I keep feeling like I'm gonna faint from the smallest activities. I'm scared working a normal job has become dangerous because of the possibility of me fainting often. I walk dogs currently and I'm scared of fainting and hitting my head on the pavement. My last job allowed me to sit a lot but I got fired from there. My job before that didn't allow me to sit at all and I had fainted multiple times, resulting in concussions. Due to those experiences I quit. I hope I can get on disability but I know that is it extremely difficult.

      @Zoey_Val that is my plan currently. I'm looking at some part time remote work while I figure out applying for disability.

      I use compression socks and increase my salt and fluids however I haven’t found either to help much it is scary every day. I am sorry to hear about work I am in the same boat here maybe there is a possibility of remote work that you can do from home or try to get on some kind of disability. I am looking into both now

      What do your doctors say about your concerns? What treatments have you tried?

        @CoffeeAndDogs My doctor haven't seemed to care honestly. They just say I need to up my sodium intake or be careful. They haven't even tried to put me on any kind of treatment. I was diagnosed when I was 13 and my doctor didn't do much about it. Im now switching over my doctor's since I'm 21 and I'm trying to finally get proper treatment.

          @roksuh have you tried compression clothing? On my bad days waist or leg compression garments help with my blood pressure/dizzy or fainting spells.
