No, see doc!: Did you get sweaty before your other episodes of syncope? Was the cause of the episodes ever identified? Sweating, dizziness, or tunnel vision can indicate low blood sugar, low blood pressure, or other causes of syncope. Let your doctor know that you are experiencing these symptoms to help him or her identify exactly what's going on. Get an evaluation before you have a serious injury.

No: Your symptoms may or may not be related. In other words, the same or different causally background. For example, days autonomic can cause both. My advise is see someone that can determine the cause of your fainting and then you might have a better idea.

Any broken skin: Tetanus spores require only access to an open wound (cut or puncture)to begin the process of growth and elaboration of the toxin of tetanus. The nastier and dirtier the wound, the more likely you are to find tetanus a factor. As long as the skin is not broken, concern is minimal.

Hand Surgery 39 years experience
Sometimes: Carpal tunnel happens in individuals who are predisposed to having excessive pressure on their median nerves at the wrist by virtue of their wrist anatomy i.E smaller or larger carpal tunnel, sensitive nerve. On top of that predisposition, overuse of the wrist and specifically flexing/extension will bring on symptoms. While work can certainly contribute so can any other use if the hand and wrist.

What is micturital syncope?

Dr. Joseph Roosth
Internal Medicine 35 years experience
Vagus Nerve: In order to emply one's bladder, one has to tighten up the abdominal muscles to increase the pressure surrounding the bladder. This process results in increased stimulation of the vagus nerve or tenth cranial nerve, which incidentally slows the heart rate. Sudden drops in the heart rate and blood pressure then cause susceptible people to pass out or have syncope.

Extremity injuries: Cheerleading is physical and with the acrobatics performed extremity injuries are the most common. However although not as common I do see a reasonable amont of head trauma and neck injuries. Especially in cheerleaders doing pyramids.
