I was sitting on my couch watching TV, I got up and went to the fridge and next thing I remember Im sitting on the chair, fell on it and knocked off a candle from the table, my friend saw it and said that I went to the fridge collapsed on to the chair and started shivering , cramp or whatever. He said it lasted for a few seconds but I feel like I have a 5 hour memory hole.
What the hell happened? Why did this happen? Am I sick or something?

That's some weird ****, man. Have you been stressed out at all lately? Or done any drugs? If I were you, i'd go get checked out

So... Why are you on the Pit if you're that worried?

I dont know man, Ive had a couple of times when im sitting down and stand up and start doing something, and then my vision goes basicly black, but nothing like this. Ive never started twitching or fallen down. Is this normal or should I see a doctor?

Sounds like a seizure...should go get checked out!

You made the right move already. My doctor always tells me if I black out and start convulsing to quickly start a forum in the pit.

Vasovagil syncope is my guess.


He would have to have stuck his head into the fridge for that...
No, probably orthostatic hypotension (low blood pressure due to standing up):
Low blood pressure > Stands up > Blood pressure drops in brain > Blood perfusion of brain drops below critical level > Pass out

It's pretty normal, actually. Did you stand up really abruptly? If you did, try standing up more slowly next time, to allow your blood pressure to fall more gradually, so your vessels can adapt to it.

No you should stay in the Pit and ask the people who don't have a medical degree.

Why would he have had to stick his head in the fridge?

I'm diagnosed with it, and I merely have to stand up. Wait, were you conscious while it happened? Or did it feel like no time passed?

Do lighten up. Even the thinks you need to.

This has happened to me before!!! it's either dehydration, or if your head is really hot (not that kinda hot), it can also happen.

Probably going to the doctor tomorrow, and jeez dont jump on me like that, I wrote here because some people here might know something, i started looking it up on wikipedia and called up my mother and Im pretty sure its the blood pressure I have, but im still going to the doctor. Anyway, thanks to you who helped. I appreciate it.

Vasovagal syncope is passing out due to overstimulation of the heart by "vagal" stimulation (stimulation of the vagus nerve, which slows heart rate: if it's overstimulated, heart rate drops too steep and you pass out).

It can be caused by many things, one of them being sudden exposure to extreme cold. Sticking your head in the fridge probably wouldn't do it, it was a stupid joke, but jumping in a tub of freezing water would...

There's other causes to vasovagal syncope though, but I don't think standing up abruptly is one of them. Standing upright for a long time, is a possible cause...

Cheers

There we have it. Orthostatic hypotension. Sudden low blood pressure due to standing up.

See a doctor, but in the mean time, don't worry too much about it, it seems perfectly normal.
