I'm a 38 year old single male, who lives alone. Last year i began to find something odd; that when i urinated, i would begin to feel very faint. At times I would have to stop in the middle of it quickly, and lower myself to the floor or sit on the toilet, in order to regain my composure. I didnt think anything of it, because i have been under stress, so i related it to that. It also happened a few times after.
Early this year, around Feb, i recall getting up in the middle of the night because i had to void. My stream began, but then i felt faint, seeing \"darkness\" and feeling very strange. Like something had come over me. I managed to get back to my bedroom but i fell down to the floor (THUMP)... next thing i remember is crawling into my bed, and waking up in the morning to find a huge scratch on my arm, and my leg being sore.
So, this \"micturition syncope\" situation has now happened approximately 4-5 times, maybe more.. havent kept count !
Today, i awoke from an afternoon nap. Went up the stairs to the bathroom and started to urinate. Low and behold, it started again... feeling faint, dizzy, seeing darkness.. very very weak.... i managed to stagger into my computer room and i must have passed out because i awoke to being on the floor and my phone beeping off the hook... and i hadn't touched it so how was it now off the hook?
This is occurring more frequently now.. I do at times feel kinda fatigued, off and on some days... i thought it was stress, once again....
In the morning i am going to see my family doctor to get some answers. Since i live alone here, with no friends nearby or family, i was so scared and frightenend.. i didnt know if i should call the ambulance or not... i just layed in my bed and prayed that i would feel better... which i did about 30 mins later... still not 100% but better than before... Now everytime I have to go to the bathroom, i'm scared it may happen again.. YIKES... Hopefully i'll get some answers tomorrow from my Dr.
