I have not been able to read the posts yet due to web dificulties, but just from reading the intro on the welcome page, I can see for the first time that I am not the only person who suffers from this weird condition. I have been passing out since college and I am now 32. As I sit here typing I have a black eye and a busted lip from passing out last night and hitting the ceramic tile floor. At first, when I would pass out, I would realize that it was going to happen because I would get extremely hot and start sweating while sitting on the toilet. Now it seems that I just barely realize what's going to happen before I wake up on the floor. I am glad that it doesn't seem to be happening any more frequently than usual. Before last night, I hadn't done this in over two years. I would really like to hear from others who suffer from this especially if they have found anyone who had a treatment. Please email to
