I have this!!

From: Kris


This has happenend to me for the last 2 years. I experience the same symptoms as described by other patients. I kow exactly what is about to happen and I know that I am about to pass out. I get dizzy , my mouth will begin to salivate, my body gets weak, and I know that it's about to happen. I thought it was because I was hypoglycemic, but sometimes I would have eaten a meal and be fine and it just happens. But most times the sugar helps, if I can get to once I come back around. And it always happens around my period. I am a US soldier and I am very healthy. Is this natural? Could it by signs that something worse is going on?
