I've told my son he should see the GP but of course it's now the weekend, when I picked him up from work last night (well it was 12am) he told me that when he set out to catch the bus to worl yesterday aternoon, he suddenly felt unwell, he got up about 1pm, set off for work about 2, the busstop is 5 mins away, just as he got there he started to feel queezy, he started to retch as he felt he was going to throw up then he said it was like a black curtain was coming down over his eyes, everything slowly went black but he knew his eyes were wide open, he heard the bus pull up and told me he downlt know how he pulled himself together to get onm cos he couldn;t see anything, he said he felt people must have thought he weas drugged or something. This is all very unusual for my son as he is very fit and not prone to illness. anyway, he says he managed to pay for his fare even though he insists he could not see, he heard the change in the coin tray and picked it up then went to sit down, he says he didn't know if he was going to actually sit on a passenger as he couldn;t see! Whilst he was telling me thid as we drove homne it sounded so bizarre! Anyway, he then says as he sat down he suddenly felt soaked in sweat from his head and put his head down and had a massive headache and felt sick, He says he stayed that way for a while, it takes 20 minutes on that part of the bus journey to work, by the time he got to town he says he opened his eyes and could see oh abnd didn't feel sick anymore, but the headache stayed with him in a milder form all day.

I have just spoken to my son at work and he won;t let me take him to hospital tomorrow but he will get to the gp on monday. Someone at work has told him it could have been low blood pressure and he's taking it seriously (as much as 24 year olds can)
I'm with bednobs hear and sounds like he nearly fainted. I get it where my vision will go like a fuzzy tv screen then black over and I cant hear much, then if I can sit down to stop myself fainting afterwards I am very hot and get a throbbing headache if I havent fully fainted
From my mid teens to mid twenties I used to faint every now and again. I used to feel sick like your son did and I would sweat buckets from my face when I came around. The worst part was when I didn`t actually faint because then the whole thing seemed to last for longer.
yer your body passes out to restore to normal so if you dont then get bad head and body works overtime making you sweat
Doesn´t sound a big deal.

It MIGHT be migraine ....but it doubt it.

The clue:
Got up at 1pm......set off for work at 2pm.....walked for 5mins......didnt say anything about breakfast or eating,or what he had done the night before..drinks etc......


I agree with the low blood sugar and fainting group.

He should see his GP should it happen again..........but no urgency....in my opinion.
<<<never has a drink or food before he goes as they searve food at the pub.<<

and there is his problem.
