In the last few months, (July till now) I have been experiencing standing up and passing out. When I start opening my eyes or start realizing where I am and who I am, I notice my body shaking uncontrollably. The first time, I got out of bed and went pulled a stool and started climbing... next minute, I found myself on the floor with the stool above me and the back of my head against the dresser in an upward angel with body shaking uncontrollably! The last time, very recently, I was walking towards my 23 month old son in the play room and must have blackout, found myself on the floor with my right shoulder on the fuzball table handle, (which is placed on the ground) my shoulder was badly bruised and swell like a balloon, meanwhile laying on the floor trying to figure out where I am, who I am, then seeing my body shaking uncontrollably. I have done blood works for my doctor and he told me that all came normal. Can anyone help me on this issue? I have been drinking a lot of fluids and eat sweet stuff, stay away from Coffee, do not drink besides one or two once every 6 months to a year and I'm scared to fall down the stairs when my husband is at work and finding myself getting badly hurt on the tiles. Also worried about who would come rescue my kids and me before my husband gets home. I had this a lot recently! Even during when I've been sitting on a chair or standing up slowly.. I'm very worried!

I have a blood pressure machine at home and when I took it, several times it came as 59/44 .... I was feeling vomity and extremely sick! This result has come several times on my machine. my normal blood pressure is 120/80.

Look into the possibility of Dysautonomia or Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.
