How To Deal With Recurring Weakness And Fainting?
I want to ask my mother about 10 years ago, she fell in the bathroom but did not experience external bleeding but internal bleeding, my mother has a history of hypotension, until now my mother routinely goes to a neurologist once a month for injections besides that until now she still continues to take medications such as for example blood thinners, because of my age too, my mother often drops weakly or faints when it is late in the afternoon or evening, I feel sorry, I want to try a treatment and I read that there is herbal royal jelly from one of the products, but I had read that Can you consume it carelessly, especially if there is a history of hypotension, do you think there are suggestions for treatment?
Hello Tri, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Recurrent fatigue and fainting should be identified in advance. Fainting can occur due to temporary interruption of blood flow to the brain. The following are some of the possible causes of fainting:
Vasovagal syncope or neurocardiogenic syncope. Causes of vasovagal syncope include seeing blood or drawing blood, seeing body wounds, standing for long periods of time, the air is too hot, sudden high emotions, straining too hard, etc.
Orthostatic hypotension, which is a temporary drop in blood pressure that occurs due to changes in position, for example changing positions from sleeping to standing. Orthostatic hypotension can occur due to dehydration or lack of fluids, the use of certain drugs such as antihypertensive drugs, diuretics, etc., uncontrolled diabetes, alcohol consumption, and many more.
Disorders of the nervous system, for example epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, TIA (transient ischemic attack)
Disorders of the heart and blood vessels, such as heart rhythm disorders, heart valve disorders, cardiomyopathy, carotid artery blockages, and so on.
Other causes such as psychiatric disorders, metabolic disorders (eg hypoglycemia)
If indeed fainting often occurs in your mother, you should first confirm the cause of the fainting to her neurologist. The neurologist can also refer your mother to a cardiologist to make sure that there is no particular heart disorder causing the symptoms she is experiencing.
Some that can be done at this time include:
Make sure your mother drinks an adequate amount every day (at least 2-3 liters a day)
Eat adequate amounts of nutritious food
Get enough sleep and rest
Avoiding emotional or physical stress
Avoiding sudden changes in position, especially from a lying or sitting position to a standing position
Avoid standing for too long, or if you have to stand for a long time, stand with your feet moving
That's the information I can provide, hopefully it will be enough to answer
