    it's not - well i've been told it's not anyway
    There's one way to find out.

    Go to paint, maximise the window and the paint area and hold Ctrl+I.

    If you fall over in a fit, then you've probably been told wrong.

    Doesn't sport raise the volume of blood you carry around? Or at the very least you adapt to being able to change your blood pressure faster? So if you maybe did some cardio exercise that might help?

    Low blood pressure sortof runs in the family and my bro did collapse the one time when he just jumped out of bed really fast the one morning. I've found that if I do more exercise and I keep up with it I don't get those really annoying dizzy spells an stuff.

    Just goto the docs so he can check you over, could be many things for example anaemia, or it maybe just a one off, if it happens again you defo need to get it checked out.

    I would visit the doctor to see if their is any drugs you can take. It may have been a result of the heat, my sister used to faint a lot but she grew out of it, it could also be to with the blood sugar level (which it was in my sisters case) or in my case last week in hospital a sudden drop in blood preasure.
    Why not save the NHS some time and resources. Cal NHS DIRECT!!

    Too many hypocondriacs and melodramatics on this board. I suppose it's no wonder waiting times are so unacceptably high when we have this element of worry even when we feel the slightest of pain. I'm not saying that you should avoid using the Doctor at all cost - but try to think things through before you waste valuable time and money. It is afterall you who'll end up paying for it in the long run

    That's exactly how I was brought up to think. Go to the doctor as a last resort - but in the meantime things were getting worse when they could have been solved easily!

    So do you not think fainting in the shower is serious enough to be worthy of a visit to a doctor? :confused:
