Fainted today

I fainted this morning :( At work :(( In my collegues office :(((

Yeah, it was pretty stressful! I got all worked up about a stitch (pain) in my side, that just wouldn't go away! I called my mom, thought maybe she could diagnose me, but she only made it worse; "Maybe it's a blood clot!" She said! OMG... [freaking out ensues!] I run to my collegues office and proceed to tell her the story and I feel it... the blood, rushing out of my head. *1,2,3... down for the count! I had fainted! When I came to, my collegue and another co-worker we standing in front of me, just staring at me! They weren't sure what to do... but I did, and I just slunk too the floor and laid there taking deep breaths till I calmed down. (which actually took a while!)
(ASIDE: Yes, I am a fainter! I have fainted from the sight of my own blood. I will faint if I talk about a medical condition pertaining to blood. Even the word "clot" [shudders] is not a good one to use too many times around me! (I know... I'm weird! )

So back to the fainting story... I'm fine now, from the fainting. Honestly, that part didn't even phase me. My issue is that I still don't know why this side stitch persists? Is it fitness related? Do I actually have a blood clot??? Or just a spazming muscle? The pain reminds me of a *growing pain* like I used to get as a teenager, you know the ones where it sorta hurts to take really deep breaths?
I have a DR. appointment this afternoon. I hope she doesn't think I'm a freak, if it turns out to be nothing! :(

Nice spam by the way.

Anyways something tells me that it is most likely not a blood clot. You probably have been working out harder with the new diet, and with new diets comes gas.

I know how you are about blood and I try not to talk about it with you or around you.

We should hang out sometime, haven't talked in a long time.

I doubt it's a c-word as well... gosh you and mom are a couple of freaks. You were having a muscle spasm- eat a couple bananas and oranges and call it a day.
A friend of mine had a similar pain in her chest in highschool and freaked out during class... we all thought she was going to die the way she was freaking. Turned out it was a... wait for it...
muscle spasm in her lung.

You guys are right. Doctor said it was just my intercostal muscles (muscles between the ribs)were cramping. She thinks it was from walking to the bus carrying a heavy backpack!

But the doctors appointment wasn't all for nothing. She did give me the results from my last physical and told me that my cholesterol levels were excellent! YIPEE!
