    Re: Question about passing out...

    Halcyon: Sometime when you have a moment, do a "Google" search for "vasovagal syncope". I had the same thing happen to me under almost identical circumstances several years ago, and that was the diagnosis. I remember coming to and thinking "man, I'm going to go out on the bathroom floor, like Elvis".

    But I had it checked out by a real doctor, and so should you.

    Re: Question about passing out...

    Update:
    I kept my appointment today. Everything went well. My blood pressure was perfect (120/80), lungs seemed fine, pulse and heartbeat were normal. They ran an EKG on me which, thankfully, showed nothing funky happening. I was diagnosed with exactly what chico described. Dr. said it shouldn't be a problem unless it happens again in which case I'm supposed to report back to him immediately. They also did some lab/blood work or something that I suppose I won't know the results of for a while anyways but he said he did not expect to find anything weird. Just thought I'd let anyone who might be interested know.

    The worst thing I heard while in the Doc's office was, "...you're relatively young...". I coulda done without the italicized word.

    I have passed out a few times and all of them fit the description I ran across. I'll have to check this out a little more tonight and then ask my current Dr. about this ... I have a scheduled appt in a few weeks.

    I had myself checked out a few knockouts ago but they couldn't really find anything. I passed out at a Buckeyes tailgate this year ... the lifesquad came over and I registed fine for blood-sugar, blood-pressure, pulse, etc.

    Thanks,

    GL
