Mayneed further look: Talk to a cardiologist . You may need a tilt table study, a carotid massage to see if it causes any undue slowing of heart beat, an implantable loop recorder to be able to record your heart beat while you are having the syncope to see if it is a problem and / or an ep study to see if you are at risk for arrhythmia or slow heart beat. ...Read more

Not normal: If it's not related to your pillow height position, or bed being too stiff, then you have to look at your body in this equation. Also depending on your severity or length of time that you had pcos, and other procedures done, this may play into fascial restrictions or tightness. In either case, you need to speak with your pcp about this, and see what simple solutions you can arrive at. ...Read more

Also, think like professional athletes to get the extra medical/chiropractic/massage therapies/athletic training etc. You should consider having this a part of your life as well. Exercising can tax your body and you need to have way to relieve pressure of prevent injuries. ...Read more
