Remember the "Fainting Bridesmaid" Post?

Karma. (Yes, you can laugh at me, do the "na-na-na-boo-boo" dance, or whatever makes you feel good.)

 Okay, so I didn't "faint." I completely lost consciousness. Saturday, I hit the floor-- belly and head escaped injuries-- and was out for a couple of minutes after everything went black and I lost my hearing.

I was rushed to the hospital, and my BP was 90/52 and HR was 54 (I have pre-existing bradycardia, so I wasn't surprised by the HR). They kept me FOREVER, and BP didn't go up with  fluids. (I wasn't dehydrated, in the first place.) Orthostatic BP was fine, so it wasn't that I stood up too quickly or bent over too much.

 

BP stayed low, but stable, throughout my visit. I have been sent home with orders to do practically nothing. I'll try to manage. Wink

    and now how would you feel if you told this to your best friend and she got mad at you for not wanting to wear her 5 inch heels? :)

     

    I'm sorry you fainted. I hope it doesn't happen again!

     To be honest, I'd tell her to use that nice, big stripper heel to f*** herself. ;-)

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble.  But FYI, fainting= loss of consciousness :)  Are you sure you understood your doctor correctly that you're to do NOTHING?  Seems awfully dramatic :-p

    True. I was just trying to distinguish between the "fainting" Southern Belle **hand to forehead** and out COLD.

     Apparently, I hit the floor a la Alan from "The Hangover" (after he got punched in the face).

    At least you can find the humor in the lesson.   I'm sorry your having issues. I have really low BP also. Mine was 96/80 at my last appointment.  Take it easy!

    Nope. Just posting because I was, indeed, speaking out of my *ss, and I can laugh at myself, in retrospect.

     

    But, if you're offering, a chewy oatmeal dark chocolate chip sounds divine.

    Did you see your doctor while you were there? I wonder if you were over exhausted? That had happened to my mom while she was pregnant. She was on her feet for too long and then she said that everything went black and she woke up on a hospital bed.

     

    I sure hope you've got family close by to keep an eye on you, and keep you on bed arrest. Wink
