random 'blackouts' - January 16th 2009, 03:28 PM

for the last four or five years, I've been getting these random 'blackouts', where it's like there's a black fog covering my eyes. It's always accompanied by feeling faint or dizzy, but they only last for a few seconds. I've been getting them probably two or three times a week normally, but sometimes it's as much as two or three times a day. does anyone have any idea what this could be, and do you think I should see a doctor?


There's always light at the end of a tunnel, even if you have to pass a few bends to see it.

I would see a neurologist just to be on the safe side.

Anything dealing with blacking out, especially this frequently should be discussed witha doctor. It could be a number of things and we can't diagnose it. It may be something serious so I would suggest you see a doctor sooner, rather than later.

It could be absolutely anything! Two to three times a week is really bad, and that's obviously a sign that something is wrong. Please go and see your doctor, as if left untreated(whatever it may be), the blackouts will not only continue and get worse, but other symptoms may accompany it and i'm sure you don't want to experience this any longer.
Personally, i've blacked out about 3 times in my life and it's such a scary thing! The most common cause is dehydration, but in each case it's different. Anyway, i'd strongly advise you to book an appointment with your doctor ASAP.

take care x

As everyone else said, please see your doctor. The frequency of you blackouts is worrying and needs to be fixed. There is a high chance of you blacking out when doing something such as walking down stairs or pouring boiling water and injuring yourself. I'd say go to the doctor, even if its just to set your mind at ease x

There really isn't any adivce we can give that hasn't already been said. A doctor's visit is needed to diagnose this. Thread Closed.
