I am 43yrs old and i have had 4 fainting spells since I was 18 years old. All of them started when i took a drink from a bottle or Can of pop, and tipping my head back when i do it. I immediately get a pain in my throat that spreads and than i feel faint and pass out for just a few minutes. Twice i knew it was happening and said Here I go. As long as i get down on the floor I am alright when i wake up. This time though which happened Dec 29th 2001 I was at a wrestling tournament and did not want to get on the floor needless to say i ended up there any way with a black eye because i hit a table on the way down to the floor. you can bet that wont happen again No matter where i am at i will get Down. Any one else ever pass out from drinking carbonated pop?? Water does not do this I drink water from sports bottle all the time.
