Allene Posted August 11, 2011 Report Share Posted August 11, 2011 I imagine this is a big problem for almost everyone with any kind of dysautonomia, but I have major issues getting out of bed in the morning or if I get up at night for a bathroom trip. I almost always have a near-fainting episode, and sometimes I faint just getting out of bed! I don't launch myself out of bed either. I sit up, and sit there for a bit, and then I slowly stand. This doesn't seem to make a difference, but I do it anyway because I'm simply too stiff to get up quickly. Most of my fainting episodes are in the morning getting out of bed.Does anyone have ways they cope with this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
