Fainting: What are the signs and symptoms of fainting?
- Dizziness or feeling lightheaded
- Tunnel vision or blurred vision
Dizziness or feeling lightheaded
At times, when we feel dizzy or light-headed too much, it might suggest that we are going to get fainted. The spinning of the head, drop in the blood pressure etc. lead to the feeling of dizziness. Hence, we tend to get fainted.
While you are about to get fainted, you feel tired and confused. You are unable to figure out what you must do and eventually you collapse and become unconscious because of a severe headache too.
The sudden feeling of fatigue and nausea also might indicate fainting. You feel pukish and uneasy. Even after taking anti-acid pills, you still can’t handle it. It often says you need to sit and relax.
When you tend to faint, your body temperature might rise. It makes your body extremely hot in the beginning and you tend to sweat. This happens because the heart tries to pump the blood at a faster pace as it wasn’t getting enough blood and oxygen to supply it to the brain.
Tunnel vision or blurred vision
When you are about to get fainted, you will suddenly feel you are rushing into a tunnel. It is because the blood pressure drops and your brain is unable to get adequate oxygen and blood. Hence, you faint. Make sure you sit down if you have blurred vision or tunnel vision.
