A new explanation?



I have always passed out when I am sick, just seemed to go with my bodies reaction to a flu or high fever. But the past 3 years I have noticed something different that puts me in a place of fear.

This is the first time that I am reading about this potential explanation for some experiences I have had the past 3 years. Mine seemed to have begun during menopause. It is associated with my bowels....I get a rush like a fear adrenalin, that moves upward...the back of my arms get very hot and I have a tighting in my jaw. I used to get tingling in my head (left side) that would start the process, then naeusa and then end up in the bathroom.Sometimes I pass out and many times not.

Anyone have similar reactions?
