I am a 20-year-old female. Today, for no reason at all, I nearly fainted. As far as I know, I do not have any significant medical history that could lend reason to this, except that it has happened once before when I was 15. What concerned me the most was that I had no idea whatsoever as to why it was happening. My first thought was the heat, but I had been standing inside of a nice cool bank for about ten minutes, and then I suddenly felt dizzy, and began to black out, became very hot and sweaty, and I could hear my heart beating in my head. After I sat down, I felt fine about ten minutes later, but I was (and am) still confused!! I am naturally, what i call, a very neurotic person, and I more often than not have anxiety attacks and stress a lot about things, and I don't know if that could have anything to do with it...any answers??
