Ive had many a bump on my head mainly when i was a kid, I didn't no what was happening or how to deal with it and i would just pass out on the toilet, coming round when my mum was dragging me out to the garden to get some fresh air. I'm a relatively healthy 32 year old. Ive explained my symptoms to may doctors but still no answers. Ive just read about vasovagal syncope and it does sound like it could be that. I'm going to print it off and show the doctor. It is more severe when i haven't had a bowl movement for a wk or so. Ive never had regular bowel movements and often go a wk with out going so Ive just started taking senokot when i haven't been for a while in hope that this will work. thanks for your advice
Man, you have been going through this since you were a kid. plus the no bowel movements for a week at a time...must be stressing you out big time. I wish you all the luck. You sound like you might be from the UK? if you are, I wonder what type of medical system is over there and why you haven't been properly diagnosed yet?
Yes i am from the UK and from my experience the medical system is rubbish, it didn't help that my mum never took me to the doctors about it when i was a kid. Its becoming more frequent as I'm getting older and the attacks are more severe, its driving me nuts!!
To be honest i had given up with the doctors but now Ive read these articles I'm going to definitely go again
it isnt great here either..I was afraid to death to even go to the emergency room because I have such a high deductable on my insurance. I really wish you all the luck in the world.. Sux that we have to look to the internet because we arent getting the help we need. and i hear you on the mother thing, I should have had this heart murmur fixed when I was nine, not twenty..Mother's decision..
Please keep me updated. I will do the same with any tests I get done or whatever.
hi ican understand your worry i too have terrible bouts of ibs pain i too have tried to go to the toilet only to fall of in bath of sweat the pain from my bowel is excrutiating and i have actually passed out with the pain. my doctor says it is not life threatning but as i get older i fear this is going to kill me off.
yer thats just what im worried about. i cant see my body is going to take it when i get really old.
