How did you black out? Existing medical conditions you weren't aware of? Heat? Temps?

I thought for sure this was gonna be a "lack of major league sports thread" related to the pandemic...

Oh, yeah- to the OP: get better soon.

I blacked out standing up one time and fell and hit my forehead on the bricks of the fireplace. That was no fun but nothing broken thankfully, just a few stitches.

Did you black out unprovoked? Or did you get hit by a car and that caused you to black out?

Have been trying to get in shape,
Stopped smoking and took up vaping . Vaping is a big lie. Just as dangerous as smoking

I once had a brief dizzy spell on a steep climb. Pretty unnerving. Talked to the doc about it some months later. He said "Did you think to get off and walk?" Subsequent tests didn't come up with any culprit. Best wishes to OP.

Don't do either nor do I drink but I've heard that vaping is worse than smoking itself because that chemical stays in your system longer. The vape gets to me more than most cigarettes.

I blacked out after peeing, woke up staring at a hub cap. went down twisting my leg and awarded myself with a spiral fracture of the femur. at least I was all zipped up & dry. TMI? anyway, turns out itís a thing, cuz I met another guy that it happened to in the privacy of his home. but he didnít break his leg. Iíll never drink grappa again. at least not after drinking all day & night as a night cap
