    What are common reasons for fainting?

    If you have fainted and it is the first time you have ever dealt with this, you may find this very concerning and upsetting. Luckily, fainting is only very rarely a sign that something serious is wrong and is more likely to be a one-off event which you will be able to prevent happening again quite easily. Whatever the reason for your faint, you will want to know what has happened and if you need to do anything further medically, so it is worth going to the doctor if you have fainted for the first time, or if anything about your fainting episode concerns you.

    • Physical reasons. The most common reason for a fainting spell are physical factors. You may faint because it is too hot or there is not enough ventilation in the room you are in. If you have not eaten recently then your blood sugar may take a dip and this can cause you to faint as well.
    • Hyperventilation. This is a very common side effect in people having a panic attack. Hyperventilation is when you are breathing too quickly or shallowly to get enough oxygen into your body. Generally, as soon as you faint you will start to breathe normally and this should rouse you fast enough.
    • Emotional stress. You may faint during or just after an accident as being very emotionally upset can cause your blood pressure to drop, which makes you faint.
    • Pregnancy. In some cases this can be one of the first signs of being pregnant for a woman. Pregnancy means that your body is trying to deal with a host of other things happening, which means that your blood sugar and blood pressure can go haywire.
    • Drugs. Certain types of drugs make you more prone to fainting. If you have passed out whilst taking drugs you should go to a doctor, though, as it may be caused by a heart of brain problem brought on by your drug use.
