I remember passing out during the middle of a class that I was attending at a local community college. I was sitting in my chair listening to the professor one minute, and then falling out of my chair and hitting my head on the hard floor the next. Oh, the embarrassment of an ambulance coming on the campus to get me!
Fainting seemed to be a pretty regular occurance during my late teens/early 20s. I used to hate the feeling that you get right before it happened. I remember giving blood on multiple occasions and then passing out. One time I gave blood, passed out, and then they took more blood. Another time, I gave blood, then sat and waited for little bit (since I knew I had passed out many times before while giving blood). Once I thought I was ready, I got up to leave, then passed out on the office floor near the door I was about to exit, scaring the little kids in the waiting room. Each time, doctors ran EKGs and other tests, but couldn’t figure out why I would always pass out.
It's still a mystery as to why I have passed out so many times. I believe it was due to low blood pressure, but I'm not positive. I am grateful that it has been quite a few years now since I have passed out .
