Sleeping syncope?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I hope I am posting this correctly! Do any of you get presyncope warning, lie down,pass out, THEN go into a sleep from 20 minutes up to two hours? When I awaken I feel awful the rest of the day. This happens almost everyday. Also, one of my main symptoms is chest fatigue and chest weakness. Can anyone relate?

I appreciate any input!

Here is one study that addresses the issue:

Of course, this goes against the common belief of how NCS originates (standing up). Just goes to show that there is still a lot to learn about these disorders...

Michelle,

Thank you for the article. I called my town's medical library and they are emailing it to me. It is not exactly what happens to me, but it shows people can pass out when lying down even without extreme stimuli ie. intense pain. I will show my physician as a hopeful "clue" into what is possibly happening to me.
