Began with getting dizzy spell, then ears started ringing really bad. Had to sit down. Vision started to get dark, felt nauseous and started getting a cold sweat. Couldn't stand, see or hear for a couple minutes. Whole episode lasted for about 10 minutes.

It used to happen to me every once in a while. Mine was always low blood pressure/sugar. Sit down, drink some water and eat something healthy. Keving67

The only other time this happened was years and years ago after a blood sample (they took alot) was taken. Was standing at the counter paying my bill and all of a sudden it was like someone hit the mute button. I could see the womenz mouth moving but no sound coming out, tunnel vision and almost fell on the floor. The only thing I could think of when it happened today was "SHIT! I don't have health insurance anymore! WTF am I gonna do?"

I concur. And when your blood sugar is low, there is nothing healthier than a huge bar of chocolate (nuts, caramel, nougat, etc. are optional).

Could be anything from low bloodsugar level (did you eat/drink enough before the incident?) to a vagal collapse. The last can happen due to heat, an alcoholic drink sinking in the wrong way or a large meal eaten too fast. What happens a nerve, the culprit being the nervus vagus, gets overstimulated. Which lowers your pulsefreq, BP. You get dizzy, start seeing stars or black. Get all tingly and nauseous. And if all works out you collaps. Happens to everyone from time to time. 7 out of 10 of the "respond to a patient unresponsive, pale/sweating possible cardiac arrest" seem people shook up pretty bad at the sight of their company collapsing right after they had a nice meal in a good restaurant. Then again, I didn't see get into the spell. Didnt' see you afterwards and don't know your med background. And an internetDoc I ain't [;)]

You can also stimulate a vagal response when you, ummmm, strain or bare down in order to pass a particularly stubborn stool. Lowers the heart rate, often dramatically, sometimes fatally. I can't count the number of cardiac arrests I have been to that have occured on the crapper. Just an interesting(?) tidbit.

GO GET YOUR DUMBASS CHECKED OUT! This may sound selfish, but I don't want to be sitting here one day asking the board;"I wonder what Imbroglio would have had to say about this"?

Been there, done that. You are describing precisely what happens in a sudden loss of blood pressure. Not fun, is it? Was it preceded by any gastric discomfort?
Link Posted: 7/20/2002 6:33:39 AM EST
Loss of blood pressure or an acute stroke.

Venerial Disease? Oops, uh, sorry.......

It could be blood pressure related, poor blood sugar regulation, or anxiety (panic attack). Only a visit to the doc will tell for sure.

Well, that sure as hell might do it. How many cans of Rust-Oleum do you go through a day? Tyler

Had that as a kid happening quite frequently (ages 10 through 15 or so), caused by Sudden Growth Syndrome (1), especially in combination with Morbus Bonus Erectus (2). Took up smoking and coffee to get the BP up, I'm fine since then *cough cough* How old are you? (1) Yes, I made that name up just now (2) Made that one up, too.

Can I have your 10/22 and .38?

Bascially the blood was cut off from your brain. Its actually kind of interesting sensation. The ringing and the vision going is wierd. The color usually goes first then your in a tunnel. Then lights out! Youre having a vasovagal reaction. The blood return is being hampered cutting off fresh blood to your brain. Magnum is correct this does happen frequently to pregnant women. You have to make sure it isnt a heart condition. Youll get the same effects from the heart not beating correctly. Youll need a ECG and a Holter monitor for 24hrs. Are you sure you just didnt see the Beekeeper or LT naked?

This is more likely to happen if you eat a big meal and extert yourself physically right away. Theres a reason your mom told you not to swim right after you ate.

I guess I'm the only one who thinks it's a reaction to all that stuff you are always smoking. [8P]

I would agree with ARDOC and make sure this is not some kind of transient cardiac dysrhythmia. I would doubt hypoglycemia as an immediate cause unless you were a diabetic.

Sounds too much nitrous oxide, never mind. Lot boy you are too funny, I wonder have you tried that? Ill just stick with internet porn.
Link Posted: 7/20/2002 1:19:32 PM EST
Seriously, go see a doctor about this, even if you have to sell your 10/22.

I have to agree with Operatorerror and Kuiper. Sounds like a stool induced overstimulated nervus vaginal response problem. Seriously, if it lasted over 10min and scared ya enough to post about it; go see a Dr. If you were out drinking the night before, I would'nt worry about it.
