Uh, I hope I had more fun poll choices, but those will have to do! laugh

I think I had a close encounter, I fell but I didn't black out. Still not sure if that can be called fainting laugh

Oh, long time since I last made a poll!

biggrin First to vote 'yes'
Yes I fainted after a blood test, so thankfully I was in a hospital...although it didn't make a difference since I got up got some food and got a ride home (with my mom of course)

I remember me starting to black out and knowing I was going to faint I started hunting for a free seat...found one and collapsed on it...woke up with a nurse stroking my hand...and on my mom's lap. loool naturally with this I had managed to get THREE seats MUAHAHA smile wink grin

Back when I got my tongue pierced it was too hot in the office and I wound up going out for a few seconds, at least that's what the piercer told me...personally I don't remember much of that day.

Yeah, I've fainted several times:

At ~6 years old, after accidentally stabbing my thumb with a fork (I was trying to open a walnut with the fork, because I couldn't find the nutcracker);

In high school, when I had the flu, going back to my room after using the bathrom;

About 7 years ago, stood up too fast on a hot day & keeled over in the front yard & gave myself a mild concussion.

I've also come close numerous times, probably from low blood pressure plus mild dehydration. I always used to try to wait it out standing up, but now I just sit down & don't care where I am or how odd it might look - concussions suck. dead

You were serious! O_O XD

Hmm, I recall fainting one or two times from overworking and lack of nutrition. One of those times I didn't even know I fainted, it was weird and scary. One minute I'm brushing my teeth and the next I somehow end up by the bathroom door, laying on the floor. O-o

I've never fainted or come close. I think that's a good thing? I'd gone through ridiculously hot days and blood tests and all that, but I've never felt faint enough to... faint >.>

I think I can only recall once where I nearly fainted on my cello.

It's a Thursday after school at orchestra practise, and it was really hectic that week. Lots of late nights trying to get my work done and had my teeth tightened recently so didn't want to each much from the discomfort. I felt that I wanted to die from exhaustion but I kept playing on my cello. Then I started to see black dots in my vision and wanted to switch off. According to my cello desk buddy, she said I looked so pale it wasn't funny. I sit in the front desk of the cello section so I bet others probably saw me look sick. Luckily, rehearsal finished soon so I sat down after packing up and just chilled for a bit before I had to catch my bus home.

Hm I fainted maybe 2 or 3 times in my life for different reason, but I'm most of the time only near to faint

Nearly the same thing happened to me, but I was in middle school. I already noticed that I was feeling especially faint as I was exiting the bathroom, so I asked my mom to walk me to my room. I fainted safely into her arms right when we were walking by the top of a staircase. biggrin Note to self: Even if you are so sick you don't feel like eating, eat anyways!!! eyes

Only once that I can remember. I was under the weight requirement and hadn't eaten on a day that I donated blood. It hadn't occurred to me that either would cause a problem. roll eyes

I fainted once when I got my pupils dilated, now I don't get those drops in my eyes anymore, lawl.

Aside from that I come really close to like passing out a lot. Like everything goes black for a few seconds and stuff.. I'm not sure why that happens though? Hah. > o >;;

I've heard that mild dehydration is the biggest cause of almost blacking out or feeling faint, esp. if it happens when you stand up too fast, and even moreso if you have low blood pressure. Doesn't have to be really hot or anything, either...I do notice that when I make a point of drinking a lot of juice & water, it happens less often.

I've got quite a low blood pressure.
Whenever I get up fast and have been
relaxed on my back or sitting sleazily,
my head gets heavy and I can't really tell
where my eyes are looking at.

I have passed out once when I was sick
and took a deep breath. I fell, hit my head
on the stone floor and stood up right away.

Well I don't know if this is technically fainting but once I hadn't eaten all day and I got out of a really hot shower and while I was walking to my room my vision blacked out. My body was slammed against a nearby door and I couldn't move for a minute or so... I was scared that I went blind when I couldn't see and my heart was pounding! I hope that never happens again!!!
