Dizzy Dame Posted October 17, 2005 Report Share Posted October 17, 2005 Hey guys, About ten minutes ago I had total vision loss when I sat down on the toilet. I sat down and suddenly (as I was sitting) my heart began to beat very hard, but not quickly in my throat. I suddenly had a splitting headache, and then everything went black. I felt like I was falling forward, but I don't think I was. This was completely different from when I've greyed out: I didn't feel like I was fainting at all. My vision was only gone for about a second (although it felt like an hour), then it came back with my heart beats, but went out again between beats (it was as though someone was flipping the lights on and off in time with my pulse). This continued for about thirty seconds, and slowly faded, until it was unnoticeable, at the same time my heart went back to "normal" where I couldn't feel the beat in my chest or neck. I'm not currently taking any medications that would do this. I also usually have low bp, the highest it's ever been was 130/80. I'm really worried. Have any of you ever had something like this happen to you? Have you ever heard of anything like this happening? I don't want to go to the ER because I know they'll tell me I just fainted or something and won't take me seriously, although if it happens again tonight I'm going to have to. Thanks, and sorry for the long post, Lauren Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
