I am a 36 year old female. In August after loosing my Grandmother,a stressfull week at the fair (I am a 4-H advisor) and working 12 hours a day after that and volunteering on the Fire/Ambulance service here in my home town. I to had an episode. Not sure if it was my first or not I used to pass out years ago but not like this. I was asleep on the couch and went to the bathroom, once in there felt sick. I yelled for my husband, which was still up, and told him I was sick to call for the Paramedic on our squad, he hesitated, and then I told him to step out that I was going to be sick. I don't remember anything from there. He said that I hit the floor he came in picked me up and put me back on the toilet, I lost control of my bowels, was unresponsive, couldn't get a BP on me, was barely breathing. The had to bag me all the way to the ER. We live about 35 minutes for the hospital. I was unresponsive for an hour and a half. I woke up in intensive care. The hospital never did diagnois me I switched my family doctor after he told me in the hospital that it was just stress and a migrain. My new doctor took one look at my reports and sent me to Columbus, OHio where I did the tilt test. Possitive. I haven't really had a good day since. What is your normal days feel like?
