Often Faints While Eating?
At noon, I want to ask, before I never fainted at all, the first time I fainted when I was eating at the restaurant, then 1 month later I fainted at my own house while I was eating too. I’ve been to the hospital for my check-up and the results of my health condition are all good and I’ve also had blood tests and the results are good. Yesterday also recently I was eating and almost at that time I was about to pass out again but I was able to endure it. My question is usually what are the symptoms of the disease? Please help and info
Hello Eko, Teirma, thanks for the question.
Fainting is a sudden, temporary loss of consciousness. Usually the sufferer will lose consciousness for 1-2 minutes before finally regaining consciousness. Fainting can be caused by the following conditions:
temporary autonomic nervous system disorders (the nervous system that regulates heart rate and blood pressure) triggered by fear, pain, stress, sneezing
sudden change in body position
side effects of drugs
If this condition occurs every time you eat, it may be a temporary autonomic nervous system disorder triggered by swallowing which causes a drop in blood pressure and heart rate. The stimulation of the esophagus / esophagus causes this disorder (swallow syncope). This condition is one of the conditions that rarely occurs. Usually fainting will be triggered by certain conditions, for example consuming only solid food, consuming only liquid food, consuming both, a certain temperature, or sticky food. Please consult with a cardiologist. The doctor will need to know your complaints, examine you, and perform other examinations such as an EKG and electrophysiological examination of the heart. If it is confirmed that this condition is the cause, usually the treatment recommended by the doctor is the installation of a pacemaker.
Please try to pay more attention to the types of food you consume that can trigger this complaint so that it can be avoided in the future.
Hopefully this information is useful.
