a drink and decided to take the bottle with me because it was almost gone into the living room to drink the rest to try to feel better. As soon as I got into the living room my hand just let go of the bottle, I couldn't hold it anymore. I literally plopped onto the couch and felt as if I was about to black out. I thought that I would go wake up my mom just incase I did pass out. I made my way into her room and woke her up. Her bedroom floor is wood so I laid on the floor. After laying there for about two minutes and breathing as normal as I could I started to feel better. That was the end of that. Like I said that's happened before but that time it was the most extreme and longest it's ever been. The whole thing only lasted five minutes but felt like an eternity. Help
