I'm not really sure why but I have frequent fainting problems (1-2 times a month), the fainting episodes come at very unpredictable random moments. I have gone to the docter to try and get the problem resolved but not much is being done. My symptoms usualy include:

Dizziness
Ringing Ears
Loss Of Vision
Nausea
Shivering
Body Tingles

Generally I can predict when I am going to faint because when every my ears start to randomly ring I know an episode is about to happen. I have about 10 seconds after the ringing starts to lay down or I will pass out. Even if I sit down after my ears start ringing I will pass out and fall off the chair (learned after many experiences), if I can get to the laying position before I faint it takes about 5 minutes for everything to pass over. If I do hapen to faint I wake up about 1-2 minutes later.

I also get frequent nose bleeds, which im not sure is related. I have been having these problems for about 4 years now, and day to day its getting worse. Hopefully someone might have some imput on what could be wrong with me, and I can try and find something to stop this problem. Thanks

Katy

  • This might sound like an obvious think to consider, but it is often overlooked:how many glasses of pure water do you drink every day?

  • That's it- milk and juice won't cut it :(. I used to have bad nosebleeds due to "dryness" in the air. I discovered that drinking a tall glass of cold water actually stops the bleeding.I have seen it in my family, people fainting and taken to the ER and being given all tests just to find out that they were dehydrated.Milk is toxic and Juice (specially pasteurized) is toxic too.There is great research on the subject of milk and juice as disease causing products.I am actually reading a book on water deficiency and preventive medicine.Your brain is 1/50th of your body weight but gets 20% of your blood circulation. The brain is 85% water- so he gets priority- so your other functions get jeopardized by the shortage of water.Drink 10 glasses of water everyday- see if anything changes.Best.

  • Water does not have side effects, unless you don't allow yourself to urinate.It is probably the toxins in your system that are giving you the headaches as your body can now push them out of your system. Maybe your body is trying to say "keep it coming". People think that dry mouth is the only sign of dehydration. I usually don't feel thirsty until I drink the second glass of water.If you study a little bit of colon cleansing theory and endotoxemia, it will make sense. It is sign of cleansing.Make sure you eat too- as your body needs salt.So sorry about the headache.If you happen to drink caffeinated drinks regularly or sweet drinks every day, it might be "withdrawal".Take Care.

  • So sorry, try putting an ice pack on your head. It will help the body to regulate itself.
