Do you ever just pass out? Is it that weird to? |
Woke up this morning feeling sick, like I was gettng the flu or something, so I decided to stay in bed, pretty much all day, to sleep it off. Well I didn't get out of bed till 6pm, feeling a little better and walked to the kitchen, where I felt dizzy and knew I'd pass out. I sat down at the kitchen table, but passed out and fell. the next thing I remember is my roomate's boyfriend putting a pillow under my head.
I was sweaty and hot and he said my pulse was weak.
I lay there for a few minutes felt better, but when i stood up and drank some water, had to lie back down on the floor cuz i felt like I'd pass out again.
I'm 25, and this happens maybe once a year, which I guess is frequent, but I wouldn't call it a regular thing. It's not a low blood-sugar feeling or anything.
I told my friend and she said she's never fainted and doesn't know anyone else who has.
So my question is, is it really that weird to faint?
I guess I just figured since I'd been in bed all day, my blood pressure was low or there wasn't enough blood flow to my brain or something.
Anything I can do to feel better? I got up again and felt weak still, so I'm staying in bed, but can't do that forever.
