The dentist give me the anesthetic without adrenaline in it since I have tachycardia sometimes. Like I said, I wasn't like that before. Even my emotions are a lot more intenses than before, it's not just "physic". I'm like HYPER sensitive to EVERYTHING. I wonder sometimes if it's just because of stress and bad things that happened in the past, bad experiences.... :S Can your system become all bizarre like this ONLY because of stress and negative things, over time ?View Thread
But why since a few years I nearly faint when I have an injection. Why at those time, my heart don't compensate like when I'm in hot temperature or try to get up ? It's like my system is all off-balanceView Thread
I'll try to do my best for the explanation, I not pretty good in english
I'm a 31 years old woman, dont smoke or drink, eating pretty well etc.
At the age of 12 I was weighting 210pounds. I've lost weight rapidly at the age 14 (lost approx.90 pounds in 9 months). After that weight loss I began to have "malaises" (lightheadness a lot). Probably low blood pressure problems and fatigue a lot. I've smoke weed too when I was a teenager but had to stop because I was fainting :S.
I've ALWAYS had problems doing exercises too (after that weight loss). Become week very rapidly, feeling unwell (lighthead +++++++). At the age of 21 I decide to go to the gym and have to quit after a few times, I was pale like a gost and almost fainted.
After I had my first child, i've gained weight, gone to 200 pounds again.... and lost it again but over a few years. It was not drastic like the first time. Over the years I develop many problems. Very very low blood pressure. Tachycardia (130 BPM approx) sometimes when I try to get up in the night to go to the bathroom. I have a lots of problems getting up. I feel like a pressure that go down from my belly to my legs, feel SO tired, heart beating VERY fast. The same thing happen when it's hot outside, its VERY difficult for me in hot temperature. Have a lot more problems doing exercises. This "condition" is really not easy for me. And if I go back a few years ago, i've NEVER had problem at the dentist etc. Now, when I have an injection, I have big big malaises, near fainting and feeling unwell the rest of the day. I have other teeth to repare and don't want to go because of this
I've seen an electrophysiologist that said that I probably have baroreceptor dysfunctions. I've pass test in the pass, electrocardiogram, stress test, 1 echo, everything seem normal. After those tests, if everything looks normal, can you say that EVERYTHING is normal ?
I have a history of anxiety too... But the anxiety developp +++ because of all the malaises I have since my first weight loss.
I bought a machine to mesure blood pressure and sometimes when I'm very relax, it can be 80/50.
I don't know what to do about this at all
And now, i'm anxious because i'm suppose to have a surgery (general anesthesia) and i'm VERY afraid that I can die because of all this. I say to myself that maybe they didn't see something when I passed all the tests etc.
I would like to have the opinion of others about all this.
