  • Have you considered asking your physician about something called NARCOLEPSY?The internet has a lot of information on NARCOLEPSY, but yourphysician is probably the best source for accurate information.

  • Does your blood pressure drop when you faint? Do you lose consciousness? Has anyone ever tested your oxygen saturation when you faint? (Easy test with a clip onto your finger, most ER's and doc offices have them). Can you make yourself faint? Are you on any medications or vitamins? Diabetes? Addison's?

  • You're a fainter and you just have to live with it....Out of the mouths of western docs...ahahhaa Find NAET/Bioset therapy. I was fainting too....very low BP at times. I had severe chronic fatigue syndrome and had "spells" with many symptoms exploding at once...the end result...fainting. I have had 6 Bioset treatments and my symptoms are gone. No more fainting...no more spells. if you let me know where you live, I will help find someone for you.. Go prove those doctors wrong...I did. They told me I'd never work again and had me applying for SSDI at age 39...no chance. I went for accupressure and my symptoms are gone. I'm now going back to work. Best regards,mommy cat:)

  • What I meant about "making yourself faint" was...Can you manufacture a situation where you are certain to faint. Such as standing up fast, bending over etc. Have you ever fainted at the doctors office? I think You need to be hospitalized, hooked up to a monitor, blood pressure and oxygen saturation machines etc. Your physical parameters should change if you have witnessed syncope. (fainting). Narcolepsy as a possible diagnosis is interesting, as a symptom of it is called cataplexy. "The most severe attacks result in a complete loss of tone in all voluntary muscles, leading to total physical collapse in which patients are unable to move, speak, or keep their eyes open. But even during the most severe episodes, people remain fully conscious, a characteristic that distinguishes cataplexy from seizure disorders. Although cataplexy can occur spontaneously, it is more often triggered by sudden, strong emotions such as fear, anger, stress, excitement, or humor. Laughter is reportedly the most frequent trigger." How exactly do you feel when you faint? Dizzy? Nauseated? Just a black-out? No warning?

  • The money you will spend on treatment with NAET, even going to Australia...will be much less in the long run.Western med will have you tested time and time again with no results and lots of money out of pocket for co-pmts and prescriptions.Want a real test?...Ask him to test you for mycoplasma. It's a great place to start when dealing with western docs.I dealt with western docs for a long time...I'm a nurse.None of them figured me out. Thousands of tests,literally...I have three ring binders full of medical testing results)...and still had NO answers. NAET/Bioset works and it will help you. Telling someone that they are just a fainter is absolutely absurd. I'm sorry that happened to you. I'm here...mommy cat:)
