    Hi All,

    Yesterday on my way into London on the train I fainted. Am in my 11th wk of LL and have been so well to date. Other than loosing a little more hair but still have plenty I have been really well. I blacked completely out! could feel my self feeling faint tried to go in the toilet that was locked next thing lent down to get my water and came around to find myself being picked up and helped onto a seat! All day yesterday felt lightheaded and sick and was on toilet alot (sorry to mention that bit) Not sure if I had picked up a bug as my legs felt like lead weights too. Today I feel as normal do not feel unwell at all did go straight to bed when I got in although that was not until 9pm last night. Would be interested to hear if many of you have fainted, do not necessarily think it is due to LL or VLCD could be that my iron may be down. Thanks will wait to hear from you all :confused:

    Hi Beetle,

    I had the same two weeks ago. The first aid lady that helped me at Waterloo said it happens all the time. the day it happened to me I was tired and it was very humid and I had forgotten to have my packs the night before. so probably just a drop in my blood pressure. I went to the dr that same week and my blood pressure was as normal as a blood pressure can be.
    Just have a rest and drink lots I am sure you will be fine, if not get to the drs for a checkup.

    Have you been feeling dizzy apart from that? Had you had enough water?

    I fainted a couple of times and felt dizzy a LOT, so ended up going into RTM a bit early.

    If it keeps on, visit your doctor.

    Thanks ladies I really have not had any dizzy spells prior to this in 11 wks so I suppose it was possibly dehydration more than any thing else serious
