I was diagnosed with POTS 8 years ago. I don't faint often but the past year and a half I have the frequency of my fainting episodes has increased. Usually when I faint, I feel some kind of "warning" such as chest pains or feeling lightheaded. I fainted the other day without any warning and afterward I had no memory of what happened to me. Here's what happened. It was about 5 am. I remember laying in bed contemplating whether or not to get up for the day. That is the last memory I have before fainting. Apparently I got out of bed and then I fainted. When I fainted, I hit the back of my head on the wall and ended up in the ER. I needed stitches and I had a mild concussion. I had no idea or memory of fainting. I thought that I had fallen out of bed, but it was apparent from my location in the bedroom that I fainted because the wall that I hit my head on was way to far away from the bed to have simply rolled and hit my head. I am really bothered by the fact that I have no memory of what really happened and I am wondering if any of you had had a similar fainting experience. Thanks Bren
