Is this bad?

Tonight, I stood up to go to the table. Last thing I remember was walking towards the table and then I woke up 15 seconds later because I passed out. what I later found out was that I was banging my head against the table and saying gibberish for about 10 seconds. about 2 months ago, the same thing happened without the spasming when I stood up in the bathtub. I collapsed and hit the side of the tub. there have been no incidents since then until today. is this bad?

A couple weeks ago I climbed out of my car and was suddenly super dizzy. I grabbed the door to stabilize myself, but then everything faded to blackness. I woke up, like, five seconds later on the gravel. The side of my head was killing me; there was a gigantic knot that was bleeding. It hurt too much to move. Nobody noticed because I was the last out of the car. My mom said that when she was my age (15) she frequently got dizzy, too. So I guess it's a common think for us and hormones.

Obviously that is bad. It doesn't mean it isn't treatable though. You should tell your parents.

Orthostastic hypotension rarely gets that bad. Yes, contact your doctor.

Yes, it's defiantly something you need to have checked by a doctor. Who knows when and where that could happen to you which makes it dangerous already, get checked by a doctor!

That sounds like a seizure to me, you should go get it checked out.

I think that u should go to the doctor as soon as possible because it could possably be head injerys but do not worry cause it could just be normal

Umm, yeah thats bad. Sounds like a fugue state and thats not good. You beed to see a neurologist. Need to make sure theres no tumor or aneurism or other issue in the brain.
