Re: Anybody feeling faint??

  1. I just started my job at a surgery clinic and I keep nearly fainting! It keeps happening and all I'm doing is basic dressing changes when it happens. I've done a million and now all the sudden I can't take it. I'm so frustrated. I'm hoping it's not pregnanacy. I'm eating good...I just don't know what else it could be. I have a heart condition related to vagus nerve maybe that has something to do with it. Or maybe I'm just turning weak...I dunnno...Any ideas?

    I'm having major problems with fainting...I don't faint, but nearly. I get to the point where I can hardly see, hardly hear, and lifting something off the table feels 30 pounds heavier than it is. All I'm doing are general dressing changes. I've never had a problem before, but all the sudden, on my first job I can't take it. It's very frustrating to me.
