    this happens to me quite often, whether i'm in the tub or not. and i've no idea what it is or how it's triggered.
    Apparently it's because the water is too hot.

    i think the room is too hot + head rush getting up.
    i get it almost everytime i have a bath. i open the window a tiny bit when i put conditioner on my hair for 2 mins just to let it cool down a bit, it makes me less llikely to get head rush/dizzy/sickly.

    I wish there was a window in my bathroom . I'm surprised this never happened to me before because I always keep the water as hot as it was tonight.:o:

    Happens to me every time I have a bath. I just put it down to standing up too quickly after having a hot bath or.. something like that..

    I get that quite a lot. I went to the docs about it years ago and they said it's asthma?! But I don't know if that's just cos they didn't know what it was, but I do get breathing problems with it sometimes, like I'm in the bath then sometimes it feels like my chest gets really tight and I can't take a full breath - do you get that?
    I get EXACTLY this, but not just when I'm in the bath, just randomly happens?
    Although I do get that headrush/can't see thing every single time I have a bath, so I just avoid them at all costs and have showers. I also went to the doctor about the random breathing thing happening, and he just told me that he couldn't see anything wrong with me, and that I must just be a bit stressed out. I highly doubt I've been stressed out constantly for the past how ever many years it's been happening though! I think I should go back..

    Seriously I was bathing and I layed there for like 2 mins... until when I got up I just couldn't think. I was shaking and I felt so tired. My body was about to collapse and I felt like I was losing my vision. I went to my room and I just sat on the chair and I was just like.... so drowsy.

    Has this happened to anyone before? I felt really blind today.
    Nah you're fine, sounds like you've had the water too hot and you've got out of the bath quickly and had a bit of a headrush dizzy spell.
    I get them in the morning when I get out of bed!

    someone must've punished me for this to happen. It aint ever happened before. BTW I quickly jumped out the bath and i was like sitting on the floor for nearly 5 minutes. I thought the evil spirits were trying to take me away so I was resilient to give up.

    but i don't like cold baths... so does heat trigger the whole fainting spell? b/c i get these even when i'm not in the bath. so glad to know that i'm not alone with the whole bath thing.

    You had just been the the bath you might of ate some by accident! :P

    On a serious note, that just might be because of you were a bit dehydrated because of the heat of the bath. I always take a pint of water in the bath with me cos I feel dizzy otherwise.
    Still you dont have anything to worry about.

    Yeah and the steam.

    I got my 1st one tonight. It was horrible though but my fault nonthe less. However I've never had this happen to me before today even though it's been hotter before.

    Yeah, it happens to me when not in the bath, like just normally, too. Also, I used to play a load of sports, and it would often happen then, but I'd just kinda carry on. Except when I was doing swimming...sometimes I had to get somebody to chuck me my inhaler if I was busy swimming, or I'd just get out of the water and lay down. It's wierd, it used to be just the water thing. Like it seemed that when my chest was in water, it started happening, you know like where you chest feels tight and you can't take a full breath.

    Don't have a clue what it is, but I doubt it's stress!
