Hello and thanks in advance for any help. My girlfriend and I have been trying to figure this out for a while and we still have no idea how to help her condition. She has pretty bad asthma, but rarely-to-never has asthma attacks because she uses a long-term type of inhaler (not fast acting). Anyways, when she get these fainting spells she becomes weak, her vision begins to fade, as well as hearing, etc. (common fainting signs), but she doesn't go out cold, it is more of her NEEDING to sit down immediately, and usually after 5-15 minutes of sitting, it passes. She also says that when she puts her head between her legs it helps. She also tells me she can feel it coming on at least 10 minutes or so in advance if she hasn't eaten enough. Also, I'm not sure where this comes in, but on the occasion that we smoke marijuana, she usually the exact same symptoms come on. I wonder if it has something to do with a drop in blood pressure, or some sort of glycemic condition. She doesn't have any other diagnosed conditions (except asthma). and She is pretty thin and tall. Thanks again for any help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
