My daughter has a history of fainting but hers is related to anxiety especially if it has anything to do with physician visits, blood draws etc. One time she fainted and had a seizure so she was transported by ambulance to the hospital and went through all the tests. Her final dx was Vasovagal syncope. Vasovagal syncope occurs when your body overreacts to triggers, such as the sight of blood or extreme emotional distress. The trigger results in vasovagal syncope — a brief loss of consciousness caused by a sudden drop in your heart rate and blood pressure, which reduces blood flow to your brain.
At the time her Dr. told her the minute she feels the sx. as you described to lie down flat whereever she is even if it is on the floor. She always has her lab work down while laying down. :)
Glad you recognize your sx and sit down or lay down. It sure beats taking the chance of being hurt when fainting.
TOE, that is great and I did know your spelling was just a bit different on some words. My bubble test was normal. So nobody can say I am a half a bubble off ~ silly joke !
The only thing found in all my testing is that I have Factor V Leiden. Factor V Leiden is a common inherited genetic disorder that can increase your chance of developing abnormal blood clots (thrombophilia), usually in your veins. This would not be the cause of the TIA however.
Hope your day is awesome and again I enjoy talking with you.
