My boyfriend suffers from blackouts. They only last a very short time - less than two seconds probably. His head falls back and he gets a momentary loss of consciousness. When they happen he jerks and shakes his head in shock as if he's just been woken suddenly from sleeping. They happen at random times in the day and in all kinds of places and situations.
I am worried about him and would like to know more about this kind of thing as I've searched the internet and can't find anything specific to this problem. A lot of sites mention alcohol but he doesn't drink that much. He suffers from depression and has been on valium for several years so I wondered if that might have something to do with it, like a side effect. Other than that I can't think of anything. He seems pretty healthy to me. :confused:
