I've had random black outs happen to me within three years. The most recent ones happened while I was drinking, but not getting drunk. I kind of have an idea of when their about to happen because I start sweating like crazy. The other night I drank some rum, not enough to get me drunk or even tipsy. I started getting really hot, sweating, and I noticed my pulse was very fast. I began to get up and walk to the bedroom when I blackout in the kitchen. My body just fell and I lost vision. My friend helped me up and asked if I had too much to drink, which I replied no and I black out again. This time I was out for a couple of minutes. No one really knew what to do. I just sat up and tried to stand. Once I did that I threw up only once and sat down. After like ten minutes I was fine, but kind of loopy. I wasn't saying words right and I kept feeling light headed I guess. Another time I was at a friend's birthday party with their family. I didn't drink alcohol or anything. I began to feel light headed, so I started walking inside and I blackout in front of everyone. They asked if I was on drugs or drinking, and I wasn't. Other times that I have blacked out is after sex. One time after sex I had a sharp pain in my chest, so I got up to lay down and blacked out. Another time after sex, I almost blacked out but didn't my vision just had like black spots everywhere, but something happened to my ears. All I heard was static or like rushing water. My boyfriend said he couldn't hear anything, but that's all I could hear. I had to yell to over power the noise I was hearing. I haven't been to a doctor yet because the only doctor I do go to is Patient First, and they just always don't seem to care basically. So any ideas or reasons for this would help. I do plan on going to the doctor soon though.
