Not a lot actually, you go from conscious to waking up on the floor wondering what just happened.

i think it depends on the person
like, my vision always goes dark before i actually faint. but i can still hear everything for a few more seconds
then everything sort of just fades

Same here - then I gradually come back round, usually with a crashing headache from hitting my head on something. Thankfully it has been years since it has happened for me

Happened once but it was horrible i was dizzy, my legs went totally shaky, and just felt like everything was going dark/black around me.
Feel sorry for anyone who gets them often - must be awful :sadnod:

Happened to me once, playing basketball, very embarrassing since my coach and friends thought I fell as a joke so ignored me for about 10secs.
But everything started going blurry at first, I was out of breath, everything started fading and going dark. Next thing I know I wake up on the floor with everyone in my face. Feels like waking up in a new day and not remembering anything.
I think its cos I had hypoglycaemia, but I'm not diabetic so idk :cool:

I pass out fairly frequently, my main symptoms before hand is vertigo (different from my usual, it's spinning when I'm about to faint), worsening of my tinnitus, inability to speak (comes out garbled lol), and my vision goes black. There's other things as well but they're the main ones before I pass out.

pretty relatable

light headedness > unconscious > woah what happened > dizzy > feels like you head is expanding momentarily > realising there's some pain where you fell > feeling weak for a while as you recover

i have low blood pressure. i imagine the cause of peoples' feinting probably affects the feelings a lot

Omg no I was literally having a conversation about this yesterday. I've always wondered what it's like. Sometimes I can't remember going to sleep if I've napped accidentally, and I've woken up confused, so I imagine that's the best understanding I could have of it.

I used to faint when I got up from the sofa, and once from the toilet. It feels like all the blood and life drains from your head, then your body goes like floppy stone, then nothing. Once I was aware that I was going down the I felt myself banging my head off a door handle but was numb, and woke in a the hallway some time later. I was quite relaxed.
