    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.
    Ok thanx for help. I t was a surprise though. Cause I couldnt complete my bath .

    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..
    yea, i get those too!!! i was 12 the first time it happened and a bath wasn't even the situation. it happens about twice a year and it's been 13 yrs now...

    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, we get the picture. You've rephrased this post about five times now. Get up more slowly next time.
    Jog on!

    No worries, I'm the same as you mate, I get worried at little things so I'm often on here asking questions about stuff that frightened me a bit and I'm always told theres nothing to worry about, but hey. At least you've been reassured in case it ever happens again.

    Bit of a relief for me this thread. Only had it once, fairly recently, afternoon after my 21st. Decided to take a shower, by the end I couldn't turn the tap off 'cos both my arms had seized up. Managed to make it to my room and collapsed on my bed, got worse and worse until my legs started freezing as well. Whole body was on fire from pins and needles, was a bit worried I was checking out for a minute. Suddenly just went, I chalked it up to unnatural amounts of alcohol.

    huh?? i was dizzy lol.
    It was a joke, i.e.

    The Seven Dwarfs are sitting in a bath feeling happy.
    Happy gets out, so they feel Grumpy instead.

    If you are a sporty person you may be overtraining and you should stop for a couple of weeks.

    Otherwise it may be a low blood pressure, see your GP and ask for them to measure it and see what they say.

    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.
    in the hot environment blood vessels under the skin dialates to lose heat so that your body can cool down. When blood vessels are dialated, the blood circulation is richer under the skin, therefore less blood goes to the brain system. Hence, Low blood level in the brain for a prolonged period cause dizzyness.
