    Hubby came home from work at 5.30 and said he didnt feel well. He fell asleep on the sofa,no temp. Woke up bout 30 mins ago and went to the toilet. He did look a bit pale. I heard this altmighty thud and called his name with no answer. Ran upstairs and he had passed out hitting his head on the bath. His eyes were open but didnt respond for a couple of seconds. I put a cloth on his head and then he said he was going to be sick. Which he was...He says he hasnt got cramps on his tummy.Feeling a little better and doesnt seem to have a temp,yet. I dont know what to do. What could it be??? Please advise. Im so scared.:cry: He did say he felt a little nauseas at lunch and then started feeling flue not long after.

    Wow, take him to the hospital. If he hit his head hard enough, he could have a concussion, plus passing out is no small thing either. Hope he feels better!

    phone the on-call doctor and explain all the symptoms or ring NHS direct - they should be able to give you the advice you need. sorry I'm not being more helpful, but I'm not a doctor. hope all is ok hun & nothing serious. xxx

    I'd definitely call NHS direct. Or force him to go to folkestone walk-in centre to be checked out- he could faint again and do serious damage!

    My son had an ear infection and really bad cold. Just rung nhs and his bp has always been that "low",so i quess he has borderline low bp. He is on muscle relaxents for his back and had some cocodomol for the pain. According to the nhs if he is feeling unwell,ie fluy and his bp is low anyway the cocodomol can apparently make him feel woozy. We have to keep an eye on him where he bumped his head and if anything changes he needs to go in asap.

    There will be no sleep for me tonight. I think he is already fed up of me asking if he is ok. Does he feel dizzy? Does he have a headache? ect. He scared the hell out of me,i almost burst into tears.

    Yeah, I wouldn't sleep either, I'm exactly the same. It must have been terrifying, and you definitely don't want him to do that to you again!
    If he won't go to the hospital, will he at least go to the GP? Worth it to put your mind at rest.
    I'm sure he'll be fine, but I think he does need to see someone. He can't keep fainting on you!

    I know! Im having such a stress free pregnancy.:dohh: I will be making him go to the gp tomorrow. If he doesnt want to do it for himself,he can do it for me and the kids. Im just glad the kids are at nannas tonight. I was petrified so god knows how my poor boys would have felt,seeing daddy who is 6.4 laying on the bathroom floor. Men,why do they have to be so dam stubborn.:growlmad:

    I don't want to panic you, but please call the hospital and get him checked. Passing out and vomitting could be a sign of something underlying. Please convince him that you need to get him checked for YOUR peace of mind. I don't think he'd want to stress out a pregnant woman. Hope all is well hun.
