I am a 20 yr old female. for the past 3 months I have been experiencing dizzy spells, where I have fainted twice and fought unconsciousness several times. I used to faint sometimes during menstration, but that happened maybe 3 times and it hasnt happened in a while, so I doubt its connected to this. The first time I recently fainted was after sexual intercourse i stood up and immediately passed out. since then, off and on I have had several dizzy spells. One time I was in a stressful situation, and I passed in and out of consciousness, vomiting in between. I have been having a lot of difficulty focusing, and it makes me nervous while driving, I actually did get into a very minor car accident during one of my dizzy spells. I just feel like I am in a constant daze lately. Also, I used to experience headaches just about daily during high school, but I dont experience them nearly as much anymore. Usually I get very brief headache or more pulsing after I stretch at work or stand up. I have not actually seen a doctor about this, does anyone have an idea of what could be causing this? I come from a family with a history of just about every heart problem, diabetes, high blood pressure. When I have had doctors appts, I have had very normal blood pressure and sugars, but I do have high cholesterol. Well, I think thats everything, your thoughts are appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
