Im a 28 yr old male.Was havingthe best time of my life until I was out jogging in the summer last year.Felt extreme signs of passing out.Got to the E.R and was told it was dehydration.I havnt been the same since I contantly think im going to pass out.within the late year ive fainted 6 times.Ive had stress test,EKGs,Catscans,Xrays,Blood and urine stool test,You name it everything comes out fine.So the sent me to a Psyhc.I was put on effexor and trazadone.felt no help except sleeping,and not getting up on time.3months ago I fainted again.right after that I had diarria for two months. Stopped the meds and got better I think it was the trazadone.ever since I catch my self feeling faint atleast twice a day.When I feel that way my blood pressure drops around 95/58ish.it only last about 10 to 20 min.Ive had it60/29 that when i do pass out and end up in the E.R by that time it usually raises and i get sent home or get iv for dehydration.I think i panic and do it to myself.Is there anyone out there that feels or has been thru this,worried one day might not make it anyone HELP!!! please:confused:

  • You've been misdiagnosed and you need to get checked for addisons. Sonds like to me you have primary adrenal failure and need to go get a cortisol level done as soon as possible. I'm not joking- don't mess around with it and don't stop with just depression because thats what it is not. you need to be evaluated for this asap before you slip into a coma or go into shock. Go to addisons disease.net (keep us posted)
