Re: Restaurant episodes

From: lcmallabar and three episodes


i have had three meals with one total blackout and an ambulance ride with no blood pressure reading the whole way to the hospital. the first two were a sensation of going to black out and I went out in the freezing cold and sat in the snow. I did not pass out, but this third time, there was not enough time to get outside for cold air. I do have to run through the tests to rule out other possibilities of this awful burden of v-v-s but i think the gatorade is a good idea to drink plenty of fluids and eat bananas and "zoloft" especially when dining out for fear after eating a good meal will harm you. why this is happening is a mystery because I could always go the distance and now I am feeling limited because i may fall down and one of these times I may get hurt. the bathroom I fell in was clean and I am thankful for day had a message and i have to admit I did not drink enough water like I am suppose to.I am missing quite a few days from work but I think it is good to get checked out and after all is said and done to keep the water and salt levels good and healthy diet and Godluck I call it to not have any more of these awful attacks.God bless all who read and are seeking help. this is a new one for me and I am only 51yrs old.
