Well for a while now PTAL has had some strange "events". She would get really weak and start to feel like she was going to pass out. It has been going on for maybe 3-4 years and they were really rare, but they recently started getting closer together, and getting worse.
She would feel tingly in her fingers and toes and feel light headed and be super weak. Because she is the size of a walking stick and diabetes runs on her fathers side of the family we thought it was hypoglycemia. Which means your blood sugar can drop too low for you to function normally. We always fed her and she would get better.
Well about a week ago we are walking through the mall, and she had been fine. Her boyfriend noticed she was slowing down, which we usually have to run to keep up with her, and he asked her if she needed to eat. She said yes, and PASSED OUT!
He calls to me and we of course go into wake her up figure out what happened holy crap we are in the mall. It was nuts!
Well the people in the nail salon that saw her fall out called 911. When the very nice paramedics and firemen showed up they took her blood pressure, blood sugar, and other vitals of which were all normal. If it was hypoglycemia that blood sugar number would have been crazy low.
So off to the doctor we go. Guess what he says....
This means that some trigger causes her body to fully dilate the blood vessels in her legs and rush blood to her legs. This means all that blood leaves her brain, and she falls out. Now according tot he doctor this only occurs to people when they are standing. When we thought about all the incidents she was always standing and sitting down seemed to fend off the event. However we have no idea what her trigger is. According to WebMD it could be a bunch of stuff, but so far nothing has happened everytime. Therefore she has labeled herself a fainting goat.
Now for the horrible person part of me..
She will be on stage during a crowning. Her name will be called and she will fall out!
I just want it on film, please! This is where I am crowned Most Horrible Person!
