It could be any number of things, Susan, but I suspect your resting blood pressure may be low. Your doctor will be able to give you a more definitive diagnosis. I recommend you make an appointment soon. While the condition may not be serious in itself, the possibility that you may again faint is of concern as you may be injured.

Best wishes


thank you very much and your right I should see a doctor I do have a history of low blood pressure but only when I'm pregnent.
