Yet Another Faint....

Saturday morning I got up and had a shower.  Nothing ground breaking.

About 10 minutes after my shower, I was blow drying my hair and started to feel a little woozy.  So I laid down.  I passed out.

I don't know how long I was out for, not long I imagine. Came to and it took me a second or two to realize what had happened.  Started to feel really sweaty/shaky.

Called to Zach to bring me a glass of juice. Had that and felt much better.  Stayed lying down for awhile, but then got up and did some yard work (Effing dandelions).

Many fortunate things here in that Io had enough of a warning to lie down first and thus didn't hit my head and have avoided a concussion and vertigo, which is awesome because vertigo SUCKS!

I started thinking about all of my past faints. They ALL seem to have come directly after being too hot.

Sept 09  - Fainted IN the shower - empty stomach morning.
August 11 - Fainted after hot tub
Dec 12 - Fainted after having a shower (was sitting down on the floor at the time) - empty stomach morning.
June 13 - Fainted after having a shower in early am (light breakfast)

Maybe it's just a coincidence, but perhaps these faints are something as simple as I am getting overheated.  Brad has told me countless time that my shower temps are scalding.  Once I left the shower on for him as he was hopping in right after me and he FREAKED with how hot it was.

So, I have an appointment with the Neurologist this month, so I will mention the common thread.  After the last episode they thought it was Meniere's Disease, but a trip to the ENT specialist kiboshed that pretty damn quick.

In the interim, I will cool down my showers and see if that makes any sort of difference. Man... I'll feel pretty stupid if that was the cause all along, but hey... if that's all it is, I'll take feeling stupid any day.
