This is really strange. It usually happens in the middle of the night. I will get up out of bed, head to the bathroom, start having a bowel movement, then almost immediately I start sweating profusely, feel sick to my stomach and have shallow breathing. The last time this happened, I tried to make it back to bed to cool off under the fan, but blacked out and fell to the floor like a sack of potatoes. I cracked my head on my hopechest and thats when I started to come out of it. It was just a matter of seconds. (So says my husband) This fainting spell has only happened once. Usually I make it back to bed (barely). Does anyone have this occur to them? I would really like to know what's going on with me. Any ideas?
