So i was walking to school today and when i got to school i went to my locker. When i opened my locker my head started to hurt and felt like ti was expanding. Then my vision blurred (Lots of like black dots in my vision?) and i lost complete control of my body from what felt like fatigue and collapsed. I slammed my head on the wall and hit the ground. I blacked out and re awoke almost immediately. i tried to stand up but had no control of anything. Idk wut to do =(. I wen tot the doctor and they have no idea what happen'd. Also when i got home from the doctor it happen'd again and i fell on the ice and i think sprained my wrist. Plz if anyone knows something please help. Thx =)

@Nathaniel00890,
Happens to a lot of people now and again, including me for many years, it's just a temporary imbalance in the bodies sugar/glucose levels or something, a bit like diabetes.
The black dots in front of the eyes are an early warning, so when they appear I immediately eat and drink something sugary and the dots go away and I feel okay again.
I used to try riding it out by not eating or drinking anything when the black dots appeared, but within minutes began to feel faint and sweaty, and my stomach began screaming out for food, so I ate and drank something just in time and never actually fainted.
But check with your doctor to make sure it's not diabetes.

Do not listen to non-medical person's advice when they say the following:

Furthermore, this is even more irresponsible:

This is poor and irresponsible advice. Blackouts such as you experienced are not common and should not be considered as minor. You should see a doctor who pursues this further until a diagnosis has been arrived at and treatment plan occurs. If you have to find a different doctor who treats this more fully, do so.

@Nathaniel00890,
Talk to your parents. Tell them what you told us. There are a lot of reasons for blackouts. Some are very treatable, others are not.

But you need a doctor to look at you.

Period.

@Ragman,

Yes ik i was very confused on his advice because im pretty sure its not sugar or whatever he said. I eat a lot honestly but im also healthy. I weigh 140 pounds and im in grade 9. I also am getting the results from a blood test i got 2 day either tomorrow or next week. I was also told that i had seizure while i was blacked out. I got a different doctor and he said it could be diabetes. But im not unhealthy. i honestly hate candy ;/. I eat alot of fruit and occasionally and energy dring after my soccer games. Also while thinking about it i occasionally get dizzy when i stand up and my eyes tend to twitch alot left and right. Thx for your help so far =). Will keep u updated.

I'm following along and agree it can have differing causes. I'm also not a doctor but a medical reading type person since I worked in research in my early working life and am still interested, especially when a real person like you is dealing with this. Keep us in the loop, please, if you don't mind.

Yes, they often know nothing, so always remember THE INTERNET IS THE BEST DOCTOR IN TOWN..Smile
There are plenty of health forums around the net, so look them up and ask around and you'll find people with the same symptoms and you can discuss it with them and compare notes.
Like I said, I've been having the same symptoms as you on and off for many years and it's not serious for me because it's just a temporary imbalance in the bodies chemistry. Racing cyclists call it "the bonk" or "hunger knock", which is why in long races they pick up food and drink at feeding stations, but it could happen to anybody, cyclist or not.
If you feel ill again at school or wherever, get them to phone for an ambulance and the hospital doctors will give you a good checking over..Smile

@Harry Blake,
In no way does this sound like hypoglycemia. Please quit suggesting more uninformed and unknown internet users.

Like Mr Blake said, he has the same symptoms so I should think that makes him well qualified to comment, especially as her first doctor didn't know what was wrong.
And as Mr Blake suggested, it's a good idea to compare notes with others on the internet who have the symptoms, such as at this site-
http://www.nomorepanic.co.uk/showthread.php?t=77271

For example here's an interesting quote from there-
"I'm like that too. I have to eat every couple of hours or I get icky and dizzy and just all round funny feeling.
I just make sure I eat every couple of hours, something like a pear or a banana or a packet of sultanas. My doctor says that a lot of people who suffer from anxiety benefit from eating this way because we often use so much energy with our anxiety that we don't notice but it affects our body"

@Harry Blake,
Really, Harry...
The symptoms may mimic hypoglycemia, but that would probably be the least of what could be a legion of real nasty conditions. I had similar symptoms.
Now the pendulum has swung to type II diabetes.
So the best advice is to stick with doctors and, of course parents.

@Nathaniel00890,
Please seek another Doctor's opinion.

It could be a lot of things so tests should be made.

When I was your age, I would collapse as well, black dots in my vision, collapse hit the ground, blacked out but re-awoke, it was diagnosed then as low blood pressure.

It went away eventually, many, many years ago.

So it could be deficiencies in your diet as well.

Get a blood test and any other test you need. This would be frightening to you and don't ever listen to people that google and try to give you answers, you can only get suggestions via the internet and ultimately, Doctors to confirm.

I sympathize.

There is lots of information available, but I'm sorry you have to chase it.
We probably have a lot of threads on it here and posters share it..

But, better, is there a way you could actually talk with your doctor?

Just as a starter, look at the mayo clinic site -

I'm sorry this is happening, but fortunately, this condition is manageable. You need to get specifics from your doctor. Bring your mother along if she is preparing most of your food, as you need to be on the same page about this.

Its really hard to say what it is. It can be a million things, but if I were you I would definitely go back to the doctors office and let them know to run more tests. Because that is not normal. I hope you figure out what it is and everything will be okay.
