I need some help guys. Saturday night my husband and I where at a client of his having a nice relaxing dinner. At around 10:00pm we had finished desert and we where all sitting around the dining room table talking. Out of the blue my husband says, "I'm feeling like I might pass out" and with that I began to get up to help him lie down and he just slumped onto the table! He went limp, his arms went limp, his eyes stayed open but he was passed out! I began to shake him and scream his name and at the same time I was telling those people to call 911. He was out for about 15 seconds but what seemed like hours. I thought he had died. He began to come around and was white in the face. We layed him on the carpet and he was sweating and clamy. I kept telling them to call 911 but they just ran around like they didn't know what to do. My husband kept insisting that he was okay so they didn't call. I put a cold cloth on his head and within 15 minutes he was back to normal. I don't know why this happened and it is really worrying me. The only thing he has is high colesteral, he is on Crestor. His blood pressure was normal the last time he had it checked, his blood sugar is normal. He has never had any chest pain or arm pain. He only had one glass of wine with dinner. What would cause someone to black out like that. He said that he didn't even hear me screaming his name! He frightened me so much that I can't stop reliving that moment when I thought he was dead. Of course he's laughing at it all and feels perfectly normal today. He is calling the doctor and making an appoinment on my insistance. What do you think it could be? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.Mary

It could be anything.  It could be anxiety, blood sugar, anything.  It is good that he made a doctor's appointment.  Let us know how he made out.

Try not to worry too much about it.
Remember, we always jump to the worst.
Really, it is not that unusual for someone to passout with no real know cause.
There are lots of harmless things that could have cause this freak reaction.
I do thnk he should check with his Dr. But I am sure there is a simple explanation.

Just an update to let you know that my husband went to see the doctor and he said that he doesn't think it was anything serious. He asked him a bunch of questions and then came to the conclusion that it was just a faint, constricted blood vessels to the brain due to just eating dinner and the room being quite warm....it was warm but no one else fainted!! Anyway, I'm sobbing with relief, trying hard to believe in what the doctor said. My husband said "I told you so" and said that I overreact....well, it was not a pretty sight, it was very very scary to see. Anyway, all is well for now.

Hi MAry,

     The same thing happened to my friends husband about a month ago. Also while eating in a restaurant. They called 911 and rushed him to the ER. They found nothing.

     The Dr  asked him what he was eating and he said fish. He said he could have had an allergic reaction to something he ate and not to worry but keep a log of what he eats to see if it happends agian.  Glad everyhting is ok

It could be nothing serious at all OR life threatening but your husband needs medical attention and a full cardiac evaluation.

Please make him go to the doctor this day.

I fainted in church once on Christmas Eve at midnight mass when I was in my early 20's.  I know that was a long time ago, but it came on so suddenly that I didn't know I had fainted until I woke up in the parking lot after a few men had carried me out to fresh air.  I have no clue what caused it and it never happened again.  My brother fainted in church once, too - when he was a kid.  Do you usually eat that late at night?  You said you had just finished dessert at 10:00.   Perhaps your hubby went a long time without eating that day then ate heavily late at night and it was just his body's reaction - perhaps the blood in his brain was diverting itself to digestion and it just overwhelmed him physically.  I wouldn't worry unless it happens again.  I hope you are starting to calm down.  I know how scary this must have been, but truly, people faint all the time for "unknown" reasons.  Val.

The same thing happened to my husband when we were at his brother's house for a party.  The guys were sitting around the table playing a friendly game of cards and somebody said something funny.  My husband was laughing so hard he fell off his chair.  I ran to get my camera it was so funny not knowing he had actually passed out.  He has no recollection of those few moments but they couldn't find anything wrong with him.

Thank you so much everyone for your responses.  I never knew how common fainting was.  It's funny Val that you mentioned church, that is exactly what the doctor told my husband, he said that it is like when people faint in church from the heat.  No one has ever passed out in front of me before, it came so suddenly and he went out so completely that I just got scared.  He on the other hand is just fine, he forgot about it already...I wish I could be more like that.  I hope it never happens again but if it does I want him to insist on more extensive tests. 

Hugs, Mary

Imagine my fear.  My husband Had high blood pressure since he was 20 and at 35 had an aortic anerysm.  I thought he was dying.  We took his BP and it was normal,  We went to the Cardiologist and all the tests came back normal.  His Catheterization was perfect.  His arteries were clear.  His repair was perfect.  His stress test was good.  It was just a temporary loss of oxygen to the brain that a person can get even from yawning.  NORMAL.

Fainting is normal and does happen from normal things each of us do daily.  Fainting is caused by a decrease in blood flow to the brain or problems with blood pressure.

With this being said why wait till the next time to get evaluated.

Please encourage him to seek medical advice for peace of mind.

I am not trying to scare anyone but anytime someone faints why rish not getting checked in case it is something to be concerned about.

imho

Hi there.  He did go to the doctor on Monday and like I said the doctor said that he thought it was nothing to be concerned about, that it was just something that happened because of constricted blood flow to the brain due to the room being a little warm, just having dinner, that my husband was somewhat anxious because this client we where having dinner with is a big time buyer from his company etc.  The doctor did  not recommend further testing....I cannot tell my husband what to do, he is satisfied with his doctors recommendations.

Mary

I read your post incorrectly.

Men are notorious for not pushing matters further.

Ah, we can only dream of being like your hubby, Mary.  Imagine how it must feel to have something happen and then just forget about it without worrying!  Oh, how I'd love to be like that!!  Glad he's feeling fine and "moving on" as they say.  I hope he wasn't too embarassed since he was with that important client!  Val.
