I have been diagnosed with PF and had my first major attack 2 weeks ago. It woke me upp, then made me unconscious while being in the bathroom. Suddenly I found myself lying on the stone floor with an enormous bump around my right eyebrow, then passed out once more. The whole thing lasted 22 mins. Since that I have had a spectacular swollen dark purple eye (which prevents me from leaving my house if I don´t have to) and now it's spreading around the other eye as well- and the cramp is on all the time, although much less painful compared to that night. Right now my problem is really how to avoid fainting next time I have an attack. Its really scary to lose consciousness and fall helplessly on your face on a tile floor, especially since I live alone most of the time. I did´n t even experience horrible pain, just very hard cramps, anxiety and cold sweat - and then, BAM! I'm on the floor. I have almost fainted from rectal pain before but that pain was much more intense than this (hemorrhoid procedure caused it). Is it usual to faint from PF even when the pain hasn´t become overwhelming? How do you cope with it?
