Patient :Hi, Im currently pregnant at 19. Ive never had this problem before I got pregnant, but I keep blacking out. There are times were I'll suddenly get really light headed and the next thing I see is my husband telling me he's been shaking me and calling my name for a few minutes and I havent been responding. We'll be walking somewhere and I start feeling sick to my stomach and seeing black spots and then he's catching me before I hit the ground. The first OB GYN visit I had, they needed to draw blood. I was fine for the first two vials and then I started to faint. I dont remember anything after that, but my husband said that he could see me getting droopy but I stopped, opened my eyes really wide, threw my head back and started shaking like a seizure. I kept trying to fold my arm up to my chest and I was throwing up and turning white enough to see my veins. It only lasted 10 seconds but I felt like I was gone for an hour. All I remember is seeing bright colors, feeling happy and hearing laughter. When I came out of it, I was confused because I didnt know where I was and it took a while for everything to come back to me. The lady who took my blood said that was normal, gave me a juice box and sent me home without even checking anything. I dont know what to do and I really feel lost. Please help!
