9 Clear Signs You’re About to Faint
You feel lightheaded or dizzy:-When you are lying down, blood is uniformly distributed, and when you stand up, blood rapidly falls due to gravity. Squeezing the muscles in your lower body, such as your thigh, calf, and glutes, before you stand. This will pump blood back to the upper half of your body, preventing the quick drop in blood pressure once you are upright.
You see spots in front of your eyes:-Your eyes could provide the first clue that you are about to faint. Because your eyeball is pressurized, those blood vessels collapse first when blood moves downward.
You begin to hyperventilate:-If you begin to hyperventilate, find a place to sit or lie down, close your eyes, and place a hand on your belly. Then focus on taking slow, deep breaths, expanding your stomach like a balloon as your inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. The additional oxygen will nourish every cell in your body and ease your brains distress.
Your fingertips or lips tingle:-As blood flow to your brain decreases, the calcium in your bloodstream could suddenly drop, too. When that happens, you might feel tingling or numbness in your extremities—especially in your fingertips and around your lips—as the vital mineral moves away from those areas. Sit down to open your airways and allow your blood to circulate, sending oxygen and blood back up to your brain.
You feel warm:-The body is actually getting a bump up in blood flow to the wrong places like your arms and legs.Find a cool place in the shade to sit down and sip on some water; doing so can return your heart rate to a normal pace.
You spend a long time standing:-When you stand, your heart must work harder to pump blood up to your brain. people who crossed their legs while standing and tensed their lower body muscles stabilized their blood pressure and heart rates, delaying fainting by an average of 2.5 minutes; some even avoided syncope altogether.
You have tunnel vision:-If your peripheral vision tunnels, its a sign of that your blood pressure has dropped, which could lead to a fainting spell. In this situation find a chair and sit or lie down immediately.
You feel nauseous:-Feeling nauseated can be a sign of many conditions (including pregnancy, food poisoning, and alcohol toxicity), but if your nausea is accompanied by other symptoms of syncope such as tunnel vision or hyperventilation, sit or lie down and seek medical help immediately.
You have a blueish tint to your skin:-A slow, weak pulse means that blood isn’t reaching all the way to your outer skin, making it look pale.When you sit down, rub the muscles in your arms and legs in slow circles to jump-start your circulation and return your blood pressure to a normal level.
