Causes Of Frequent Fainting?
Why do I like to suddenly faint, but at least I sometimes get dizzy before I like to play with my clap, but sometimes it’s okay, doc, but I still faint, doc, why? 17 years old, could that be the cause, please answer and explain, doc?
Hi Yudha, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fainting, or syncope, is a temporary loss of consciousness usually associated with a lack of blood flow to the brain. This can occur because blood pressure is too low or the heart is not pumping enough blood to the brain. So the next thing to think about is what causes these two things. Among others are:
Severe stress Dehydration or lack of fluids Fatigue Heat stroke Standing too long Changing positions from sitting to standing too quickly Certain neurological diseases Heart disorders
So in your case, actually a history of hitting the head is rarely the cause of syncope but you should check yourself with an internal medicine specialist or neurologist, especially if you also feel chest pain, palpitations, have a family history of the same complaint, and happens while exercising.
Your doctor will first assess for any signs of an emergency related to an organ such as the heart. What you have to say is that you've experienced this more than once. Meanwhile you should reduce your activity, avoid stress, don't hold back hunger, and get some rest whenever you feel like you're about to pass out. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
