What makes you faint #1

There are many reasons we may feel dizzy at some point or even faint at times. Despite it seems normal sometimes, it may also be a sign of a much serious health condition.

Below are some factors that can make someone faint.

Dehydration

You become dehydrated when you take inadequate amount of liquids and fluid. This decreases your blood pressure and affects your nervous system, which could make you faint. For this reason, it’s advisable to get plenty of water, especially during hot seasons. You can also increase your intake of water when you realize your urine is not clear enough.

Arrhythmia

This is when you have irregular heart beats. This can slowdown the flow of blood that gets to the brain. This may eventually, cause you to faint. However, this happening may indicate a much serious heart condition.

Cyanotic Breath-Holding

It happens mostly among children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years. They cry hard enough to cut off oxygen. This triggers an automatic response that could cause them to faint. It mostly happens unexpectedly which turns them blue and pass out for about a minute. Though it’s scary at first, you do not need to be worry that much.

Pallid Breath-Holding

It is a sudden fright or pain that causes the heart to stop for a few seconds. It mostly happens from the shock you experience after you get hurt. This is mostly seen in kids between 0 to 5 years. A child might turn very pale and pass out for a minute.
