    I had lost consciousness 4 times in my life.Once because it was really hot and the other three due to a seizure/fainting.I usually feel dizzy and my stomach hurts I start feeling detached from reality and I then wake up feeling really dizzy.It is really scary and I am so scared of it happening again.I feel especially scared when I feel a bit dizzy because I am scared of it happening again.My worst fear is hitting my head as each time it happened my mum caught me or I was sitting.This happens every couple years.I feel like the fear of having one just makes me feel unwell and then this makes me feel that I will have one.I am especially scared on my own or when I am going somewhere as I am not very safe if it were to happen on the pavement.

    I can understand this must be really scary for you. I can't imagine what it must feel like to have a seizure, let alone not know why. Worry won't help you though. You are doing what you should be and getting it checked out by a specialist though, so try to tell yourself that you don't need to think about it or worry. The specialist will find out what's going on and help you with it so until then just hang in there.

    I'm sorry I can't offer any better support. Good luck with your appointment
