Thanks for all of your concern. It doesn't happen that often maybe every couple of months and like I said I normally recover very quickly depending on how low the BP has dropped. It is usually after I haven't gone for a couple of days. This has been going on for the past couple of years but the doc chalked it up to the horrible pain and put me on donnatol for the cramping.
Lisa, all three of my sons are in emergency medicine so they had all told me about the bearing down thing to get BP down. The one close by also is a deputy coroner, if he can't save you he will investigate your death. He found out that people get a little nervous when a deputy coroner is standing around the ER.
My poor hubby told our doc he had to find out what was going on cause I scared the crap out of him this time. I know I have had a lot more anxiety since then and I'm afraid to eat anything unless hubby is home cause that is when the IBS acts up. Of course the whole time I had the monitor on I didn't feel the least bit lightheaded. I don't go back to the doc til the end of the month unless I have more problems. He did mention doing an EEG and MRI of my brain to rule out anything going on up there.
luv and hugs
